C.L.G. History

Certified Local Government Annual Reports - The Matanuska-Susitna Borough Historical Preservation Commission (HPC) was established by an Ordinance of the Assembly in April 1982. The MAT-SU Borough became a certified local government (CLG) in September of 1987, and is certified to carry out the purposes of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. We are pleased that the Mat-Su Borough was the first CLG in the great state of Alaska!
