ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Chugach State Park Management Plan will be taking public comment for two more weeks.
The plan details proposed changes to the park, like additional parking lots, expanding existing lots, and creating a 2 1/2 mile-long road to connect the Upper Huffman Trailhead with the Glen Alps Trailhead.
Some Anchorage residents who use the park are concerned about the plan. Barbara Winkley is one of them. She says there are other ways to address the parking problem at Glen Alps and development of park land is not the answer, and that the plan is expensive and destructive.
"That road will be visible from the valley with the mountain-tops, and I feel this plan is going through without a lot of public input," said Winkley.
The public comment period was extended to Oct. 31st. In order to submit a comment, visit the park's website.
The superintendent of the park was not available for comment about the plan.
