Land Use Plan Map Project (2016)
The Land Use Plan Map (LUPM) is an amendment to the Anchorage 2020: Anchorage Bowl Comprehensive Plan that helps achieve its goals over the next 20 years.
A community discussion draft LUPM is now available for public review and comment. The narrative report accompanying the map is available below as a whole document or by the three sections.

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.
