Changes to development plan need PV Council approval.

Prescott road projects end and start

One Prescott road project is almost complete while another is just getting started. The final layer of asphalt pavement along Rosser Street, from Campbell Avenue to near Eagle View Drive is done. City of Prescott crews are now raising utility covers back to the finished road grade. One lane of traffic will be open at all times, but drivers may encounter lane restrictions, reduced speeds and flagging operations. Work hours are 7 am to 6 pm today through Saturday. Meanwhile, crews are preparing for road construction on Robinson Drive off Sheldon Street. Robinson is closed to through traffic between East Gurley Street and Stetson Road. This project consists of full removal and replacement of the roadway from East Gurley to Canyon Drive East. Other improvements include replacement of old water and sewer lines and installation of curb, gutter and sidewalks. Work hours are 7 am to 6 pm today and tomorrow. This project is scheduled for completion next summer.

New development to house Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru

The Prescott Valley Town Council meets at 5:30 tonight to consider a highly anticipated development project. Bar Napkins Productions is requesting a change to its final development plan for construction of a 4600 square foot area. This property off Glassford Hill Road would include Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru and MOD Pizza restaurants. According to Town Planner Joe Scott, the original plan approved in August of last year included 2 adjoining suites. The new plan is for 2 buildings separated by a common patio area. Staff can’t approve an increase in floor area, this requires Council approval. The parcel is served by a 25 foot wide entry and exit that runs from Centre Court and provides access to Pav Way. It would also include 37 parking spaces. The Town Council meeting will be held in the Library Auditorium on Civic Circle.

Chino Valley food truck court on hold

A food truck court isn’t coming to Chino Valley just yet. Bruce Eldredge is seeking a permit to allow a food truck court at the corner of Center Street and Highway 89. A business license was issued for a food truck in February and a second one followed in April. The second truck is no longer there. The Chino Valley Planning and Zoning Commission has approved the permit, but with certain conditions. Only 3 trucks would be allowed as part of the more than 1 acre food court. When the permit was before Town Council members Tuesday night, they were informed Eldredge has asked his request be considered at a future meeting, so no decision on the permit was made.
