How does each department identify and prioritize projects?

How does each department identify and prioritize projects?

  • Each department maintains a list of capital project needs.
  • Throughout the year, each department adjusts its needs list to delete projects completed and to add new projects.
  • New projects are identified through: a) municipal or state agency comments; b) Community Council recommendations; c) calls from elected officials, and; d) suggestions from the public.
  • Each Department uses standard criteria for evaluating, scoring, and ranking all projects in their department.  For example, PM&E uses 15 criteria established to evaluate transportation projects.

Please take a closer look at Williwa Ave. the road is destroyed, terrible to drive on it, it needs paved! This road is bringing my property value down.

Spenard Community Council has identified Chugach Way from Arctic Boulevard to Spenard Road as its number one Council priority for traffic calming. PM&E should strategize rebuilding and repurposing this road way to include pedestrian facilities, road realignment, lighting improvements and changes to allow Fish Creek to flow beside and under the roadway outside of culverts (daylighting).

Spenard Community Council has identified West 45th Avenue from Taft Street to Northwood Drive as the number three Council priority for traffic calming. PM&E should strategize rebuilding and repurposing this roadway to include pedestrian facilities, road realignment, lighting improvements and changes to allow Fish Creek to flow beside and under the roadway outside of culverts (daylighting).

Planning documents and feasibility studies should be funded with the goals of removing Fish Creek from culverts and storm drainage from Lake Otis to Cook Inlet. Phase I of new creek pathways should include the flood control lake at Cuddy Park and a Right of Way along 40th Avenue to Arctic Blvd. and then continuing West along a newly developed creek bed between Wilshire Avenue and Chugach Way to intersect with archival creek bed at Chugach Way.
