Addresses have come to Indian!
As of February 1st, 2010, street addresses have been assigned to the community of Indian. This will ease locating a particular home in the quaint, forested community on the shores of Turnagain Arm.
As a result of the Planning Department's assigning of house numbers to all structures in Indian, the US Postal Service announced they would discontinue the Highway Contract (HC) box numbers.
Indian is the third Municipality of Anchorage community on Turnagain Arm to get addresses assigned. Girdwood was assigned in 2006, and Portage Valley in 2008.
Next up - the communities of Bird and Rainbow. Preliminary work reviewing existing street names in Bird is scheduled to being this Spring. Contact Addressing staff for more information on this process.
