Granite Creek Corridor

The purpose of this project is to develop a master plan for the enhancement of the Granite Creek corridor through downtown Prescott, AZ. The City of Prescott obtained funding for this project through the Arizona Water Protection Fund.

Granite Creek has been impacted by urbanization, invasive species and previous channel rerouting.  There is a wish by the City of Prescott, its citizens and businesses to enhance this highly valued urban greenspace while retaining its natural functions and aesthetics. Prior to development of plans for capital improvements the City held public meetings with to determine the stakeholders vision for the corridor, the physical and ecological potential as well as specific improvements to be made, design constraints around private ownership, utility and transportation corridors and permitting requirements.

This master plan is meant to provide a conceptual level document that provides guidelines for future development that will protect stream functions, habitat quality, water quality and other amenities highlighted by the public.
