TA -- Turnagain Arm District (residential)

The TA district is intended to govern the land uses for the area known as Turnagain Arm south of Potter Marsh, including but not limited to Rainbow, Indian, Bird Creek, and Portage/Twenty Mile River. Areas within Girdwood are not included in the TA district and are covered by chapter 21.09, Girdwood. The permitted uses and densities within the TA district are to conform to the land use plan map, policies, land use definitions, and residential densities of the adopted Turnagain Arm Comprehensive Plan. The TA district regulations employ the conditional use process to provide review for major development activities. By providing a public review process and by requiring submission of detailed site plans, greater compatibility between the proposed uses and adjacent existing uses can be obtained. See AMC 21.04.060G. for additional information.
