“It’s our in-between time, and locals largely have the place to ourselves, though we’re thrilled to see all the visitors who make it up here.”
Hello and Welcome to Winter/Early Spring 2022!
This is kind of an in-between time for Greater Prescott — we’re past the “Arizona’s Christmas City” sparkle of the holidays and New Year and not really seeing the first green shoots and wildflowers of spring.
It’s our in-between time, and locals largely have the place to ourselves, though we’re thrilled to see all the visitors who make it up here.
It’s an ideal time for taking stock, making some adjustments and looking toward our bright future. All four of our City Pages have examples of our communities doing just that.
In this issue we welcome the City of Prescott’s new Mayor Phil Goode, and the Town of Prescott Valley is getting ready to create a new youth center. Chino Valley is building a new headquarters for its police department while Dewey-Humboldt bids goodbye to a remarkable landmark, the Silver King Mine smelter stack.
Amy Bonney, Prescott chief of police since last June, is our ROX Interview and shares with us her deep love for living and working in her hometown, as well as the broad experience within the department that set her up so well for the position she holds today.
The Prescott Pioneer news section covers more transitions and possibilities for our area as Pure Wafer expands its virgin silicon wafer and reclamation business and Prescott Valley Town Manager Gilbert Davidson reflects on his first six months in his job. Long-needed improvements along Interstate 17 leading up to our area are moving ahead.
Zooming in to personal improvements, our Beauty and Style section will help you out with an update on skin care advancements and lots of quick fashion lists to ease everyone into the fast-developing trends of this new year!
This also is our Wedding and Events issue for planning and fine-tuning those special occasions to showcase our gorgeous springs and spectacular summers! Just thinking of those happy times to look forward to makes me smile.
Enjoy our somewhat quiet offseason and fill your time with our Winter/Early Spring 2022 issue!
