Enhancing recreation on Prison Hill.
Prison Hill Recreation Area Master Plan Survey – Seeking Public Opinion
The Prison Hill Recreation Area is located in east Carson City, adjacent to Silver Saddle Ranch. As part of an effort to plan appropriate land uses and trail system connectivity on these 2,500 acres, the City would like the community’s input in developing a Master Plan for this area. For this survey we are particularly interested in trailheads (including parking), access points, and your thoughts about the area on the west side of Prison Hill near Koontz Lane. The Master Plan will guide future improvements, prioritize expenditures, and will be used as a means to seek grants and donations for implementation of various site improvements.
To assist the City with this planning process, a short survey is available at this
link: carson.org/prisonhillsurvey until Friday, August 9, 2019 at 5:00 PM.
After the survey results are compiled, there will be a public meeting scheduled to review the survey results and discuss the Prison Hill Recreation Area in more detail. For additional information or questions on the survey, please contact Gregg Berggren, Trails Coordinator at email@example.com or 775.283.7219
