Oberg asks about airport considerations, and wants them to work with airport users that may be concerned. 

Comments: Sandra appreciates the open space around the airport. 

Leslie Hoyt: Asks about water, acre feet, other thoughts. The annexation comes with a water settlement agreement for 980 acre feet of water. The Deep Well Ranch will develop water conservation methods.

"They have entitlement to specific quantities," said Craig McConnell.

Answer: "This is in effect a part of the future of the City of Prescott," Lamerson. 

The city has been working on this for 15 years.  Clear statement of resource restraint.

This development must be done with renewable resource. 

Availability, efficient use, water conservation and a right-sized allocation. 

"We've secured the water for this development," Blair said.

Miller Valley Road and Hillside Avenue.
