North Shanly Area Development Plan
The Division of Land Management, in coordination with the Parks & Recreation Department, has undertaken an exciting planning effort for a parcel of land donated to the Borough in the 1990's.
North Shanly is ideally located in close proximity to long-time local businesses, the University, and attractions like Creamer's Field, the Fairgrounds and the Tanana Valley Farmer's Market.
A large enough portion of the property is likely suitable for development. A Financial Feasibility Plan will be completed in 2020 which will help to direct the terms of any future public-private partnership for development of this land.
Opportunities for public involvement will be numerous in the coming year:
An initial public meeting of key stakeholders in the project area occured in the summer of 2017 resulting in the initial draft of the plan as presented above.
