West Anchorage Land Trade Task Force 

The Long-Range Planning Section announces formation of a West Anchorage Land Trade Task Force. 

This task force comprises stakeholders from West Anchorage invited by the Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) to implement a planning action initiated in the West Anchorage District Plan.  Implementation Policy #IA-1 directs the Municipality and the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport to attempt to resolve long-standing land use and ownership conflicts on some 30 parcels around the Airport.  The task force was directed to create scenarios of resolution for these parcel conflicts that might be implemented over time.  

Policy #IA-1:  Coordinate with the State of Alaska to:

  • Establish a task force with formal representation from the public, state, and local elected officials, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility (AWWU) and other municipal departments, the Airport and Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF), airport users, and FAA to assemble relevant data, regulations, needs and constraints, and possible scenarios that will ultimately lead to a long-term resolution of the airport parcel conflicts, which also retains a permanent Coastal Trail corridor.  Once completed, the MOA will take task force proposals through appropriate municipal commission and Assembly reviews with a recommendation to amend the West Anchorage District Plan accordingly.  

This West Anchorage Land Trade Task Force will convene for roughly 6-10 meetings over the next several months.  Meetings will be announced through the Municipality's Public Notices and on this site, as well as by email to interested parties requesting task force information.
