How Can We Help You?


 

Economic and Community Development

The Office of Economic & Community Development (OECD) is responsible for the coordination and management of municipal departments and divisions working to improve the community’s economic vitality; facilitate commercial and residential property development; enforce building and land use codes; and manage regional planning projects. Additionally, the Director oversees community programs and assets that contribute to the quality of life for those who live, work, and play in Anchorage.

OECD works to facilitate development and a multi-modal transportation system in accordance with municipal codes, protecting safety, public health and environmental resources, while also working to promote a healthy economy, strong businesses and neighborhoods, and recreational opportunities. We respond to our customers seeking code enforcement information, zoning or platting applications, building permits or inspections with open, friendly, cost-efficient and effective service.
