KENAI, Alaska (AP) – Country musician Zac Brown has lost a property line dispute involving his home in Alaska.

KSRM-AM reported Tuesday that the Kenai Peninsula Borough Planning Commission voted down Brown’s petition to vacate a section and pedestrian easement.

The commission voted 5-4 against the request Monday following more than two hours of public testimony.

Brown’s property on a secluded road outside the city of Homer includes several lots below the location of his house.

The musician asked the borough to vacate a section easement that allowed public access.

Homer resident John Fowler owns the property adjacent to Brown’s property and is heading an effort to build a public trail in the area.

Commission members say the next step would be for Brown to take his request to the state of Alaska.
