Bill's Newscast: Habitat for Humanity Builds at the Home Show

Habitat Builds at the Home Show in Prescott Valley

Share your comments on proposed improvements to Carleton and Alarcon Streets in Prescott during a public open house at 4:30 this afternoon

Design is underway on the reconstruction of Carleton Street from the entrance to Mile High Middle School to South Alarcon, and South Alarcon from East Carleton to East Aubrey Street.  The project involves removing and replacing the existing water and sewer mains, installing a new storm drain system and pavement and street improvements, including new sidewalk, curb and gutter, medians and landscaping.  Members of the project team will be on hand to discuss the improvements and answer questions.  All public comments will be considered throughout the design phase.  The open house meeting will be held at the Prescott Police Department Multi-purpose Room on Marina Street.  

Signs, signs everywhere signs, but that could change in Prescott Valley

At 5:30 tonight, the Prescott Valley Town Council will hold a public hearing on sign regulations.  Last year the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the Reed vs. Gilbert case that municipal codes regulating signs based on the message they convey violate the right to free speech.  As a result of this ruling, Town staff is proposing amendments replacing regulations that are based on content with time, manner and place of signs within Town boundaries.  Temporary signs in the public right of way would be prohibited, but garage sale and open house signs would be exempt from the regulations.  Final approval will be considered at Town Council’s May 26th meeting.  Tonight’s public hearing will be held in the Prescott Valley Library Auditorium on Civic Circle.
