Addresses have come to Portage Valley!
Addresses were assigned to all occupiable structures throughout the Portage Valley. This effort will greatly enhance 9-1-1 emergency response, improve delivery of private express mail and help others locate specific homes and businesses.
This continues the Turnagain Arm addressing project begun in May, 2006 when Girdwood addresses were assigned in six phases. The rollout was completed by the end of September, 2006.
Letter notification makes it official
Letters were sent to property owners, listing the new addresses assigned that would become effective October 1, 2008. It is the responsibility of the property owner to post the address, and to notify any tenants of the new address. Addresses must be posted in a way to be clearly visible and legible from the street.
Turnagain Arm Communities To Follow
Addresses will be assigned to the other Turnagain Arm communities in the future.
