Talkeetna Community Council Inc.:
Talkeetna is a census-designated place and is unincorporated. An unincorporated area is a region of land that is not governed by its own local municipal corporation, Talkeetna is governed by the Matanuska-Susitna Borough instead. Talkeetna has a Community Council which provides the residents of Talkeetna a platform for input and participation in their local government and affairs. The Talkeetna Community Council weighs these inputs against the law (SPUD), the Talkeetna guidelines (Comprehensive Plan and Management Plans) and the community consensus (TCCI meetings) and advises the Mat-Su Borough accordingly. 

From the bylawsThe purposes of the TCCI are civic, namely: To provide a direct and continuous means of participation in local government and affairs as authorized by and defined in the Mat-Su Borough Code MSB 2.76, and to provide for implementation of the goals of the Talkeetna Comprehensive Plan.

The Talkeetna Community Council has several standing sub-committees: Revenue Sharing Committee, Talkeetna Parks Advisory Committee (TPAC), Talkeetna Recycling Works, Play ground Committee, Skate Park Committee. Temporary sub-committees are formed and dissolved when subjects ask for more time than available within the regular TCCI meetings. 

The TCCI has besides the bylaws, several procedures

Every November there is a Board of Directors election. Interested candidates can fill out a Declaration of Candidacy form when interested to serve on the board.

Talkeetna Community Guidelines and Laws:

Talkeetna Special Land Use District (SPUD): Talkeetna has a Special Land Use District commonly known as the SPUD. The SPUD is an enforceable set of rules under the Mat-Su Borough's jurisdiction. The SPUD document can be found on the SPUD page.

Talkeetna Comprehensive Plan: The Talkeetna Comprehensive Plan is a compilation of information, projections, and policies which is intended as a general guide for the development of our community. The intent of the comprehensive plan is to articulate the local population's expectations and public interest as they relate to community development so that future community growth can be consistent with these desires. 

Alaska state statue and Matanuska-Susitna Borough code require comprehensive planning. Once comprehensive plans are adopted, they become instrumental in influencing public and private policy decisions. The Comprehensive Plan can be found on the Comprehensive Plan page.

Talkeetna Parks and Lakes Management Plans: Management Plans supersede the recommendations of the Talkeetna Comprehensive Plan. Lake Management plans are most often requested by lakefront property owners because increase development or the provision of new public access brings about increased lake and river usage and corresponding increase in user conflict. The management plans can be found in the Management Plans folder.

Historical Design Guidelines: The Historical District Design Guidelines provides guidelines for those who want to build, modify or develop in a way that will preserve the historical nature of Beautiful Downtown Talkeetna. It can be found on the Historic District page.
