Neighborhood beat: Junk, jobs and Station 3

Davis Park cleanup

If you have a few hours to lend to a neighborhood park, mark your calendar.

A community cleanup is set to take place at Mountain View’s Davis Park Saturday, Sept. 20 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event, organized by Rep. Geran Tarr, is part of a renewed push to keep local green spaces clean and safe. Last winter, ongoing problems with illegal camping in Davis Park prompted several Mountain View residents to take a stand, and Tarr helped organize meetings with the Anchorage Police Department and another park cleanup earlier this year.

At a recent Mountain View Community Council meeting, Tarr said the Sept. 20 event is a way to spruce things up before the snow flies.

“There’s quite a bit of trash piling up back there,” she said. “Hopefully we’ll start this winter with things cleared out.”

Now hiring: Kriner’s Burgers & Pies

Mountain View’s newest burger joint is hiring — cooks, dishwashers, cashiers and more.

Kriner’s Burgers & Pies is preparing to open for business in the Glenn Square Shopping Center, just across the parking lot from the new Bass Pro Shops outpost. According to notices posted to the restaurant’s social media accounts, managers will be conducting interviews throughout the week from noon to 4 p.m.

Anyone interested in a position can apply in person at 3074 Mountain View Drive, suite 151.

Fire station relocation

Fire Station 3 is heading for a move, and representatives from the Anchorage Fire Department will attend the Airport Heights Community Council meeting to discuss the project Thursday.

The meeting is scheduled to take place Sept. 18 from 7-9 p.m. at Airport Heights Elementary School, according to AFD.

Station 3, currently located on Airport Heights Drive just south of the Glenn Highway, is set to move to a small tract of land next to the Alaska Native Cultural Charter School on Bragaw Street. At a Mountain View Community Council meeting earlier this year, fire officials said the move was prompted by costs and future expansion plans: It would cost less to build on a new site than expand the station at the current site. Plus, AFD said, the shift could help decrease response times in Mountain View.
