Yavapai County Supervisors to consider new trail horse riding development.
The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meets at 9 tomorrow morning to consider new development. On the agenda is a use permit for a trail horse riding operation and cowboy cookouts on a more than 84 acre parcel off Page Springs Road in Cornville. Last month, the County Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval, but with certain stipulations. They include allowing up to 4 rides a day, 7 days a week for 10 years; application of a commercial change of use permit for the cowboy cookouts and an amendment to the permit for any expansion or use of structures. The Board will also consider a zoning map change to allow construction of a winery tasting room with a retail center, café and bistro and a bed and breakfast inn with 7 to 10 casitas. The Alcantara Vineyard would be located between the City of Cottonwood and the Town of Camp Verde. The Board of Supervisors meeting will be held in the Verde Valley Complex on South 6th Street in Cottonwood.
City of Prescott looks at making Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee permanent
The City of Prescott’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Committee could become permanent. The temporary committee had been formed by Mayor Harry Oberg to discuss bicycle and pedestrian issues. City Manager Michael Lamar says following the positive outcomes over the past year, Oberg and City Council members have expressed interest in creating a permanent committee that would be expanded to include traffic related issues. The Pedestrian, Bicycle and Traffic Advisory Committee would advise City Council and Public Works staff on certain plans and projects and develop proposals for improving traffic safety, accessibility and connectivity. City Council will consider establishment of the committee during its meeting at 3 this afternoon at City Hall, located on South Cortez Street.
