What makes a community great? Is it new development, great schools, or perfect roads? No it's individuals, the people, the families who make a community truly great. Starting January 21, 2009, the borough began airing a TV commercial. The commercial addresses the issues of growth and change in the Mat-Su with a a clear message, "we are growing, we are changing and YOU can help." You, me, each one of us, is an essential part of that message. Without participation from the citizens of the Mat-Su, we cannot grow and change into the community we need to be. Below are links to opportunities throughout the borough where citizens can get involved and learn more. Click here to view the commercials
