To better address the needs of its residents, this division coordinates communications and workshops between the Borough, general public, village corporations, regional corporations, private sector, the State of Alaska and the federal government. This enhances communications and the participation of the residents so they are better able to voice their concerns and needs directly to the responsible entity.
