Letter from the Airport:

Subject: South Airpark Access Road and Berm Comments:

Thank you for submitting comments about the airport’s development plans of South Airpark, including the access road and proposed berm.  Your comments are important to us and they will all be taken into consideration as we continue to develop this and other projects.  As a result of some of your concerns, the airport will be gathering additional information regarding landscaping concepts and traffic analysis this summer. Later this fall, we will hold a meeting to discuss your concerns and the airports long range plans for South Airpark development

In addition to the airport’s meeting this fall, Acting Mayor Claman is forming an airport advisory committee to promote effective communication between community members, local government and the airport.  He plans to have this committee meet quarterly with the first meeting scheduled for September.

It is the airport’s goal to provide our neighbors with current information about airport projects and development that occurs at the airport.  We will continue to attend community council meetings in addition to the above meetings when there is new information to share.  Also, please feel free to contact Airport Manager John Parrott or myself any time you have a question or concern.

Thanks again for taking the time to submit comments and we are looking forward to our meeting this fall.

Berm Comments and Requests from the Airport Sub-Committee




Anchorage International Airport is a State-owned and operated
facility, and must conform to federal FAA regulations.  Municipal
goverment entities such as our Community Council therefore have to
try harder to be heard and recognized, even though the Airport has a
huge effect on our community council area.

Subject: ANC Runway 7R Extension – seeking public input

The purpose of this email is to bring you up to speed on what is
happening on the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC)
Runway 7R Extension project and to ask for your help.  We’re
interested in your opinion!  Please take some time to visit the project
website (( and complete a
quick survey about mitigation for the Sisson Loop Trail.  Comments are
requested by January 30, 2009.  Please encourage your friends,
neighbors and colleagues to do the same!
Here are the details:
DOT&PF is continuing work on an Environmental Assessment (EA) to
analyze the proposed Runway 7R Extension project at ANC.  The
project would extend Runway 7R and relocate its associated lights and
navigational aids to reduce taxiway congestion and taxiing delays
caused by arriving cargo aircraft.  The Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA) would require access to the proposed relocated Approach
Lighting System (ALS) towers in order to have the ability to address
maintenance needs as soon as they arise.  This has implications for
the Sisson Loop Trail because portions of the Sisson Loop trail overlie
and cross the access road.

The project team is currently working with representatives from the
Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage (NSAA) to develop ways to
alleviate the conflicts between the needs of FAA maintenance and the
desires of the trail user community. Two concepts are being proposed
to mitigate impacts to trail users.

Sisson Loop Trail Re-Route Concept

Under the trail re-route concept, sections of the Sisson Loop would be
re-routed in order to avoid shared use of the access roads in the
project area. Trail users and the leadership of NSAA have proposed
that the Sisson Loop be realigned in order to avoid conflicts between
trail users and the FAA maintenance vehicles and ANC vehicles that
periodically use sections of the road considered part of the Sisson
Loop trail.

Sisson Loop Existing Alignment Concept

Under the Sisson Loop Existing Alignment Concept, the Sisson Loop
would essentially retain its existing alignment. One exception would
occur northwest of the relocated runway safety area (RSA). Currently,
a perimeter road and security fence run along the outer edge of the
Airport, and a section of the Sisson Loop lies just to the west of the
security fence. The proposed runway extension and RSA extend west
beyond the existing location of the perimeter road and fence;
therefore, the perimeter road, security fence, and the affected portion
of the Sisson Loop would be relocated to the west of the new RSA
threshold and the cut/fill footprint.

Website Update

The project website ( has
been updated to include figures and additional information regarding
these two concepts.  Please review the website and take the survey!
Comments are requested by January 30, 2009.

Trail Mitigation Fact Sheet

A fact sheet describing each of the two concepts and figures are
attached.  Please distribute this fact sheet and figures to your

Feel free to call or email me if you have any questions.  You may also

Subject:        FW: Fence along Raspberry Rd.
At the last Sand Lake community council meeting there was a question
about the fencing along Raspberry Road.  (apparently it is down in
some areas).
I spoke with Airfield Maintenance and they confirmed that the fence in
question belongs to the FCC.
South Access Road, and more
This from Linda Bustamante, June 5, 2008:
The stakes that you may be seeing along Raspberry Rd. are NOT part
of an airport project, we (the Airport Management team) believe these
maybe ACS, part of the fiber lines to be installed.  The design project
for the South Park Access Rd. has been discussed at 2 airport
summer construction public meetings (see attached ads) and also at
Sand Lake Community Council meetings.  The preliminary design
project for the road is 35% completed with a consultant being hired this
month to complete the design.   A conceptual visual berm will be
presented at a SLCC meeting, at which time we will have more
information on the road itself.  Is SLCC meeting this summer (July or
August).  Also, construction, when approved, will occur in 2009, with
some preliminary work possible this fall.  All necessary permits
including any that may be required by the MUNI will be acquired prior
to construction.  I’m also talking with our leasing department about
presenting information to SLCC on other development plans in this
area.  And I’ll check into providing additional information on the
construction map on the website.  We will be at the 9 June SLCC
meeting, pleae feel free to come and ask questions of us….  tnx, Linda

CC:       xx

At this weeks Sand Lake CC meeting there was a question about the
Airport Firing Range.  I spoke with Captain McGinnis and he has
advised the following:

The firing range is currently closed and will reopen in mid-April until
October 1st.  The range is used between the hours of 10am to 8pm , 7
days a week.  In addition to the firing range, neighbors may
occassionally hear Fish & Wildlife performing wildlife management.
This could include hazing birds using pyrotechnic devices that could
sound like a shotgun.

To verify that shotgun sounds are being produced by the Airport
Police & Fire Department or Fish & Wildlife, please feel free to call the
Airport Watch Commander at 748-2204 or Airport Dispatch 266-2411.
Both are always aware of all scheduled target practices or wildlife
management efforts at the Airport.

If you have any questions about this information, please let me know.
