Bill's Newscast: Alarcon Road Project Proceeding

14 March 2017  
It’s gritty out there, but hold on. It’s going to get better.

RV Park under consideration by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meets at 9 tomorrow morning to consider a zoning change for an RV Park.  The applicant wants to develop a 23 space RV Park on a nearly 3 acre parcel on Beaver Creek Road in Rimrock.  The campground will operate year round, 7 days a week, with 3 employees.  Last month, the Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Commission approved the zoning change from Commercial and Residential uses to only Commercial, but with certain stipulations.  The stipulations include the development of property in conformance with the site plan from January and a copy of the Sales Tax License provided to County staff before the Park is occupied.  The County Board of Supervisors meeting will be held in the Verde Valley Complex on South 6th Street in Cottonwood. 

Dewey-Humboldt votes on Prop 441

It’s Election Day in the Town of Dewey-Humboldt.  Voters will decide on Proposition 441, which if approved would allow the purchase of property on Main Street for municipal purposes.  There are no arguments in favor of this measure in the publicity pamphlet, but there are a few against it.  Councilman Jack Hamilton has stated municipal purposes in this case mean buying the Old Bank building for the Historical Society’s museum.  Hamilton adds if the Town were to buy a building, it should be for Library or a Community Center residents would use a lot more than a museum.  Former Council member Nancy Wright says moving the museum to the Humboldt Center would give it better visibility and more visitors.  Using the property for part of the town offices would give staff more space.  All ballots must be dropped off at the Yavapai County Administrative Services Building on Fair Street in Prescott or at the drop box at Dewey-Humboldt Town Hall on Highway 69 by 7 tonight.  Anyone who has lost their ballot or made a mistake on it should call County Voter Registration at 771-3248.   

Alarcon Street road improvement project continues.

Watch for delays on Alarcon Street in Prescott.  City officials say road grading from East Sheldon Street to East Gurley Street is ongoing this week.  In addition to this work, crews are blending milled asphalt material to construct the base course for the new roadway.  Removal and replacement of concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk is taking place along North Alarcon, which is closed to through traffic within the work zone.  One lane is open for local access only.  

Drivers may encounter parking restrictions, narrow lanes, reduced speeds and rough roads in the project zone.  Work hours are 7 am to 6 pm today through Friday. 

What do you think? The City of Prescott wants to know.

The City of Prescott could be conducting some online citizen surveys.  According to City Manager Michael Lamar, in light of the ballot initiative for the .75 percent sales tax that will be on the August 29th ballot, the City is looking to conduct surveys on matters related to this issue.  At 3 this afternoon, the Prescott City Council will consider a 1 year agreement with Polco, a Mountain View, California based online public polling and survey firm, totals 6 thousand dollars.  Polco will help with survey language, marketing the poll, verification of voter status of all respondents and analysis of the data collected.  Since the agreement is for 1 year, it would allow staff to create additional public surveys to gather information about other city initiatives or programs.  The Council meeting will be held at City Hall on South Cortez Street.
