Chena Hot Springs Resort owner Bernie Karl has a lot of ideas intended to create a utopia of environmental sustainability at the end of Chena Hot Springs Road outside Fairbanks. Karl says Chena Hot Springs is in the middle of a 20-year development plan, which already includes a geothermal plant that began operating in 2006.
