City Speak – Prescott Valley

“When you look around and see new people moving into our area, you should have no question in your mind as to why. We all moved to Prescott Valley for a reason, and once the secret got out as to what the community has to offer, it is really no wonder that others want to move to our area.”

The Town of Prescott Valley is looking forward to an active fall — events and activities go on year ‘round with our outstanding climate!
