AS 41.21.170. Declaration of Purpose.

(a) The purpose of AS 41.21.170 - 41.21.178 is to establish, subject to valid existing rights, the state-owned or acquired land and water described in AS 41.21.172 as the Shuyak Island State Park. In accordance with the covenants and deed restrictions set by the Kodiak Island Borough that support the basic tenets of the Alaska lifestyle, the primary purpose of establishing the Shuyak Island State Park is to preserve, protect, and enhance traditional public access to and use of the area's natural resources for various activities including sport and subsistence hunting, sport, subsistence, and commercial fishing, and trapping.

(b) Under the provisions of AS 38.05.300 , state land, water, or land and water containing more than 640 acres may be closed to multiple purpose use only by act of the legislature. Because the area described in AS 41.21.172 exceeds 640 acres, AS 41.21.170 - 41.21.178 are intended to close the described land and water to multiple purpose use in conformity with AS 38.05.300 and to dedicate them as a special purpose site in accordance with art. VIII, Sec. 7, Constitution of the State of Alaska.
