Boards and Commissions Appointments

Municipal Boards and Commissions play a vital role in our civic life and are a crucial element in our municipal government. These volunteer bodies assist in a variety of functions, from ensuring that our parks and libraries remain cared for, to overseeing our zoning efforts and advising on the budget. Each October, the Mayor submits nominations for board and commission appointees for the Assembly to approve. There are currently 83 submissions under consideration – 10 reappointments and 73 new nominations. The Assembly will hold a work session on November 4, 1-3pm to review these submissions.

Upcoming Business


Every ten years after the U.S. Census is complete, governments across the country update their election districts to match the new population data. In Anchorage, the process is called Reapportionment and is led by a Reapportionment Committee, which is charged with reviewing the State final redistricting plan, taking public input, and developing proposed maps for the Anchorage Assembly to consider for adoption to realign the boundaries of the six Assembly Election Districts to ensure fair and equal representation. ​The process will take place over the next several months and will have many opportunities for public input. Stay tuned for updates on how to get involved and visit the Reapportionment Committee page for more information. ​
