Fairbanks North Star Borough

Comprehensive Roads Plan

YOUR FUTURE ROADS.

FNSB Community, we are working hard to get it right!

April 2023 Updates

Thank you to everyone that submitted their comments on the January 2023 Draft FNSB Roads Plan. We received over 300 comments!

The project team is working in partnership with the FNSB Roads Plan Steering Committee to revise the draft plan. Check out notes and materials from the most recent, March 7th, 2023 Steering Committee meeting to learn more.

Later this summer, we will re-release the draft plan and look forward to community input on how we did to respond to your feedback.

The plan will then go before the FNSB Platting Board, Planning Commission, and Assembly as part of the adoption process and there will be additional opportunities for community input on plan.

Please connect with our team to learn more or share your feedback. We always look forward to hearing from you! Please also keep checking this project website or sign up (scroll down) for updates to learn the latest.

Thank you, Fairbanks North Star Borough Community!

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.

January 2023 Open House Handout

This January 2023 Open House Handout describes the Project Purpose, Schedule, What the Plan Does/Does Not Do, How the Plan is Implemented, 1991 Plan Progress, and Project Team Contact Information.

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.
