There are 25 active community councils within the boundary of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. 

MSB Code recognizes Community Councils as voluntary, self-governing bodies that afford citizens an opportunity for maximum community involvement and self-determination. The purpose of community councils is to serve as a conduit for information and needs, flowing both ways, between citizens and the Matanuska-Susitna Borough (MSB) Assembly.

By design, Community Councils are intended to give:
  • the people a method to 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;
  • governmental agencies a method for receiving opinions, needs, desires, and recommendations of residents and groups;
  • local governing bodies an improved basis of decision-making and assignment of priorities for all capital improvements and governmental programs affecting community development and individual well-being.
Community Comprehensive Plans, drafted by residents within a council area with support from Borough Planning staff, are the primary way for citizens to communicate with policymakers about land use, vision for community growth, and service & infrastructure needs, now and in the future.
 
There are several community councils that are not active and many more that have vacancies. If you are interested in serving on your local community council, click the link below for more information about how to get involved!
 
Community Council Information


The Borough encourages the public to report maintenance issues they see on Borough roads and right-of-ways! 

 
Problem Reporter is an application to streamline the reporting of Borough road maintenance issues, such as snow removal, road sanding, or street sign repairs. This will make reporting issues easier than ever, assist in timely repairs, and allow individuals to stay informed about issue resolutions in their area.

The Borough can only respond to issues that occur on Borough maintained roads.  You will see these represented as RED lines on the Problem Reporter map. To report an issue on a state or city-maintained road, we have provided the necessary contact information on the website.
Report a Problem!

It has been a long and winding road to becoming a Planner II, but she is fortunate to be working on some incredible projects and with some inspiring people! Leda's focus has been on the 2024 Arctic Winter Games, as well as the Coordinated Human Services Transportation Plan Update, and supporting Glacier View 
Community Council in reviewing their community comprehensive plan. Leda firmly believes that every voice in our community counts and enjoys working with the Planning Division to find unique and creative solutions to grow community engagement in the process.

In her free time, Leda enjoys: dogs, overcast skies, hiking and spending time with friends and family!
