A meeting is proposed  this Sat. morning,
10:00 a.m. at Coffeeland on Spenard.This will be a valuable time to get together and discuss:

– Possible formal letter/resolution from WADP Planning Group council reps. and
council presidents to send to Planning and Zoning Commission with regard to
public hearing schedule.

– Possible formal request to MOA Planning Dept. from WADP Planning Group
council reps. and council presidents requesting they sponsor a public workshop
sometime in Sept. to discuss how public input was incorporated into the Public
Hearing draft and anything else we think would be appropriate.


We (Sand Lake Community Council, Turnagain Community Council, Spenard Community Council)
welcomes anyone and everyone interested in West Anchorage District Plan
and the planning, zoning, land use, and development of our communities.  We
are running out of time to put our ‘2 cents worth’ in on this plan.  Hope to see you there.

They want specific input on vacant parcels of land in our neighborhood. There are a lot of other vacant parcels that the WADP will determine future uses, like Little Campbell Lake, lands along the Coastal Trail & Pt. Woronzoff, and other areas such as near the intersection of Minessotta and Raspberry.  they also want input on other issues, such as the concept of designating the Jewell Lake/Dimond area as a Town Center, and the Jewell Lake/Raspberry intersection as a Neighborhood Center.
