“Prescott Valley will continue to get better every year in many areas, whether it be major improvements to roadways such as Glassford Hill, Viewpoint and Highway 69, or the purchase of Glassford Hill, which will be the largest open space purchase in Prescott Valley history.
“Everyone has their own thoughts or ideas on what Prescott Valley should be. Some people want access to every medical specialist, restaurant option and shopping stores available in a big city, all while not growing in population and still expecting rental prices to be low. Some people wish we could go back in time to a day where there were still dirt roads and one stop light.
“As I’m sure you know, neither one of these options is possible. What is possible is for the Town of Prescott Valley to work diligently to improve and add infrastructure to help traffic flow better. It’s possible for Town staff to market to different grocers the opportunities for expansion into the Prescott Valley market and approve offering these grocers and manufacturing companies incentives to invest in Prescott Valley.
“When it comes to health care and attracting more medical specialists and professionals to Prescott Valley, it’s possible for the Town to build on existing relationships with Yavapai College and Dignity Health to work toward those goals.
“It’s possible to manage and plan growth to provide a wide variety of housing inventory and options for residents, ranging from studio apartments to 2,800 square foot homes on more than an acre.
“As we continue to improve, we do so with the community’s residents in mind. I want them to be proud of their community and I know that the Town Council and Town employees feel the same way.”
—Mayor, Kell Palguta
