The proposed Muller Parkway easement will extend 2.5 miles through our Ranch as a benefit to the community. It will serve several purposes as a roadway, a flood detention and a pedestrian pathway for the community to enjoy. The parkway will also help with traffic overflow, keeping the smaller downtown roads running smoothly for years to come as we work hard to keep a small-town feel while allowing for measured, sustainable growth in our region.
Hi, my name is David Park with Park Ranch Holdings. The Muller Parkway is going to go right through our ranch. It goes right through the middle of our fields and basically in our backyard. However, I recognize it’s a benefit to the community, and in the long-term it will be beneficial. It’s an easement, which includes the road, flood detention, and a pathway for the pedestrians.
It’s approximately 205 feet wide and extends approximately two and a half miles through our property. The benefits of Muller Parkway will be diverting the excess overflow traffic around the town so that the town can finally be a small town – have that small-town feel again. Of the 1,300 acres here on Buckeye Road, about 1,044 acres are identified as a receiving area, which will be the agrihood. However, as part of all the amenities, only 500 – roughly half – will actually get developed.
The balance of the property will be a greenbelt for amenities and places for livestock and other farming practices to continue to occur. There’s a balance between development and conservation, and I think we have appropriately done some good planning. As part of my heritage and my ancestors’, we want to continue that and see that agricultural stays alive in this Valley. However, allowing the opportunity for others to experience the same experience that we have here in Carson Valley.
