Calling all Entrepreneurs!

The Water Issues Committee will consider service agreement applications to recommend to Council for its approval. They include the remodel of an extended stay motel into an apartment complex on Gurley Street, the remodel of a boarding house into an apartment complex on Willis Street and a 286 lot single family development near Highway 89. The Committee will also discuss its work program, meetings and procedures for the upcoming year. New Councilman Steve Sischka joins Vice-Mayor Jim Lamerson and Councilman Steve Blair on the Committee. Sischka replaces former Councilman Charlie Arnold. The meeting starts at 2 tomorrow afternoon in the Lower Level Conference Room at City Hall on South Cortez Street.

You may have taken your Christmas tree down already, but the Prescott Valley Civic Center still has some up.

Since December 4th, the Town has non-traditional trees set up by different organizations on the first and second floors of the Center on Civic Circle. Past tree displays have included paint cans, ladders and picnic benches. This year’s display will be up until New Year’s Day and visitors to the Center can vote on their favorite. Over at the Prescott Resort and Conference Center on Highway 69, the World’s Largest Gingerbread Village is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through New Year’s Day. Hundreds of houses that have been created by groups and individuals are set up in the lobby of the Resort.

Yavapai College’s Rural Center for Entrepreneurship is now open.

The college recently held a grand opening for the Center, which is located on Ruger Road near the Prescott Airport. Vice President of College Advancement Steve Walker describes the purpose of the Center. Walker explains College officials had been looking at creation of this Center for some time. This is the first center of its kind in Yavapai County. Priority technical services that are offered include commercialization of goods and services, public and private contracting and export trade.
