“Your Voice for Responsible Growth”
Our goal is to make Anchorage the
most livable city in America

implementation of Anchorage 2020, the city's award winning comprehensive
plan adopted in 2001.

Parks & Open Space___________________________________
People choose to live here because of our breathtaking views, wilderness parklands, award winning trail system, urban salmon runs, pocket parks andplay spaces near homes
Meaningful Public Involvement
Citizens and business owners feel they have a stake in the community’s future, and public forums where their voices are heard. Important decisions are made in an objective, transparent manner.
Buses come every 10-15 minutes on main routes. Streetcars run down on the A-C couplet and Northern Lights Benson. Streets are reconstructed to invite safe walking and biking.
|Affordable Homes Near Jobs____________________________________
More homes are built downtown and in midtown so people can easily
walk to work. Eventually, strip malls are rebuilt as neighborhood
centers; with shops, offices, homes, restaurants and other conveniences.
