Anchorage Assembly looking at land rules

Jan 22, 2013 -- 10:45am


- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Anchorage Assembly is looking at proposed changes to the city zoning codes. The Anchorage Daily News says one hearing has already been held on the proposed changes and another is scheduled for Tuesday night. The Assembly is looking at some 700 pages of rules that govern development in Anchorage. The issues raised so far range from how far buildings need to be set back from streams to requirements for snow storage on new commercial developments. Some builders and building owners say the proposed changes are too restrictive, while some residents and community activists believe the proposals don't go far enough to raise development standards in Anchorage. The hearing begins at 5 p.m. at the Loussac Library.
