ANCHORAGE - A piece of land overlooking the ocean in Anchorage is the subject of an ownership dispute between the city and a resident.
The city maintains it bought the property, while Matt Fink says the transaction was a bad deal from the start.
Fink says he wants to build a home with an ocean view.
The disputed land is located just below Lyn Ary Park in the Turnagain area.
Fink says he wants his backyard back.
The city's position is that it bought the land in 1996 and it's now park land. City attorney Bob Owens says the municipality intends to keep it.
The dispute is now in court and a trial is scheduled for November.
