City Speak – Prescott Valley

“Greetings to all of you as fall approaches in Prescott Valley! One of the exciting things that happened in August is that I, along with Council and select staff, had the first-ever strategic planning session to help identify goals for Prescott Valley and to discover what our identity and branding will look like for the future. Keep an eye on the Town of Prescott Valley Facebook page as new activities, events and businesses come to our community. We invite the Quad Cities to visit and enjoy Prescott Valley as we do.”
