Community councils are independent, not-for-profit, voluntary, self-governing associations composed of residents 16 years of age or older, property owners, business owners and nonprofit organizations who meet the qualifications for membership as outlined in the municipal code chapter 2.40. Community councils are created by the Anchorage Municipal Charter to “afford citizens an opportunity for maximum community involvement and self-determination.”
The purpose of the council is to provide a direct and continuing means of citizen participation in local affairs. The council is intended to:
- Give local people a method by which they can work together for expression and discussion of their opinions, needs and desires in a manner that will have an impact on their community’s development and services; and
- Provide governmental agencies a method for receiving opinions, needs, desires and recommendations from residents and groups; and
- Offer local governing bodies an improved basis for decision-making and assignment of priorities for all programs affecting community development and individual well-being.
The Council has a policy and practice of open membership and meetings to encourage participation of persons from all segments of the community. Any person 16 years of age or older whose primary place of abode is within the council’s geographical boundaries is eligible for membership. Residents, non-resident property owners, business owners and nonprofit organizations as described in municipal code chapter 2.40 with a physical premise located inside the council’s geographical boundaries are eligible for membership.
