Let's move some snow!

Welcome to the website for the Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) West Anchorage Snow Disposal Site Project. The MOA is considering new disposal sites for the snow collected in West Anchorage during winter months…

 

Site Selection

The project team has evaluated criteria for potential sites to be considered…

Why do we need this?

The existing location is leased from the State of Alaska and is located on land owned by the Anchorage International Airport (AIA). The current site no longer meets contracting requirements. 

 

Welcome

Welcome to the website for the Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) West Anchorage Snow Disposal Site Project. The MOA is considering a new disposal site for snow collected from West Anchorage streets during winter.

The Site Selection Study, which identifies the preferred new snow disposal site location, now available. Public feedback is important and will be considered during the final site selection process. Review the Draft Site Selection Study.

 

Purpose & Need:

The purpose of this project is to identify and select a future location for snow disposal in the Municipality of Anchorage.

The existing location is leased from the State of Alaska and is located on land owned by the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (AIA). This site no longer meets contracting requirements.

Draft Site Selection Study:

The Draft Site Selection Study is now available and a preferred location has been identified. As part of the site selection decision-making process, the public is invited to provide comments and feedback on the Draft Site Selection Study results and preferred site location.

All potential locations needed to meet the following criteria, which YOU helped to develop:

  • Size of 14 acres or more of vacant land
  • Centrally located to the current West Anchorage snow removal operations area to minimize haul times
  • Allowance for 24/7 operations
  • Allowance for operational lighting and sounds
  • Minimized impacts to residents
  • Economically viable development and operations cost
  • Access from a collector roadway or higher roadway classification
  • Able to be permitted for intended use (zoned appropriately)

The goal is to gain Municipal and Federal approval through the appropriate permitting processes when the final site is selected.

Project Status:

The Draft Site Selection Study is now available and a preferred location has been identified. As part of the site selection decision-making process, the public is invited to provide comments and feedback through November 20, 2020.

Public Outreach:

We want to hear from you!

The comment period for the Draft Site Selection Study is October 16 through November 20, 2020.

Public comments received will be considered by the project team and included as part of final site selection. Comments can be emailed to info@westanchoragesnow.com or submitted on this website.
