The Anchorage Assembly on Tuesday night near-unanimously rolled back a recently enacted safety buffer between the Government Hill neighborhood and new tanks for storing fuel and other hazardous materials at the Port of Anchorage, though such facilities must still pass a public review before being built.
Downtown Assemblyman Christopher Constant and city officials said the goal was to strike a balance between economic expansion at the port and public health and safety. Some neighbors wanted the buffer to stay.
