- ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Cook Inlet Housing Authority has plans for the Spenard neighborhood of Anchorage. The Anchorage Daily News reported Wednesday that the housing agency intends to transform the neighborhood, now known mostly for its lively nightlife, modest motels and restaurants. The agency already has acquired the old PJs strip club at the corner of 36th Avenue and Spenard Road, and it is negotiating to buy property across the street where an auto repair shop now sits. The housing authority intends to kick off the transformation of the area by cleaning up the area and building affordable housing. The Legislature approved a $1.9 million grant to pay for the cleanup. The cleanup likely will be completed in 2013, with construction on housing units to begin in 2014.
