Situated in the southeastern end of Prince William Sound, the Alaskan City of Cordova is quickly emerging as one of America's best places to live, work, play, and visit.

As Cordova's busy season starts, so do parking demands on Main Street. Remember, there are parking time limitations on all Main Street curbside parking spots. There are ample signs informing motorist of this and the Cordova Police Department will be chalking tires of cars parked in timed spots. Save the cost and aggravation of a ticket. There's plenty of parking spots on the lower level of the Cordova Center, at the PD/Fire Station, and behind the old library. It is OK to walk a little and good for the heart and soul.
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.
Paving Cordova Roads 2016! The construction project to pave and create drainage on Nicholoff and Harbor Loop roads has begun.
The majority of work being done this week includes placing storm water catch basins and surveying for both gutters and sidewalks. Those orange stakes you see along Nicholoff and Harbor Loop Road are pretty important to the process. If they get moved or taken out, the process has to start all over! Please be respectful of the teams working hard to make the project go well and get done as soon as possible. After the catch basins are all in place, grading will start to prepare the surface for paving.
While 'normal' traffic routes to South Fill businesses and parking will be disrupted all access to businesses will be available at all times via detours if necessary.
Fishermen are encouraged to use the ramp at the North Fill as much as possible during this period. Please proceed with caution in the area and observe and obey traffic signs and detours.
Depending on the weather, this road work should be completed by early June. We apologize for the inconvenience but the end result will be a better road system in the South Fill area! We will work to update this announcement as often as possible! Thanks for your patience and understanding.
A friendly reminder from the City of Cordova that all paid contractors, freelance service providers, and other independent suppliers are required to purchase a City business license, collect sales tax and remit the tax to the City on a quarterly basis.
Business owners are strongly encouraged to ask all service providers for their proof of license. If you have contracted someone from out of town, please direct them to City Hall to get their local business license. Call 424-6200 for questions.
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.
Now available for the citizens of Cordova, a convenient, new drive-by drop box for utility payments! The drop box is located in the lower level parking lot of the Cordova Center. Enter into the parking lot and drive halfway through the loop, where you will find the payment box easy to access from the driver’s side. No need to even get out of your car!
The drop box across the hall from the police station is no longer available for payments. If you have questions, concerns or comments, please contact the utility office at 424-6212. Thanks for your patience and cooperation!
