Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Plans > Fish Creek Management Plan

Plan Overview

The Fish Creek Management Plan guides the use of 43,300 acres of land managed by the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and by the Alaska Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The plan was originally adopted in 1984 by both the State and Borough (MSB Action Memorandum 84-244; DNR August 1984). Under the original plan, primary uses in the area were agriculture, fish and wildlife, watershed, and recreation. In addition significant areas were designated for forestry uses in conjunction with agriculture and for residential land sales on Borough land. An amendment to the plan concerning forestry uses was adopted March 1987 but expired in January 1995.

Plan Justification

This updated plan was prepared in 2007-2009, based on the conclusion that much had changed since the original plan was adopted more than 20 years ago.
