Historical Preservation Commission
The goal of the Historical Preservation Commission is to Promote and Maintain Cultural Heritage and Historic Integrity within the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and to cultivate Economic Benefits through Historic Preservation.
To do this we protect significant historic and prehistoric resources, material remains, writing and oral histories within the Borough for the benefit of those in the present and future.
Our Four Objectives:
- Identification of Cultural Resources
- Evaluation of Cultural Resources
- Registration of Cultural Resources
- Protection of Cultural Resources
The Historical Preservation Commission (HPC) meets regularly and this schedule is set at the first HPC meeting of each calendar year (as soon as the HPC determines this schedule it will be posted here). The Commission meets in various locations throughout the Borough. Meetings are advertised on this website and the Clerk’s Office website, in the Frontiersman newspaper, and are open to the public.
The next regularly scheduled HPC meeting will be on Thursday, December 13, 6:00-8:00 PM, at the Borough's DSJ Building, Lower Level Conference Room, 350 E. Dahlia Ave., Palmer AK 99645.
