Skagway Contemplates Urbanization

Skagway2

The township of Skagway (link) is considering urbanizing after a town meeting turned ugly with demands from local citizens.

“I was shocked,” said a long time resident. “We usually get about five people in the meeting, and this time it was six!”

Apparently the meeting turned violent when a councilmember suggested that the railway – the only method of ground transport in the area should be taken apart. Citizens began complaining about the lack of roads and services, and soon began to pound on the tables demanding coffeeshops and boutique stores.

“I never knew people wanted such things here,” exclaimed the councilmember, “I mean, really!”

A new proposal has been offered that Skagway should consult a development company to determine if greater urbanization is possible. It is awaiting a vote by local election.
