Rogers Park Community Council
including Anchor Park, College Village, Woodside East and Rogers Park
Our next meeting is
Monday, September 11, 2023
In person at the
Rogers Park Elementary School Library
and via Zoom
The Municipality of Anchorage develops an annual citywide list of Capital Improvement Projects (CIP) that includes road, drainage, trail, and park projects, predominately on Municipal property (not State of Alaska property). The list is prepared and ranked by the Project Management and Engineering and Parks and Recreation departments based on input from community councils, the Assembly, mayor, and individual residents.
Anchorage Metropolitan Area Transportation Solutions (AMATS) has a somewhat similar process for road, trail, and other projects on State of Alaska property.
The Rogers Park Community Council (RPCC) contribution to the CIP process starts with RPCC members nominating projects using this form. In the spring of 2023, council members will vote to rank the projects, and then our ranked list will be submitted to the Municipality and AMATS. The RPCC’s CIP committee manages this process.
Your CIP Committee,
We hope to post a video of the presentation soon. Former Rogers Park resident Dr. John Fournelle on the history of the Rogers Park subdivision given on April 24th, 2021. Find out more about the beginings of this subdivision came to be and some of the backstory of the neighborhood.

Welcome to the Rogers Park Community Council
The Rogers Park Community Council is bounded by Chester Creek on the north, 36th Avenue on the south, New Seward Hwy. on the west, Lake Otis Boulevard on the east, and also includes Anchor Park Subdivision to the northeast of the Lake Otis-Northern Lights Boulevard Intersection.
The Council’s purpose is to provide a direct and continuing means of citizen participation in local affairs. The council provides a forum for introduction and discussion of local and city issues and advises the Anchorage Assembly and other groups regarding issues that affect its geographic area. The Rogers Park Community Council is affiliated with the Anchorage Federation of Community Councils. Any resident or property owner within in the boundaries of the council is a member.
The Rogers Park Community Council’s monthly meeting is held at 7:00 PM every second Monday of the month at the BP Energy Center, 1014 Energy Drive. Our representatives on the Anchorage Assembly often attend the meetings and make brief presentations, offering you an opportunity to speak with them directly.
People come to Community Council meetings because they are interested in what's going on in their community. About 20 to 50 people regularly attend meetings, depending on the issues on the agenda. Often people attend their first meeting because of something happening in their neighborhood that they are concerned about, be it new construction, traffic issues, nuisance behavior by neighbors, or road construction.
The meetings are an easy, comfortable place to communicate with community leaders, legislators, and neighbors about how to make the Rogers Park area an even better place to live, work, and play. It's an opportunity to just sit and listen for an hour and a half, once a month, learning things you would never know otherwise, and often protecting your investment in your home or business. No commitment is required, and it is free!
