YOUR FUTURE ROADS.

FNSB Community, did we get them right?

We Need Your Feedback, Fairbanks!

The Public Review Draft of the FNSB Roads Plan is READY FOR YOUR REVIEW!

The Deadline for Comments is Friday, 10/21/22

Download the Comment Tracker to view feedback on the May 2022 Draft Corridor Maps and see how comments were addressed in the public review draft development.

VERY IMPORTANT – PLEASE REMEMBER 

Road corridors in the plan will only be dedicated on private property at the time that landowners subdivide. The subdivision process allows for some flexibility in road alignment and design if the alternative corridor achieves the same goals as the connection identified in the plan. The Road Plan is intended to encourage and support the FNSB and developers working together to develop a road system that protects the health, safety, and well-being of the community.

How to comment.

Please be specific.

Things to keep in mind as you write your comments:

  • Please be specific. That will help the project team better understand and address your feedback. 
  • What part of the plan are you commenting on? If commenting on a specific corridor, please reference the corridor number from the plan maps.
  • Like or support a part of the plan, including specific corridors. Let us know why.
  • Dislike or don’t support a part of the plan, including specific corridors? Let us know why.
