“We have some exciting things coming to fruition in Prescott Valley, including road improvements throughout the Town.
“Jasper Parkway, a connector road from Santa Fe Loop just west of the Granville subdivision south to Highway 69, is now underway. The complete overhaul of Glassford Hill Road from Highway 69 to Panther Path in both directions began in June and will rebuild the road from the base up.
“Recently we received the exciting news that the state of Arizona awarded the Town $9.9 million for the addition of a third lane in each direction on Glassford Hill Road from Long Look Drive to Highway 89A, along with sidewalks and curb/gutter.
“Glassford Hill is the lifeline of Prescott Valley and sees around 35,000 cars a day, so these improvements are most welcome.
“The PV Town Council is committed to improving our public parks, and we will be adding new parks playground equipment and additional pavement to our multiuse trails. We’ll also make improvements to the Disc Golf Course at Santa Fe Park, and add athletic field lights to Viewpoint Park, which will allow additional hours of usage on playing fields.
“We are also looking out for our four-legged furry residents and will be adding another dog park to Pronghorn Park, which will be available to everyone.
“Another focus of our Town Council is preservation and conservation of our most precious resource, which is, of course, water. This year’s budget will see more than $12 million spent on a variety of projects ranging from water treatment plant improvements to adding a new recharge pipe that will allow for future replenishment of water back into our aquifer.
“The goal is that we find a way to return to the aquifer every gallon of water the Town of Prescott Valley takes out. We want to make sure that future generations are set up for success, and that Prescott Valley continues to be a prosperous community that maintains the quality of life that we all have grown to enjoy and expect.
“As you can see, we have a lot going on here in Prescott Valley and will continue to strive to be the best community in Arizona.”
