JUNEAU, Alaska — The fastest-growing region in Alaska is planning for a new town site, but some local residents question the location and whether this is a pie-in-the-sky idea.
The Matanuska-Susitna Borough is working on a conceptual plan for Point MacKenzie, near the new Goose Creek prison, that calls for a plaza, parks, school, air strip and a mix of housing that includes high-density neighborhoods. Planning is in the early stages but is aimed at getting ahead of the continued growth the borough expects to see, borough chief of planning Lauren Driscoll said.
