Scenic Foothills Community Council Meeting October 5th

Mayor Ethan Berkowitz arrived unannounced at our Scenic Foothills Community Council  October 5th. The Municipality of Anchorage had hatched a plan to move 120 diesel school buses next to Totem Theatre onto land reserved for an elementary school in our quiet, residential neighborhood – a big health and safety issue for us.

What were they thinking?

We had quickly organized protests on social media, sent e-mails and letters, made lots of phone calls to public officials and testified at public meetings, to which most of us hadn’t officially been invited. It worked. Our Scenic Foothills neighborhood was saved.

The mayor came to our community council meeting to tell us they had heard us and would make a different plan. SFCC President Jamie Lang invited the mayor to share a piece of “no bus barn” cake that one of our neighbors had brought to the meeting. He did. Way to go, neighbors! You rock!
