Big Lake CityFrom the Notice: Big Lake and Houston Petitions


Pasted below is the link to the filing of two separate petitions with the Local Boundary Commission to incorporate Big Lake as a second class city and to annex territory to the City of Houston. These two petitions affect the same boundaries and have been consolidated by the LBC chair under 3 AAC 110.430. The informational session, schedule, departmental reports, hearing, decisional meeting or other procedures will be consolidated.
The link to the State of Alaska, Online Public Notices site is: Notice of Filing a Petition With the Local Boundary Commission (LBC) for the Incorporation of the City Of Big Lake and the Annexation of Territory to the City of Houston

I have arranged for a page with the petitions and other petition materials to be placed on the LBC Current Petitions page, but due to our IT staff availability, this may take a while. If you would like information regarding either petition, or if you have any questions, you are always welcome to contact me at 907-269-4587 or Brent Williams at 907-269-4559, or via email at

Thank you,

I'm wanting to hear the for and against this. What are the benefits/downfalls of being a city?

I think they're going to mail out a ballot.

There are still many items that need to be addressed, and you still have time to comment directly to the LBC via the links in these articles, or to the petitioner. Or you could post here, and others can agree or argue. That's what this space is for: a community discussion.
