RockCityEditedCome be a part of the future of the Kessler Mountain Trails System!

The City of Fayetteville encourages all interested persons or groups to attend a public listening  session to be held at 5:30 pm, Monday, August 31, 2015, in Room 326 of Fayetteville City Hall  located at 113 W. Mountain Street.

In association with Progressive Trail Design LLC, the City is preparing an overall master plan to guide existing trails management and future trail improvements for the 409‐acre addition to the 230‐acre Regional Park in Southwest Fayetteville.

The purpose of this meeting is to seek public comment and feedback toward this comprehensive plan that will guide the future of Kessler Mountain’s undeveloped natural areas.  The goal of this process is to plan for some level of public use while preserving the natural resource; thereby maintaining our high quality of life as the region continues to grow and prosper.  We are seeking help and guidance from the residents and users of the area in creating and gathering ideas for the  master plan.

If you are unable to attend the meeting, you may phone Fayetteville Parks and Recreation at 479-444‐3471. Written comments may be submitted to Fayetteville Parks and Recreation, 113 West  Mountain, Fayetteville, AR 72701 or parks_and_recreation@fayetteville‐ar.gov.  An opinion survey  is planned for the meeting and will be further conducted on‐line for a period following the meeting  through surveymonkey.com
