Open Discussion Concerning Chugiak-Eagle River Growth

“Los Anchorage,” Alaska, has a problem. Like Los Angeles, California, Anchorage is located in a geological bowl surrounded by mountains and ocean. Los Angeles County is in a large bowl of sand with sandy hills--the largest flat basin opening onto the Pacific Ocean. Anchorage is in a smaller bowl of clay and silt, surrounded by rugged mountains. Land suitable for building homes in Anchorage is therefore limited.
