What We Do

We can provide guidance when you subdivide land, replat parcels, rezone land, apply for zoning variances, alcohol administrative reviews and conditional use permits, or address neighborhood zoning complaints.  We administer the Municipality's land use and subdivision regulations, implement comprehensive land-use plans, and also update "Title 21" - the land use section of the Anchorage Municipal Code.  We staff the Planning and Zoning Commission, Platting Board, Zoning Board of Examiners and Appeals, and the Urban Design Commission.
