Staff Summary: The owners of the property have approached staff with an interest to sell to Carson City as opposed to the U.S. Forest Service. The Open Space Advisory Committee previously recommended to investigate a "possible transaction." The property has been identified in the Open Space Master Plan as a high priority. The owners have reduced the asking price and through the Legacy grant a transaction appears to be feasible.
