A Dynamic Neighborhood in a Changing City


Welcome to Fairview, a dynamic neighborhood in the heart of Anchorage that is constantly evolving. As one of Anchorage's original community councils, the Fairview Community Council has been working hard, with the support of the Municipality of Anchorage, the Federation of Community Councils, the Anchorage Assembly, and partner organizations, to revitalize and improve the neighborhood.


Over the last decade, we have seen tremendous improvements in Fairview, including a new elementary school, upgraded rental properties, new construction of homes and condos, and improved commercial facilities. This transformation has re-positioned Fairview as a revitalizing neighborhood and made it a solid choice for buyers and renters seeking quality housing at competitive prices in the Anchorage market.


We recognize and celebrate this success, but we know that the work is not done. The reality is that transition in older neighborhoods is always tenuous, and it is critical that local leaders, working with the Community Council, make a conscious decision to reinforce what is working effectively in Fairview and to minimize or even eliminate what could undermine the neighborhood.


Fairview is one of Anchorage's historic four neighborhoods (Fairview, Downtown, South Addition and Government Hill), and we are proud of the rich, vibrant, and diverse community that we have built. In Fairview, "People Make The Difference," and we invite you to join us in making a difference. Help us build a brighter future for Fairview and be a part of our dynamic and thriving community.
