Bill's Update: Airport Terminal Design

18 December 2018  

Prescott City Council looks at the new airport terminal design

The Dewey-Humboldt Town Council has opposed wildlife killing contests, and the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors could do the same.

During its meeting at 9 tomorrow morning, the Board will consider opposing contests that are held for profit, entertainment, prizes and the fun of killing. During the Dewey-Humboldt Town Council meeting on November 20th, those in attendance spoke in opposition to predator hunts. Despite opposition by Council, the 10th annual Santa Slay event took place over the weekend in the Dewey-Humboldt area, with 28 teams participating. Opponents of the hunts also brought up Santa Slay during the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meeting on November 7th. Tomorrow’s board meeting will be held in the Verde Valley Complex, located on 6th Street in Cottonwood.

The Dewey-Humboldt Town Council will be transitioning into 2019.

During the Council meeting at 6:30 tonight, presentations will be made to outgoing members Jack Hamilton and Doug Treadaway, whose terms end at the end of the year. Treadaway was defeated in a race for 3 positions involving 5 candidates in the August 28th Primary. Hamilton didn’t run for reelection. Councilman Mark McBrady was reelected along with Mayor Terry Nolan and the new Council members are Karen Brooks and Lynn Collins. Once the oath of office is administered to the new and returning Council members, they will discuss appointments on various organizations, including the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization. A new Vice-Mayor will be appointed; Councilman John Hughes currently serves in that position. The Town Council meeting will be held at Town Hall on Highway 69.

The Prescott City Council meets at 3 this afternoon to consider transmission of the new airport terminal design to the Federal Aviation Administration.

According to City Manager Michael Lamar, construction costs for the new passenger terminal, commercial service apron, road way system and vehicle parking are estimated to be 12 million dollars. In September, Dibble Engineering was hired to start design of the terminal, Phase 1. This includes site layout options, floor plans and 3D views. In addition to consideration of transmission of this design, the Prescott City Council will also be asked to authorize progression to Phase 2, New Terminal Final Design. The meeting will be held in Council chambers, located on South Cortez Street.
