Scenic Foothills Community Council Meeting October 5th

Scenic Foothills Community Council (SFCC) will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday, October 5th, in the auditorium at Wayland Baptist University, 7801 East 32nd Avenue. Access via Old Muldoon Road off 36th Avenue, west of Muldoon Road.

The Municipality of Anchorage presented plans to build a transportation facility for 120 school buses next to Totem Theatre’s parking lot. Angry neighbors from Muldoon and Scenic Foothills turned out in droves to oppose the plan at Northeast Community Council September 21. NECC passed a resolution to oppose the plan.

Mayor Withdraws Plans for 120 buses beside Totem Theatre

The Anchorage School Board was slated to vote on a resolution in support of it September 25, but a few hours before the meeting started, Mayor Ethan Berkowitz withdrew the plan. He said they will work with the district to find another location. More upset neighbors turned out to testify anyway, “just in case.”

The next meeting regarding the planned development at Tudor and Elmore, where the Anchorage School District’s transportation facility is now, will be at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 27, at the Permit Center, 4700 Elmore Road. Making room for development is driving the bus facility from its current location.

The Municipality of Anchorage has chosen not to present the school bus plan that was withdrawn at the Scenic Foothills Community Council meeting October 5th. Moving the “bus barn” will still be a discussion topic. We dodged a bullet, but we need to make sure the gun is not loaded and pointed toward Scenic Foothills.

Please come! We have plenty of room and everyone is welcome. See the Scenic Foothills Community Council website for more information.

Chanshtnu Muldoon Park named, Phase 2 funded

It’s official! The Anchorage Assembly approved a name – Chanshtnu Muldoon Park – for our community park July 25, 2017. Chanshtnu (pronounced CHANSH-nu), meaning “grass creek,” is the Dena’ina word for Chester Creek, which winds through the park at 1301 Muldoon Road.

The U.S. Department of the Interior and the National Park Service announced a grant of $750,000 to the city toward development of Phase 2 of the park in mid-July.

Ribbon cutting for Phase 1 – Muldoon Town Square – with an all-inclusive, destination playground, and future home of Muldoon Farmers Market, is planned for 4 p.m. September 16 at the annual Spirit of Muldoon picnic.
