City officials are asking for more input about the development of a master plan for the trails atop Kessler Mountain.

The plan will help guide existing trails management practices and future trail improvements for the 390-acre Kessler Mountain area, located next to the regional park being built in southwest Fayetteville.

More than 50 people attended a meeting in August about the project, but officials want more ideas from the public before drafting the plan.

A second meeting will soon be scheduled to unveil conceptual plans, but in the meantime, officials are asking for all the help they can get.

For those who’d like to contribute, an online survey will be available through early November, according to a news release.

The survey contains four sections and is expected to take about 15 minutes to complete. All residents are encouraged to participate, regardless of how often they visit Kessler Mountain.
