Reject the proposed Flagstaff Sno-Park on McMillan Mesa

    1. Petition by

      Friends of Flagstaff's Future

The City of Flagstaff is proceeding with negotiations for a lease for a sno-park on the Northeast slope of McMillan Mesa. This will be a major tourist attraction in an area that up until now people have enjoyed as peaceful open space. The developers plans include snowmaking with reclaimed water, a 400 car parking area on both sides of Cedar, 30 runs requiring tree removal, a lift system and nighttime sledding. We believe this project is not a park but a commercial tourist attraction and is a violation of the Flagstaff's Regional Plan’s view of McMillan Mesa as valuable open space.

      We don't need this in the middle of town. This isn't the right spot somewhere outside of town would be more appropriate ......please think about the locals and not the tourist for once.

      We need to do more research on the long term effects of using reclaimed water and follow the Flagstaff Regional Plan for McMillan Mesa.

      The whole commercial venture on city land stinks, plus with childhood obesity an epidemic levels this half defeats the purpose of sledding. The snowmaking noise and lights don't belong there.

      The Sno-Park is not for Flagstaff citizens. It is a money pit for the city and it is a forfeiture of priceless open space. Some things can't be quantified. This is the beginning of the full-scale selling out of all of the values that this community celebrates.

      It is vital that the recreational planning in Flagstaff be done in a sustainable, community and environment conscious manner and I do not believe the current plans provide adequate protection or planning.
