Capital Improvement Projects (CIP)

In the spring, Anchorage Office of Management and Budget posts a list of potential Capital Improvement Projects for each of the Community Councils and asks them to prioritize their needs for funding. The Councils, in turn, ask their members to help with setting priorities for spending funds from municipal bonds and state and federal grants. Projects are prioritized within funding categories. We use online polls for this.

Pioneer Drive improvements from Muldoon Road to Resurrection Drive were completed in October 2014. Sidewalks were added. Parking for Chugach Foothills Park was expanded from eight spaces to 25. Flower gardens were moved from the median to the park and a new safety median between the parking lot and the street was constructed. Playground and drainage improvements are scheduled for summer of 2018 in the park.
