One difficulty I have with an ADN article about Barrow:

Polar bears, which top 1,000 pounds, commonly wander through the village of 4,200.
Is Barrow not a first-class city? Aren't 4,200 people a few too many people for a village? Isn't Barrow a hub for the North Slope. If you're not comfortable calling it a city, at least you could use the phrase "community." But Barrow is definitely not a village.
