Collection summary: Records of a community council serving the Fairview Neighborhood of Anchorage.
Fairview Community Council was established in 1976 by Anchorage Assembly resolution AR 76-82 to provide residents, property owners, and business owners within the neighborhood a forum for participation in government and local affairs. The organization is comprised of an executive board and general membership from the community. The Council is involved with efforts to revitalize the neighborhood and promote the safety of its community members and maintains partnerships with a number of local businesses and organizations. Fairview Community Council projects include creating a Neighborhood Plan, developing a Department of Housing and Urban Development sanctioned Revitalization Strategy, as well as creating plans for historic preservation and parks and recreation, and strategies for dealing with the neighborhood’s homeless and chronic inebriate populations.
The collection includes meeting minutes (2008 April-2010 February); subject files, including information related to a resolution on chronic inebriate housing (2011-13) and Brother Francis shelter; resolutions (2010-2014); service contracts on capital projects (2012); plans for historic preservation and parks and recreation (2012); and plans for a proposed housing development that was proposed for the current location of Sitka Street Park, off of 15th Ave. (1982).
