Mountain View Community Plan Process
Last year, the Anchorage Community Land Trust, in partnership with the Mountain View Community Council, began the process of creating a 2014 Mountain View Neighborhood Plan. Work on the plan began in the fall of 2012 at the Mountain View Community Summit, an event held at Clark Middle School where over 150 MV residents gathered to dream, connect, and act. At the Community Summit, participants created a list of 39 goals for community safety, resident involvement, transportation, green spaces, and economic development in the neighborhood, and also created a list of action items to achieve those goals.
In 2013, focus groups were held with Clark Middle School students, program participants, business owners, and residents to hear their thoughts on land use in Mountain View. After the plan has been adopted by the Municipality, the Mountain View Community Council will lead residents, businesses, and partner organizations in working to achieve the goals described in the plan.
