Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The Alaska Department of Transportation is proposing some big changes to Muldoon Road, from 11th Ct. to Boundary Ave. The proposed changes will include replacement and addition of medians, re-striping of existing lanes and road resurfacing. These changes will mean that many residents will have to change where they turn onto and off of Muldoon Rd.
Tomorrow, Tuesday October 28th, a community meeting on the Muldoon Channelization project will be held in the Begich Middle School Multi-Purpose Room from 6pm-8pm. This open house is an opportunity to learn about the project, ask questions and voice your concerns about the current design plan.
These safety improvements aim reduce the high number of vehicle accidents along Muldoon Road, with funding provided by the federal Highway Safety Improvement Program.
I highly encourage you to attend the meeting. If you are not able to attend, information about the project and submitting public comment may also be found online here.
I was honored to be a part of the coin toss at last week’s semi-final football game between Bartlett and South. Congratulations to Bartlett on a great season!
Election Day is Tuesday, November 4th
Early in-person voting has already begun, but it’s not too late to apply for absentee electronic voting. Voters who wish to cast their ballot online or by-fax must submit this form no later than 5pm on Monday, November 3rd.
All completed ballots returned electronically must be received by the Division of Elections before 8pm on Tuesday, November 4th. Alternately, ballots may be returned by mail and must be postmarked on or before Election Day.
Online voters will need access to a computer and printer; those voting by fax should have their fax machine on and ready to receive their ballot packet. All absentee ballots require voters to obtain a witness signature to complete the ballot.
For more information about voting options call the Division of Elections toll free at 1-877-375-6508 or visit http://www.elections.alaska.gov/.
I drove around the district with Assemblyman Petersen and Gary Jones from the Muni to look at your suggestions for improvement projects
Improvements in Your Neighborhood
I recently asked what needs fixing in your neighborhood and received an enthusiastic response from all across East Anchorage. Consequently, when I toured the district with Municipal representatives last week, we used your recommendations to direct us to potential road, park, and safety improvement projects. This allowed us to identify projects to prioritize, both with existing and future capital funds.
With the looming fiscal challenge Alaska faces, not every project can be completed overnight. However, both driver and pedestrian safety and access to local parks remain priorities, as part of helping improve our community in East Anchorage.
Thank you very much for your suggestions and please feel free to share additional comments or ideas.
