Make your voice heard, Cordova!

Last chance to contribute! Project closes at 11:59 p.m. tomorrow, November 3rd.

The USDA Forest Service, Alaska Region, has launched an interactive web-based map to collect public input on proposed outdoor recreation and infrastructure projects for 2022, and ideas for 2023 through 2025. Projects may include work on cabins, campgrounds, trailheads, trails, roads, bridges, parking areas, visitor centers, day-use areas, boat ramps, marine facilities, and picnic areas.

A website with general information and a link to an interactive map is available here. The online forum displays proposed projects for 2022. Each project has a comment section available for feedback.

To share an idea for a future project, public, partners, and others can click on the ranger district closest to their project idea and submit a comment detailing the idea for Forest Service staff to take into consideration.

"We look forward to hearing project feedback and ideas from the public and other stakeholders as we work together to improve our Alaska National Forests," said Regional Forester Dave Schmid. “We hope to build on work already being accomplished and find new, innovative ways to care for our land.”

Winter is coming here!

You should...
Dribble Water
Your pipes may be at risk for freezing. A common precautionary measure is to let water trickle from faucets. Because the water within the pipes is moving, it is resistant to becoming frozen. This simple prevention tactic could save you untold expense and cleanup effort.
Watch for Heavy Equipment
With the first snow of the season now arrived, sand trucks, plows, and loaders will now be on the streets. Please give them a wide clearance. If you can’t see the driver, they can’t see you! Don't let children (or fun-loving adults) play in the snow piles; it's very difficult for drivers to see them.
Clear City Rights-of-Way
Please remove any personal items in city rights-of-way—like the above “turtle”—so snowplows have room to work this winter!
Drive Carefully
Please slow down and exercise caution around the school crossing on Copper River Highway now that it is getting darker.
Call for Holiday Decorations for CCMC

Cordova Community Medical Center needs snowmen and snow-women to decorate the area behind the hospital where long term care residents, who have had limited exposure to holiday decorations this year, will be able to see them.

Any level of creativity is acceptable.  Please keep in mind that they will be outside and subject to the elements. Should you choose to use pallets for your design, CCMC has lots of them. 

They can be completed anytime between now and November 15th. Please contact Vivian Knop (, 424-8272) if you or your family are willing to help with this. 

Cordova remains at zero active cases as of today, Monday, 11/02/20. Good job, everybody! That said, let's not get complacent: the City Health Alert status remains at Level 3: Watch. For the most up-to-date case counts, and more information, click the Dashboard above. And if you need a reminder of what 6 feet looks like, consult the caribou below!
