Parks & Rec Commission Meeting This Tuesday

Carson City Overlook

Tuesday, May 4th at 5:30 p.m. in the Sierra Room at the Carson City Community Center.

On the agenda for (discussion-only ) this Tuesday is the efforts by Muscle Powered to construct and maintain trails in the Ash Canyon area.

The Ash/Kings Canyon Trail project has picked up momentum recently with invaluable assistance from Chas Macquarrie, Jeff Moser, Howard Riedl, Janice Brod, Toby Welborn, and Lester Fitzhenry. Though we’ve seen recent success with the Open Space Committee unanimously voting in support of funding the necessary environmental study (which is required before we can build trail on Forest Service land), our advocacy efforts are far from over.

A big selling point that we’re employing to convince our city managers that this is a cost effective project (besides quality of life and economic benefits), is that the mountain bike community is stepping up to the plate to construct the trails with volunteer labor. This is where you, the Bike Carson reader, come in.

The large turnout we had at the Open Space meeting April 19th didn’t go unnoticed and we need your help again. Though the agenda item is for discussion-only, a strong show of support from the mountain bike community would demonstrate that we’re serious about our trails.

Hope to see you there!

  1. “The Ash/Kings Canyon Trail project has picked up momentum recently with invaluable assistance from Chas Macquarrie, Jeff Moser, Howard Riedl, Janice Brod, Toby Welborn, and Lester Fitzhenry.” – We cannot forget the driving force of all our efforts. A big thinks for all your hard work, countless hiking miles, and early mornings to Mr. Jeff Potter.

  2. Thanks! to everyone who showed up to the Parks & Rec meeting this evening. We had another successful turnout (and successful outcome), with one person driving in from Reno to show support.
