Prison Hill Recreation Area Master Plan Survey

The Prison Hill Recreation Area is located in east Carson City, adjacent to the Silver Saddle Ranch.   As part of an effort to plan appropriate land uses and trail system connectivity on these 2,500 acres, the City is seeking your opinion in creating 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.  Your input will guide future improvements, prioritize expenditures, and when completed the plan will be used as a means to seek funding for implementation.  Two maps are provided to assist you.   After the survey results are compiled, there will be a public meeting scheduled to discuss the planning area in more detail.      

Please take a few minutes to fill out the below survey questions. Your participation is very much appreciated.  Thank you.
