Community Planning
​ ​​​​​​great-places.pngEvery year, the American Planning Association (APA) recognizes communities, people and places that represent good planning and positive community impact.  Fairbanks' Golden Heart Plaza is privileged to be among the spaces recognized as APA 2016 Great Public Spaces. According to APA's guidelines, Great Public Spaces must be at least 10 years old, promote social activities and reflect the local culture and history, among other things.  Congratulations to all those who work hard to make the Golden Heart Plaza a gathering place, and to those who come to gather and celebrate our great community!



Welcome to FNSB Community Planning!

Our department is charged with protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the community.  We're also responsible for protecting the largest investment you may ever make - your home and property - through tools like zoning, code enforcement, floodplain management, hazard mitigation planning, and the platting process. 
To accomplish these tasks in a fair and efficient manner, our department works with the guidance of several boards and commissions, including the Platting Board, Planning Commission, and Borough Assembly.​
