Based on the current population trends, South Peninsula Hospital predicts Homer will be the largest city on the Kenai Peninsula by 1993.

Almost 90 percent of Kachemak Bay area residents think Homer should have a centralized business district downtown, according to a questionnaire, and a plan for boardwalks, sidewalks and landscaping is created as a result.

Area schools are crowded as enrollment surpasses projections at most schools, with much of the increase focused at the early elementary grades.

Kenai Peninsula Community College opens, offering 28 courses, including an associate of arts degree.
