We Want to Hear from You

Whether you've participated in this planning effort before now or not, there are still plenty of opportunities to contribute your thoughts about the future of downtown Fairbanks. The original 2017 downtown survey (PDF): we have results to share.

In 2017, the Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB) mayor assembled a working group comprised of downtown-minded community members to lead this planning process. They have continued to meet regularly throughout this process and play an active role in the development of a new downtown plan.

As plan components are drafted, you'll have an opportunity to review and comment. When a complete plan is drafted, it will go through the public process of review and adoption, including work sessions and public hearings at the Planning Commission and the Assembly.
