Our area does not have essential infrastructure and basic services many other communities take for granted. Increasing public safety, Internet connectivity and transportation options, and reducing residents' cost of living will further stabilize and develop our region.
NWALT currently supports:
Construction of a road to Cape Blossom and a Cape Blossom Regional Port
Northwest Arctic Borough 5-year Public Safety Plan to build and maintain infrastructure while providing public safety officers in the villages
Bulk fuel and power system upgrades to improve electrical generation in communities such as Shungnak
Evaluating the feasibility of electrical interties between villages to improve the stability of electricty to villages, increase access to renewable energy sources and reduce the cost of electrical generation
Evaluating potential roads between villages that are interested
Collaboration with Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority to develop propane infrastructure
Development of NANA Regional Corporation Community Multipurpose Office Buildings
NWALT has successfully worked with the City of Buckland and other local and state agencies to bring Buckland to the brink of having a competed citywide water and sewer system.
