Downtown Plan

downtown icon​​How do you want downtown Fairbanks to grow?

Now is the time to get involved and help shape the future of our downtown community.​​

  A workshop will be held Wednesday, September 27, 2017 from 6-9 pm at the Westmark Gold Room.
Click here to download the September 27 meeting presentation.

Polling questions and a mapping exercise will help shape the boundary of the planning area and set priorities for types and locations of future development.    Mayor Kassel has assembled a working group comprised of ten downtown-minded community members to lead this planning process. They will meet throughout this yearlong process and will have an active role in the development of a new downtown plan. Cushman street picture

​This planning effort is anticipated to take a year. There will be at least three community meetings throughout the process and several surveys to botain your input. Community Planning and the working group will also be conducting on-on-one stakeholder interviews, photo walks and other means for participation and input. When a plan is drafted, it will go through the public process of review and adoption, including work sessions and public hearings at the Planning Commission and the Assembly.
