Beginning July 1st, 2013, the Fairbanks North Star Borough will be implementing a revised fee structure for distribution of GIS and Property Tax Roll data. Fees have been in existence for years for distribution of data by DVD or the Borough's FTP site. A new fee structure will be added for distribution of data by USB drive.

An enforcement mechanism for payment of fees has not previously existed for data obtained from the ftp site; hence much data has been obtained for free. A significant change starting July 1st, 2013 is the GIS and Property Tax Roll data distributed via the FTP Site will only be available as part of password secured zip file(s). The password will be provided upon payment of fees, and will be changed when the data is updated.

Please download the required purchase form and deliver or mail form with appropriate fee to the address on the form.
