Let's move some snow!

Welcome to the website for the Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) West Anchorage Snow Disposal Site Project. The MOA conducted a thorough site selection and evaluation process to identify a future snow disposal location for snow removed from West Anchorage streets during winter months. The identified site selected for the MOA West Anchorage Snow Disposal Site is located in Connor’s Bog.

The next step in the process is the permitting phase.

Welcome

Permitting and design work are now underway for the Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) West Anchorage Snow Disposal Project.

The MOA is grateful for the community’s feedback throughout the  site selection process. The MOA selected the Connor’s Bog site after a thorough evaluation that included extensive public comment and involvement.

During fall 2021, the project team will hold additional public meetings focused on the design and permitting phases of this project. These meetings are intended to keep the community informed and continue gathering feedback from interested citizens.

Additional information on upcoming public meetings may be found below in the Public Outreach section.

 

Final Site Selection Study

 

This project would not have been successful without your participation and feedback. Summaries of the Phase One and Phase Two public outreach and feedback received are also available for PDF download.

Project Status

Permitting and design work are underway for this project. A Draft Design Study Report is now available in the Project Documents section below.

We will be seeking stakeholder and community feedback on the proposed design through the end of 2021 and in early 2022. All upcoming public meetings will be posted in the events calendar.

Permitting Requirements and Information

The wetlands located in the project area were reviewed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who determined that the selected project site of Connor’s Bog is not subject to federal jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act. The approved jurisdictional determination documents can be found in the Project Documents section below.

The municipal permitting and zoning requirements include:

  • Comprehensive Plan Amendment
  • Rezoning from Transitional (TR) to Public Lands and Institutional (PLI)
  • Conditional Use and Land Reclamation Permits
  • Title 21 snow site design waivers
  • Municipal use of designated parkland for road access (approximately 0.2 acre)

Additional permitting will include MOA Building Safety permits and utility agreements. 

Project Schedule

Next steps include permitting, preliminary design, and utility coordination.
