Thread: State's RRCS stake-it-yourself program now has brochures available

  1. #1

    Default State's RRCS stake-it-yourself program now has brochures available

    Brochures are now available online at: http://dnr.alaska.gov/mlw/landsale/remrec/2012/; at the DNR Public Information Centers (PICs) in Anchorage, Juneau, and Fairbanks; at various locations around the state; or you can call or email the DNR PIC and request one be mailed to you for no charge. This is the first RRCS offering in 2 years! Program is open to eligible Alaska residents and there is a $25 application fee to enter the drawing. If you win the authorization to stake, you go out and pick your parcel within the guidelines given for your area. You turn in your application and pay some deposits, administrative fees, leasing fees, and appraisal and survey costs. When it's all platted, you then convert to a sale and pay the purchase costs. They have in-house financing available for the last step. No cabin included, just the land.

    They are also on Facebook: http://facebook.com/alaskaland/ and Twitter: #AlaskaLand4Sale and #LandForAlaskans

    From the DNR site:
    "The costs to survey state land in remote areas of the state may actually
    be
    higher than the appraised value of the land."

    The state is now hiring a contract surveyer to do all of the stakings in each area and the cost is much less than in the old days when you had to get someone out to do just one parcel.

    Too bad there is nothing in the Susitna drainage or southcentral.
    Appreciate the posting though.

    If I was an interior guy I would already have my application in! Not much within reach for us SC folks on this round. I have poked around in the OTC stuff a good bit. Nothing that really has the type of access I would want. I am hoping to go in with the inlaws in the next few years and just buy a turn-key cabin that we can reasonably get to.

    That Kakhonak Lake area would be awesome, if you could get a parcel right on the water; short hop from Homer seaplane base, perfect for Proenneke-style getaway!

    The OTC list is down in inventory this year, but the brochure for the sealed-bid auction of previously-surveyed parcels will be out soon!

    Southcentral is a real challenge for the State to offer. Where there are Settlement lands (designated by area plans when they are updated every 20 or so years), there are often mining claims, municipal entitlements, university lands, school trust lands, or boroughs that have very expensive development requirements (usually building roads). The staking program has all but stopped new offerings in the Mat-Su Borough for these reasons. Subdivisions have continued, but on a much slower than past pace there. Hopefully something will give in the new draft of the Mat-Su Borough platting ordinances so the State can offer more opportunities for land purchases in MSB again.

    As well do I, may we both get one! I love the quick turnaround time this year, I did it in 2008 and it seemed like a long time before I actually got to go out and stake.

    Darnit, I can't find how to edit this post. Something's not displaying right. Anyway, wanted to say that the State's DNR Land Sales team will have a presentation at the Great Alaska Sportsman Show on how to buy land from them. http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...t.php?f=&a=160

    Remember the deadlines for the State's land sale programs!!

    Check out http://dnr.alaska.gov/mlw/landsale/

    If you have been an Alaska resident for the past year, you can apply for the Remote Recreational Cabin Staking Program (until 5PM April 26) or you can bid in the Sealed-Bid Auction until 5PM May 30). If you're not an Alaska resident (or haven't been for the last year), you can wait for the Initial Over-the-Counter Offering (IOTC) or you can buy right now from the Over-the-Counter Offering.

    DNR will also be at the Fairbanks Outdoor Show this weekend at the Carlson Center.

    The dnr site shows that 154 people applied for the Teklanika parcels. 3 out of 5 parcels had less than half of the parcels even applied for.
