Survey: Capital Improvement Project Priorities, FY 2018 & beyond

Your input is requested by May 24th to guide our Scenic Foothills Community Council in setting priorities for future capital funding requests for streets, storm drains, parks trails, etc. The Municipality has provided a list of proposed capital improvement projects in three funding categories: (Anchorage Project Management & Engineering, State of Alaska, Anchorage Parks & Recreation). Funding is via bonding and state and federal grants.

Please look over the list and take a brief (3-question) online Capital Improvement Projects Survey to rank these items in order of importance. There is a place to suggest other projects if you think they are more urgently needed. This will guide the SFCC board in setting funding priorities for the next fiscal year and beyond.

The survey allows one set of answers per computer. The survey may also be completed with mobile devices. The last question requests name, street address and e-mail address to help update Scenic Foothills Community Council mailing lists. Data won’t be shared or sold.

If unable to complete the survey online, please send name, street address and e-mail address to for alternate method.
