Prescott Valley plans to upgrade both the Boys and Girls Club and Prescott Valley Police Department.

Strategic Planning at CYMPO

The Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization Executive Board will be doing some strategic planning. The Board will be holding a planning workshop at 10 AM this morning at the Prescott Centennial Center on Clubhouse Drive.  The workshop will start with a discussion on the importance of strategic planning and a vision and mission review.  Organization staff will then make a presentation on “The World Within Which We Are Planning,” a context for a Strategic Plan.  Following a lunch break, Plan priorities will be discussed followed by a Central Yavapai Executive Board meeting at 1.  The Board, which is chaired by Yavapai County Supervisor Craig Brown, will be joined by the Organization Technical Advisory Committee, chaired by Chino Valley Public Works Director Michael Lopez, for the planning meeting.  

Boys and Girls Club to Expand Facilities

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Arizona’s Prescott Valley facility and the Prescott Valley Police Department building are expanding.  Last night the Prescott Valley Town Council approved an agreement with Stroh Architecture for design of the Boys and Girls Clubs on Loos Drive.  Deputy Town Manager Ryan Judy says this 5 thousand square foot expansion is something the Town has been looking at for some time. During a live appearance on yesterday’s Q and A show with host DJ Fone on KQNA 1130 AM, 99.9 FM and 95.5 FM, Clubs Director Gerald Szostak explained the Town of Prescott Valley is helping absorb some of the costs. 

Police Department Facilities Expand

Stroh Architecture is also working on the design of a 12 thousand square foot addition to the Police Department facility on Civic Circle.  Architect Doug Stroh explains construction documents should go out in about 6 weeks. Stroh says they are looking at a free standing building rather than building on the current one. Design on the Boys and Girls Clubs facility is getting started right away, with construction expected to start this summer.  

Prescott Council Looks at Road Construction Project

The Prescott City Council meets at 1 tomorrow afternoon to hear a presentation on a road reconstruction project.  According to City Manager Michael Lamar, the project limits for the Marina Street reconstruction project are Gurley Street to the north and Goodwin Street to the south.  Improvements include full street reconstruction, pedestrian improvements and water, sewer and drainage upgrades.  In June 2015, the Prescott City Council approved a design contract for this project.  Since then, the resulting design has been expanded to include streetscape and water quality improvements.  This project is scheduled to go out to bid in late March.  The meeting will be held in City Council chambers.  At 11 tomorrow morning, Council will meet in a closed session to discuss the purchase of property in north Prescott and to hear an update on the acquisition of a parcel in the downtown area.  This meeting will be held in the Lower Level Conference Room at City Hall on South Cortez Street.
