  • DRAFT Roads and Trails Plan maps indicate a potential road or trail might cross your or a neighbor’s property.
  • Property may be affected by these potential roads or trails, if the land is ever subdivided.
  • Open houses and information on the project websites are opportunities for you to review and share thoughts and ask questions.
  • As a property owner and community member, we need your feedback!

Two Opportunities to Share Your Feedback.

What to Expect.

  • We will have maps covering most areas of the borough with draft future roads and trails.
  • You can write or share your comments with the project team.
  • The project team will also share information, listen, and answer your questions about how specific roads and trails were selected, moved, or removed from the draft maps, and next steps.

Purpose

To evaluate and update the 1991 Comprehensive Roads Plan in order to improve the current and future road network by creating appropriate and strategic road corridors and access points across the borough.

This process aims to:​

Bring together and build from the knowledge of residents, community leaders, transportation experts, and the private sector.

Understand how the borough has and is projected to grow and change, and related challenges and opportunities for a future roads network.

Take advantage of new and improved data on things like permafrost, wetlands, and other topographical features.

Share and document examples of successes and lesson learned from the 1991 Plan and related roads policies.
