South Townsite/Egloff Drive

Realignment of Egloff Drive has been funded. The road upgrade will provide access to the existing buildings and on into the  South Townsite Area. Projects currently underway in the Girdwood South Townsite area are:

  • The re-plat  of the Heritage Land Bank land is complete  (the bulk of the South Townsite area) which will provide an improved opportunity for land development.
  • The Update of the Girdwood South Townsite Area Master Plan is complete and went before the Planning & Zoning Commission gaining approval. Input from many municipal agencies was considered in the final rewrite of the South Townsite Area Master Plan.    DOWL/HKM worked with the Girdwood South Townsite Committee, the Heritage Land Bank, and the Municipal Planning Department to accomplish this task.
  • Realign Egloff Drive extension:  Upon completion and approval of the South Townsite Area Master Plan, realignment of  the Egloff Drive extension will begin. Design of the roadway will incorporate community desires expressed through the Girdwood South Townsite Area Plan. The Egloff Drive extension will improve access to the fire station, library, and the northernmost tracts of Heritage Land Bank land.
