The City and surrounding areas have seen significant growth and development since Soldotna first incorporated as a city in the 1960's, but the corporate boundaries have remained essentially unchanged. There are now areas with dense residential and commercial development inside the City, and extending beyond the city limits in all directions. In many ways, we are a cohesive community where businesses, residents, and land owners are living and working in close proximity. But depending on whether a person's home or business falls inside the corporate boundary of the City, the rules, regulations, and tax structure that impact our daily lives - and the government services we receive - are very different.
The images below are intended to provide an overview, topic by topic, of how things are different or ithe same for City residents, and residents of the Borough just outside City limits.
