Greetings! Effective August 1st, 2016, DMVs across Alaska will begin switching the format of temporary cards – we will be phasing out the color cards on special paper to black and white cards on standard paper. Your expired hard card will be returned to you (excluding any type of permit, CDL or J-restricted) with a special hole-punch and connected to the new temporary card. The new black & white temporaries are a cost saving measure & are a common best practice seen at DMVs across the country.
Will the new temporary IDs, etc. be accepted at banks, TSA, etc?
The temporary licenses are for driving purposes only. The black & white temporaries are not intended to be used for identification purposes, including the ID temps. DMV has reached out to law enforcement, TSA, and other agencies with the new procedures, however, customers are advised to have another form of ID to use. If you have concerns you should contact the agency specifically to see what they will accept as a form of identification.
Contact your local DMV or the Police Department if you have any questions.
A special meeting of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission will be held on Tuesday, July 26th at 6:00 pm in Community Room A in the Cordova Center. On the agenda is the 2016 Christmas Bazaar. Be sure to attend!
We like pets but when visiting City Hall, the Chamber of Commerce, CCMC or other city owned facilities, please leave Fido at home or in the car. The city has instituted a "No Pet" policy for all city owned buildings. Certified service animals are excepted.
This summer will probably see the presence of one or more asphalt contractors in Cordova here to perform large and small paving projects, ranging from city streets to parking lots to alleys to residential driveways and lots in between.
Please be reminded that any work on any City street, shoulder, parking lot, alley way, real estate, or property of any kind is not allowed without a completed City ROW Right of Way Permit approved by the City Public Works Department.
In the past, too many homeowners have regraded and paved their driveways and encroached onto City property without the City’s permission resulting in problems with local drainage and/or safety shoulders. This has necessitated re-work by the Streets Department at city taxpayers’ expense. By obtaining an approved Permit to work on City property, all citizens can help us avoid these paving-related construction issues and additional costs to taxpayers.
For further information, please contact Bill Howard at Streets/City Shop at 424-6335 or Rich Rogers at 424-6231 or the City Planning office.
The City of Cordova Planning Department would like to remind everyone that a Building Permit is required for the erection, construction, establishment, moving, alteration, enlargement, repair, or conversion of ANY building or structure located within the City.
Building Permits are required in order to ensure that all projects adhere to zoning requirements, height requirements, setbacks, minimum lot size, and permitted uses which vary throughout the City.
If you have any questions, please contact the Planning Department at 424-6220, or visit click the LINK.
