Our leadership values community and responsible economic health in the environment we share in the Last Frontier. 



    “To promote and perpetuate the business, commercial, manufacturing, civic interests, general welfare and prosperity of the community and its environs; and the stimulation of public interest to these ends; to advance the industry of the said community; to develop a uniform public spirit, whereby, we may put forth maximum effort in the aid of our community, to make it more prosperous, more beautiful, and a better place in which to live.”

  • Welcome to Chugiak-Eagle River - The Most Livable and Unique Community in Alaska! Welcome to Chugiak-Eagle River - The Most Livable and Unique Community in Alaska!


    Nestled between two major river valleys in South-central Alaska, the Chugiak-Eagle River area is surrounded by beautiful Alaska wilderness.  The community is known statewide as the gateway to Chugach State Park, 495 thousand acres of rugged untouched terrain, and home to brown and black bear, moose, wolves, wolverine, lynx, fox, porcupine, beaver, spawning salmon, and a wide variety of birds including the majestic Bald Eagle.  It is a place where people have the unique opportunity to blend a community lifestyle, and reside in close proximity to an urban area. Additionally, residents and visitors enjoy the experience of pristine wilderness that exists right at the edge of the Last Frontier.

    Downtown Eagle River and business areas in Chugiak/Peters Creek have a variety of shops providing all the necessary amenities for a quality lifestyle.  Most all goods and services are available locally, but if you can't find that "special something," the downtown area of Anchorage is located approximately 12 miles to the south.  The community is connected with Anchorage via a modern fully lit six-lane highway which traverses natural and scenic military lands. To the North, approximately 20 miles away, The Mat-Su (Matanuska Susitna) Borough is full of adventures and home to Wasilla, Alaska’s fastest growing area.
