The city’s Draft West Anchorage District Plan recommends a “Comprehensive Land Exchange” that would give the Airport Pt. Woronzof Park & a section of the Coastal Trail/Greenbelt for Airport Development. The public said “NO!” in 2008 — it’s time to say “NO!” again!
Please tell the Assembly you're against giving limited west-side park space (Pt. Woronzof Park) to the airport. It seems like the airport is just using scare tactics to try and get what they want: land near the coastal trail south of Pt. Woronzof. When Pt. Woronzof Park was dedicated as parkland, it was described as one of Anchorage's premier urban wilderness areas. Join us in keeping it that way.
Hands off our Coastal Trail and no land trade of Point Woronzof Park!
Oppose the recommendation for a proposed “Comprehensive Land Exchange” that would trade to the Airport Municipally-dedicated parkland (Pt. Woronzof Park) or any other Municipally-owned land that provides EXISTING greenbelt/buffering for the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail west of the Airport. Acquisition of this land by the airport would allow destruction of valuable Municipal parkland/recreational areas for the development of another North-South Runway or other major airport industrial operations.
