Opposition to the Sylvan Gravel Pit
At the June 9th, 2021 Meadow Lakes Community Council meeting there was discussion of Sylvan Gravel Pit. Secretary Fisher gave an overview of the concerns expressed by the community over the pit, and presented the letter of opposition which after more discussion the Council approved by a vote of the membership and will send to the Borough.

Comments of opposition included:

  • The inadequacy of Sylvan to handle the traffic
  • The heavy equipment on an inadequate road
  • The effect of traffic on the Parks/Sylvan intersection
  • The airport across from the proposed site, and the flight path directly over the pit
  • The devaluation of homes in the area
  • The 24 hour a day/7 days a week schedule proposed in the CUP
  • The need for strong compliance monitoring
  • The homeowner's well on Knox Drive abuts that pit, with potential contamination of the water
  • Noise, dust, odor which will be generated by the operation
  • Destruction of wildlife and the natural environment
  • The gravel will largely be going into Anchorage and will not create revenue for the Borough.

MSB code states: (A)(1): In granting an administrative permit or a conditional use permit, the director or commission must make the following findings: (1) that the use is not inconsistent with the applicable comprehensive plan. Alex Strawn, Borough Planning Director, was asked to speak as to the ability of the Borough to require compliance by a mining operator to the provisions of the CUP. Alex stated that the Borough has the tools to monitor and require compliance.

Notice of Parks Highway Construction changes

From Todd Smith, Alaska DOT Project Engineer
The traffic pattern is changing on Meadow Lakes Loop. Be advised that the project is working to shift traffic onto the newly constructed Meadow Lakes Loop roadway. The new Parks Highway / Meadow Lakes Loop intersection will serve travelers wanting to head either north or south on the Parks Highway. The existing intersection (at the Holiday Station) of the Parks Highway / Meadow Lakes Loop will become a right-in / right-out only (no left turning movements will be allowed).
- Parks Highway traffic will also be shifted onto the recently paved northbound lanes. The Parks Highway traffic pattern will remain a two-lane / two-way configuration at this time.
- Please take extra caution when traveling through the new traffic patterns. Follow the posted signage and instructions from the flaggers.
Note: The light has not been installed at this intersection and the Parks, but Todd tells me that they are working on it.
