The predecessor of ACDA, the Anchorage Parking Authority, was originally created as a separate public authority on February 28, 1984. That authority was created “to help create an environment in the Anchorage area such that parking and parking policies are positive influences for the community as a whole.” Within four years, the Anchorage Parking Authority operated three public garages (two of which were new), six surface lots, and the on-street spaces within the Central Business District. Total parking operated by the Anchorage Parking Authority was approximately 5,800 spaces. Revenues from parking operations were used to help pay debt service on the parking garages built in the 1980's.
In 2004, the Municipality began considering creation of a community development authority that could aid in developing public lands identified for their development potential and redevelopment of deteriorated or demised areas or properties, as well as affordable housing projects.
On January 18, 2005, the Assembly adopted an amendment to the Anchorage Parking Authority Ordinance that created the Anchorage Community Development Authority (ACDA) with two departments: Development Services & Parking Services.
On February 4, 2010, ACDA's Board of Directors adopted the name "EasyPark" to brand all parking facilities and programs of ACDA's parking division.
