Prescott, AZ – The Planning and Zoning Commission has recently discussed four chapters or fundamentals of the General Plan 2025. The meeting began at 5:30 PM, Monday at the library auditorium, 7401 E. Civic Circle.
The council, composed of six members who act as advisory body to the Town Council, furthers that The General Plan would consist of community goals and development policies for the next 10 to 20 years. These will include texts, maps, and diagrams. Likewise, the commission has already conducted public hearings on chapters 3 through 6 which cover Growth Area Element, Land Use, Housing, and Circulation.
Chapter 3 aims to provide guidance for growth in Prescott Valley that is “logical and healthy”, and will improve the quality of life in the entire community.
Meanwhile, Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 emphasize Land Use and Housing, respectively. Although the latter was reported not to exist in the previous update, it emphasized “the availability and affordability of a variety of housing options [that are] critical for the continued growth and success of any community”.
Chapter 6 tackles Circulation and “focuses on the movement of vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and other forms of transportation through the existing and future roads and trail system”.
The update has a total of 12 chapters while the rest are yet to be reviewed before the commission.
The news seems favorable to property developers especially that it tackled the establishment of affordable homes in Prescott.
