The answer to this question can get quite case-specific. But, the following is some generalized information that is intended to give some initial direction to get you started in the right direction:
- If the alleged violation is occurring on a road or within a road right-of-way inside a Road Service Area (RSA), contact Rural Services. If it is occurring outside of an RSA or if the encroachments spilling into the road are connected to a "junkyard" (visit "What qualifies as a junkyard?"), contact Code Enforcement.
- If the alleged violation is occurring in a trail easement, call the trails coordinator at 907-459-7401. If you are not sure whether or not a trail easement exists, call Subdivision Platting at 907-459-1260. When ready, submit a Complaint Form (PDF). Please note that existing trails may or may not be legally established across private property and the Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB) might not have jurisdiction.
- If the alleged violation is occurring on a private easement, the FNSB has no jurisdiction.
