Community council, advisory board meetings set for September

Thursday, September 6, 2018 - 15:37

Summer’s over and local boards and community councils are gaveling back into action.

Most local advisory groups elect to skip meetings in June, July and August due to members being busy, but September brings a full return starting with the Thursday, Sept. 6, meeting of the South Fork Community Council. The meeting at 7 p.m. at Eagle River High School on Yosemite Drive is the first of five area council meetings scheduled this month, according to information posted on the Federation of Community Councils homepage.

On Wednesday, Sept. 12, the Birchwood Community Council meets at the Beach Lake Chalet (17611 S. Birchwood Loop) and the Eagle River Valley Community Council meets at Gruening Middle School (9601 Lee Street). Both meetings are at 7 p.m.

The Eagle River Community Council meets Thursday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m. in the Eagle River Town Center Building at 12001 Business Boulevard.

The following Thursday (Sept. 20), the Chugiak Community Council is scheduled to meet at the Elsie Oberg Center (18606 Old Glenn) in Chugiak.

The federation website includes meeting information as well as homepages for the individual councils, where meeting documents are posted. Community councils serve as advisory bodies to the Anchorage Assembly. The federation will hold its monthly meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 6 p.m. at 1057 W. Fireweed Lane in Anchorage.
