The Trails Commission is inactive at this time.

The KPB Trails Commission is a panel of nine volunteers from various borough communities.  The Commission was established in 1997 for the purpose of planning and developing expanded trail access throughout the borough for transportation and recreation purposes.  The panel is advisory to the Borough Assembly and Planning Commission on matters involving trails.

Commissioners are appointed by the mayor and confirmed by the Assembly.  Two Commissioners are appointed from each of four geographic regions in the borough, and one appointee represents the Planning Commission.  Terms of appointment are generally three years.   Trails Commissioners are advocates for all trail users in their communities -- they do not represent specific user groups.  You can read about the purpose and organization of the Commission in Chapter 2.75 (pdf) of the KPB Code of Ordinances.

Serving on the Commission is not the only way you can help to improve trails and public access in the borough.  Some important ways you can help are:

  • Join a local trail group that suits your interests
  • Comment on borough, state land use actions -- like right-of-way or easement vacations, road reconstruction plans, land classifications, Chugach Forest Plans, Kenai Wildlife Refuge Plans, State Parks Plans, etc.
  • Think about trails in your community.  What would improve the trail situation in your neighborhood?  What trails would you like to see in the future?  Come to the Trails Commission meetings, or send us your suggestions.
