Shiprock Community Survey - (5-7 minutes estimated time to complete)

The New Shiprock River Vision "Northern Gateway" Site - What should the new Shiprock River Vision property include?

This survey has been created to gain valuable community input for the Shiprock River Vision Master Plan.  The survey will focus on the 243-acre site on the northwest corner of US Route 491 and US Route 64 in Shiprock, NM.  The Shiprock River Vision Master Plan is in partnership with the Shiprock Chapter House, USDA and Capacity Builders. As we develop the master plan, we have an opportunity to explore the different community and economic possibilities for the newly designed 243-acres of land.   Development on the site will create a new “Northern Gateway” to the Shiprock community.  “The 243-acre site” is highlighted in blue on the map below.  The next question is, what should the new Shiprock River Vision site include?  Please see the following survey questions to help us identify the different community and economic possibilities for this site:
