Bill's Newscast: Public Transportation Plan Advances Slowly in Prescott Valley

Prescott Valley hears about a Public Transit plan.

Roadwork on Highway 169 

Watch for delays on Highway 169 in Dewey-Humboldt next week.  Traffic will be reduced to 1 lane Monday through Wednesday from 8 am to 4 pm.  As ADOT crews repair potholes on a 4 mile segment of Highway 169, traffic will be directed through the work zone in alternating directions.  The work zone will be marked with temporary barricades and signage.  This work is part of a 1.6 million dollar project that includes widening of the roadway for new turn lanes at Cherry Creek and Orme Roads, drainage improvements, signage and new striping.  

NAU vs ASU Ice Hockey

Ice hockey returns to the Prescott Valley Event Center this weekend.  The Northern Arizona Ice Jacks will host 2 games against the Arizona State University Sun Devils.  Doors at the Center open at 6 Saturday night with the puck to drop 1 hour later.  Tickets are $15 dollars for general admission and $10 dollars for students.  Tickets are available at the box office on Main Street or online at prescotteventcenter.com.  This marks the first time ice hockey has been played at the Center since the Arizona Sundogs ceased operations 2 years ago.  Sunday marks the end of the ice skating season.  Open skate sessions run from 2 to 4 and 4:30 to 6:30.  For more information on skating fees, visit pvaz.net.  

Dewey-Humboldt P&Z discusses management of Animal Kennels

The Dewey-Humboldt Planning and Zoning Commission is taking more time regarding the management of animal kennels.   During a Council meeting last November, there were concerns from the public on how the Town would determine household pets versus animals used for breeding purposes.  Council requested the Commission review the definition to consider options.  The option recommended by staff would exempt pets from regulation and doesn’t include any restriction on districts where kennels would be permitted.  The Commission has discussed such issues as the limitation on the number of pets and enforcement measures.  Earlier this month, Commission Chair Barry Smylie requested comments from the Commission and public be considered and ideas be reviewed.  That review is scheduled for the Commission’s meeting next month.     

Prescott Valley gathers input on potential public transit system

The Town of Prescott Valley, Transit Plus and the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization are busy gathering input on a proposed transit district.  Following a public meeting that was held Tuesday night, last night Town Council held a public hearing on the Prescott Valley District.  Representatives from non-profit organizations voiced support for the District, but some residents raised concerns about the 30 dollar annual sales tax that would be used to fund it.  Yavapai County Supervisor Tom Thurman says he applauds the Town’s efforts. Town Public Works Director Norm Davis describes part of the process. The sales tax is scheduled to go before voters in May of next year.  If you want to share a comment on this proposal, you can go online to cympo.org or call the Organization offices at 442-5730.
