Our goal is to provide you with a home and service that makes you feel happy, safe and confident in your community. You are encouraged to make your house a home and enjoy the services and amenities offered at Eielson Air Force Base.
Each resident upon move-in is provided with the Resident Responsibility Guide (RRG). This guide is very similar to the former Air Force Housing Handbook and outlines expectations for all family housing residents. If you haven’t looked at it in a while, please take a few moments to review the RRG online. The RRG outlines the expectations for your home and community.
Ensuring your yard is free of clutter, trash and debris helps keep your community look clean and well maintained. Summer is approaching and we would like to encourage our residents to help us maintain our communities by cleaning up our surrounding areas.
Corvias offers convenient, curbside trash and recycling pick-up every week. In addition to curbside collection of household refuse, residents can also place bulk trash items at the curb on collection day. Please do not place your trash bin curbside until 6:30 a.m. the day of your scheduled pickup. Containers must be promptly returned to storage locations the same day. Household and bulk trash pickups are every Monday at French Creek, Moose Lake, Raven's Wood and Broadway communities and every Wednesday for Century Park and Galaxy Heights.
Thank you for choosing to live on-base and we appreciate your attention in keeping your community beautiful. It is our pleasure to provide your family a great place to call home.

Nothing celebrates America like the 4th of July, but using fireworks, firecrackers, or other pyrotechnics is prohibited on Eielson AFB. Only the installation commander can approve the use of fireworks on the base. If you want to celebrate the 4th of July at Eielson, you can attend the 4th of July Bash at Birch Lake. The event is July 4 from noon to 5 p.m. and includes free food, lots of beach fun and free watercraft and equipment rentals. The event will be located at Outdoor Recreation at Birch Lake. This free event is open to the Eielson AFB community.
The beginning of summer frequently means a weekend barbecue—a chance to enjoy warm weather with your Eielson community. You don’t want to spoil the fun with an accident at the grill, though. Keep these important safety tips in mind for a good time:
- Read the instructions. Whether you’re using a gas grill or one that burns charcoal, take some time to read the owner’s manual before starting your fire. Be sure you’re following the manufacturer’s safety guidelines.
- Always grill outdoors. This may seem elementary, but not everyone understands the need for proper ventilation and basic fire precautions. Your garage, or a tent, isn’t a safe location for a grill.
- Keep the grill stable. Check the surface you’re placing your grill on. You don’t want it to tip over unexpectedly. Also, take care to place it well away from the flow of people and pets, and especially children.
- Clean the grill first. Scrape off any grease or fat that can make a fire difficult to control.
- Stay close by. Never leave your grill alone while you’re talking, getting food, or enjoying yourself.
- Dispose of coals safely. Once you’re finished, douse the hot coals thoroughly, cover the grill, and wait at least 24 hours before emptying it. Never store coals in paper, wood, or plastic containers
Follow these simple rules and you’re guaranteed a delicious and fulfilling summer.
*Charcoal grills are under a burn ban until further notice. If you have any questions, please contact the Community Office. Thank you for your cooperation.
We need your help keeping our communities safe, attractive and uncluttered.
- The following rules outline how to help keep your community looking great.
- Trash containers should be cleared from the curb area on the day of pickup and placed in designated trash container storage areas, if there is one.

- Trailers, RVs, boats and other non-traditional forms of motorized transportation can only stay in housing areas for 48 hours.

Physical activity is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle for individuals and families. Thirty minutes of vigorous activity is recommended for adults while children need 60 minutes of play with moderate to vigorous activity level. The combination of physical activity and healthy food choices can help prevent a variety of diseases, maintain a healthy weight, build lean muscle and promote strong bone, muscle and joint development.
Individuals and families can incorporate fun and engaging activities into their everyday routine to help reach their physical activity goals. As summer approaches and you start to plan your summer vacations, think about planning an active vacation. Going to the beach? Instead of merely going to the beach, look for other activities such as fishing excursions, sports activities or biking along the beach you can include into your vacation time. Planning a trip to another city? Explore the city through a walking tour, skate at the local park, visit the zoo or amusement park. Camping is another active vacation that can challenge your physical activity while still having a great time relaxing.
There are many activities ranging from swimming, walking / running or biking you can do within your local community to help get you and your family active. For more information about the local activities click here.
