Assembly Approves the Anchorage 2040 Land Use Plan 

The Anchorage Assembly approved the Planning and Zoning Commission’s recommended draft of the Anchorage 2040 Land Use Plan on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.  This draft reflected the Commission’s recommended changes.  The Assembly made 18 amendments to the Commission's draft plan before adopting it.

The Planning and Zoning Commission approved the 2016 public hearing draft plan (with changes), and a June 5, 2017 revised plan was then forwarded to the Assembly with a recommendation to adopt.   

The Assembly's amendments will be incorporated into the plan soon.  Click here to go to draft documents

Past Event Information

The LUPM has two essential functions: 1) Designate the future location and intensity of residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional development throughout the Anchorage Bowl; and 2) help ensure Anchorage's growing population will have adequate housing, employment, education, and recreation opportunities.

The LUPM has not been formally updated and adopted since 1982. The 2016 update includes all the land use changes since then, such as rezonings, adopted neighborhood and district plans, and the latest estimates of needs for residential, industrial and commercial lands until 2040. 

The LUPM is not a zoning map; it provides long-term generalized policy guidance and a legal basis for future changes to the city's zoning map.
