This  shows where the Bay City village trail that would go through David Meixner’s land. The area on the peninsula, which would be the largest part of the trail, was under water eight different times this year, Meixner said. “When the river stage reaches 7.5 feet the peninsula starts to flood in several places. Flood stage for Bay City is 14 feet. It is not uncommon for the peninsula to be totally under water in the spring and during heavy rain events,” Meixner said. (Photo courtesy of David Meixner)

The proposed Prescott Sportsman’s Club shooting range is on 40 acres the PSC bought from the City of Prescott in August 2015, adjacent to the city compost site on 620th Avenue. The legal description is  SE ¼ of the NW 1/4, Section 6, R19W, Oak Grove. PSC representatives said the entrance to the range would actually be on 1170th Street, not 620th as originally planned, for safety reasons. (Submitted map)
