“My priorities for 2023 are more road paving, continued IGAs (intergovernmental agreements) with the City of Prescott and setting the groundwork for a new town hall.”
—Mayor Jack Miller
Bringing you up to date:
Purchase of the Historic Del Rio Springs
Using Trust for Public Land, which is a nationwide land preservation company that purchases land for preservation purposes, the Town’s goal is to protect the land from large development and preserve historic, riparian and the upper Verde River.
The Trust, Town of Chino Valley, Conservation Agency and Mark Holmes Consulting all went to the state capitol to lobby the Senate to get appropriations from Senate Bill SB 1392 — the ask $10 million.
- Passed the House 7-0.
- The bill made it through the House Appropriations Committee with an allocation of $7 million toward the purchase price of the land, which was included in the approved 2023-24 state budget.
