Matanuska-Susitna Borough

Plans > Susitna (Formerly Y) Community

Plan Overview

The Y Community Council Area has grown steadily over the last 15 years. It is likely this growth will continue. The area has extensive vacant private land, estimated at over 30,000 acres. The majority of this land is physically suited for development. There are currently over 4500 vacant subdivided lots in the community. The area’s attractive setting is increasingly drawing retirees and second home owners. Over the next 10 to 20 years, if the state economy stays healthy, recent growth trends for the Matanuska-Susitna Borough continue, and the Parks Highway continues to be improved, population in YCC Area could easily grow to double or triple its current size.
