The municipality has put forward a proposal in Assembly Ordinance 2020-66, which includes purchasing America’s Best Value Inn (4360 Spenard Road) to be used for:
  • Transitional housing with supportive services for individuals and families experiencing homelessness and those individuals with special needs to prepare for and obtain permanent housing within 24-months.
  • 24-hour a day, 7 days a week programmatic assistance or services for self-sufficiency skills to its tenants, and may provide services such as, but not limited to, on-site assistance in learning independent living skills (shopping, cooking, financial budgeting, preparing for job interviews, preparing resumes, and similar skills), and referral to off-site education and employment resources (GED completion, job training, computer training, employment services, and the like) to assist the tenants in becoming financially self-sustaining.
The SCC does not have a position on this proposal. The SCC hosted an informational meeting 7/8 to learn more about the proposal and share info with residents. You can view it on our website

The Municipality of Anchorage's proposal is to purchase four buildings for the proposed uses of:

  • America's Best Value Inn - Transitional housing for individuals and families experiencing homelessness
  • Golden Lion Hotel - Substance abuse and addiction treatment services for all Anchorage residents
  • Former Alaska Club Midtown @ 630 E. Tudor - Shelter and Day Engagement Center
  • Bean's Cafe- Shelter and Day Engagement Center
The issues around homelessness and treatment services are ongoing in our community. We want to hear from you to find out more about what topics you care about most. 

Thank you, 
Spenard Community Council Executive Board
