Alaska Housing Markets In 1990: Report and Research SummaryAt the beginning of the new decade, Alaska urban housing markets appear to have largely ended their four-year slide. Population and home sales are up. Residential vacancies and mortgage defaults are down. This report is one of a series prepared for the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation (AHFC) on the economy and housing markets of urban areas of Alaska. It reviews the housing markets in Alaska's major urban centers and discusses the outlook for 1990 and 1991. The geographic areas covered include Anchorage, Fairbanks, and the Mat-Su Valley.
The DOD Economic Analysis of Eielson Realignment Is Seriously FlawedThe DOD analysis of the economic impact on Fairbanks of the realignment of Eielson air base concludes that the net loss of 2,940 military and civilian jobs at Eielson would result in the loss of 1,770 additional jobs in the Fairbanks MSA (Fairbanks North Star Borough). This would represent a loss of 8.6% of all jobs, based on an estimate of 54,469 total jobs in the Borough. The loss of 8.6% of all jobs represents the 4th largest hit as a percentage among all 234 regions that would by effected by implementation of the BRAC recommendations. Netting out those bases recommended for closure, and thus available for redevelopment, the negative economic impact on Fairbanks would be exceeded in only one other region (Clovis, New Mexico).
Propane from the North Slope: Could It Reduce Energy Costs in the Interior?Could propane from the North Slope cut energy costs in Fairbanks and other Interior communities that heat buildings or generate electricity with fuel oil or naphtha? The Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority (ANGDA) thinks it could....We analyzed how fuel prices in Fairbanks might compare, under those assumptions and at different crude oil prices. We estimated the price of propane delivered to Fairbanks, the wholesale price of fuel oil in Fairbanks, and the price of the naphtha that Golden Valley Electric Association (the Fairbanks utility) burns to generate electricity. These aren’t prices residential customers would pay. The propane price doesn’t include costs of storing and distributing propane in Fairbanks, and we tried to make the fuel oil price comparable to that. This analysis is intended just to show relative fuel prices, given ANGDA’s assumptions.
