No Comments

On Saturday, August 17, 2019, the Primrose Peaks public meeting was held by BCCA at the Beaver Creek School. Over 200 people attended, and many spoke about their concerns and issues with the proposed development. Residents were overwhelmingly negative to the proposal.

Here is a link to the Power Point slide presentation which Janet Aniol presented at the meeting.

Dear Neighbors
It used to be that things didn’t get really busy around here until mid-September. That sure changed! Today BCCA meets in the afternoon at 3 PM and the BC School Board meeting is at 6 PM. On Tuesday the BC Kiwanis meet in the AM and Wednesday morning blood pressure checks are available in the BC Adult Center. Wednesday evening is the Al-Anon meeting and the Rimrock Farmers Market followed by a possible Friends of Beaver Creek Library meeting on Thursday. The Public Participation meeting for the proposed Primrose Peaks Estates is Saturday afternoon. A FREE smart device help table is available at the BC Adult Center during Saturday morning.
On a sad note, we have lost another community volunteer and friend to many.   Sharon Casmier died on Wednesday, August 7, at age 76 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. She lived in Lake Montezuma from February 2003 until September 2016. Sharon was active in the Beaver Creek Garden Club as an Arizona Master Gardener and the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club. The local Garden and Christmas Tours were enhanced by her participation and generous sharing of her beautiful home and landscaping. Funeral Mass will be held in Sumner, Washington on August 19. Her husband Richard P Casmier can be contacted at 12909 130th Ave Ct E, Puyallup, WA 98374 or rcasmier@aol.com
Our Beaver Creek businesses have been making some changes. Rask’s Auto Service is now in McGuireville just west of the gas station. Curtis and Yolanda are located in the green two-bay building next to Lucas Hunt’s A Tow Truck operation. Rask’s phone number is the same, 567-7345, and A Tow Truck can be reached at 254-8145. Rimrock Automotive & Cycle Repair has opened at 3180 E Beaver Creek Rd managed by Alex Ferguson at 567-4174. Cricket’s Sandwich Shop will have a new tenant. Date of opening is not yet announced, but word on Zuni Way is that long time owner (35 years) Kay Nye has shared her fabulous cinnamon roll recipe with the new chef.

Rimrock Rag Doll Crafters
from Sam Fisk w/photos
The Christmas House Project is off and running as of an hour ago.  We have five (maybe six) ladies who will be making Raggedy Ann and Andy Dolls as well as Amish Dolls for the Christmas House this year to be sold or donated at the shop.  We are just donating them.  Whatever happens after that is fine, whether the dolls are sold to raise funds for the project or given to families.
We need donations of stuffing….polyfluff, cotton or wool, leftover bags or new.  We are excited to be helping the Beaver Creek Kiwanis raise Christmas funds for families and to contribute to our community.  Flyers are up at the Kiwanis Clothes Closet and at the Lake Montezuma Post Office.  So far we have received only one bag.  We desperately need more……lots more!  Thank you in advance to all who help us

Primrose Estates Meeting scheduled for 8/17/2019

Dear Neighbors
 
There seems to be some misunderstanding of the Public Participation process of notification concerning potential zoning change requests.  
The potential applicant is required to notify property owners within 1000 ft if the acreage is one acre or more and also the community association about a participation meeting.  The community association (BCCA) usually broadcasts this information much farther so that others who are interested will be aware of the potential zoning change and often sets up the meetings to make sure that they happen.  In the case of Primrose, the meeting notice was mailed to residents by the applicant, was in a detailed Bill Helm Bugle article and twice in the Beaver Creek eNews.  All of which led to the venue being too small.  So the do over meeting is scheduled for:
Saturday, 8/17, at 3 PM in the Beaver Creek School Multipurpose Room. 
 
There is a sequence in the zoning change process that is followed by Yavapai County.  After the public meeting, the applicant must submit a report to Development Services.  If the process is continued, then the zoning change request will be scheduled on the agenda of a Yavapai County Planning and Zoning Committee meeting. (At this point an orange sign with the meeting date should appear on the property.)  Additional comments from the public and organizations may be made at this time.  The P&Z Committee will vote on a recommendation to the YC Board of Supervisors.  The BOS will then hear the applicant and the public again and make a final decision.  Some informative reading on this subject is on pages 20-22 of the Yavapai Planning and Zoning Ordinance for Unincorporated which is at the County web site.
The current petition is a great way to let your feelings on this issue be known.  Copies to the applicant, to Development Services and for the Planning and Zoning Commission may be of benefit to the signers.  Written comments may be presented at the meetings and online at Planning@yavapai.us
All the best,
. . . . . the calendar crew

BCCA Public Meetings this Week 7/18 – 7/20/2019

Dear Neighbors

This is an important week for you to speak up if you have an opinion or information to share. The Beaver Creek Community Association has scheduled public participation meetings on Thursday evening for a requested 8-acre zoning change from residential to C2 and on Saturday afternoon at 3 PM in the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station for a potential 300-unit apartment complex east of I-17. The Friday morning meeting in Cottonwood at 9 AM in the Recreation Center is vitally important if you wish to see safety improvements at the McGuireville Interchange on I-17. Everyone is invited to attend these meetings.

The parcels for the requested C-2 zoning are 405-07-14-036 & 037 located south of Beaver Creek Rd, next to Beaver Creek Self Storage and north of Valley Vista Rd. Robbie’s is across the street to north of these parcels. The agent held a very limited public meeting in Camp Verde which few residents knew of and attended. A Clark’s Market was offered at that time. The zoning request asks for hard zoning only without a specific plan or grocery store.  (See letter of invitation from BCCA and letter of intent from the agent below.)
The public meeting for the potential apartments will include a presentation with traffic study information. The owners appear to be open to suggestions. The access would be through an extension of Bice Rd before it goes under the tunnel. Parcel 405-23-180 is 47 acres of which the western boundary abuts I-17. The construction would be in a valley not generally visible. The project would be designed as a PAD which means that what the Board of Supervisors agrees to is what can be built.
BCCA will collect comment sheets at these meetings. If you can’t make the meeting please help us by sending an email comment to contact@BeaverCreekAZ.us. Individuals may also comment directly to Yavapai County Planning & Zoning,
If you can only make one meeting, please attend the Friday 9 AM State Transportation Board meeting at the Cottonwood Recreation Center, 150 S 6th St. The public gets to speak first, so you don’t have to stay for the whole meeting. This is our once a year chance to tell ADOT about how dangerous it is to exit McGuireville south to Camp Verde and how scary it is to enter McGuireville from Camp Verde, etc. The board members do listen. An easy way to get there is to take Cornville Rd to 89A. Go straight on 89A and cross the bridge onto Mingus. Take Mingus to the stop sign on 6th St. Turn left and find the rec center next to the library on the left- hand side of the street.
See you at some meetings,
. . . . . the calendar crew

Parade Grand Marshals by Bill Helm 7/8/2019

Dear Neighbors
 
Bill Helm, staff reporter/photographer of the Camp Verde Bugle & Verde Independent, has shared with us the complete article that he authored for those publications about our Beaver Creek 4th of July Parade Grand Marshal Betty Hart and Junior Grand Marshal Emily Worden.  It’s an honor to email his report on two wonderful, special local residents in the eNews.
Saluting Betty & Emily,
. . . . . the calendar crew  
2019 Beaver Creek Parade Marshals
 
Emily Worden recently graduated high school. Betty Hart is on the Beaver Creek School Board.
 
Both have been active in their communities as long as anyone can remember. Now both will represent Beaver Creek at this year’s Independence Day parade. Betty Hart has been selected as Grand Marshal and Emily Worden as Junior Grand Marshal of the Beaver Creek 4th of July Parade.
eNews file photo
For Hart, the Beaver Creek community she’s been a part of since 1996 “pulls out of you what you can do best.” “I think that’s wonderful that this community does that,” Hart said. It was at age “4 or 5″ when Hart first thought of becoming a teacher. “My mother was school nurse, and I had some great teachers,” she said. Hart has been an educator for much of her life, 15 years in the classroom and another 14 as an administrator. Though she retired in 1996 and moved to the Verde Valley that year with her mother, she’s more than busy enough with her duties on the Beaver Creek School Board. With three of her own children, as well as six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren, being asked to serve as the parade’s grand marshal is “important to me.” She’s even picked out a red, white and blue outfit to wear in the parade.
Photo by Scott Worden

This year, Worden received both the BC Kiwanis Scholarship and the LM Civic Club Scholarship for her citizenship and scholastic achievements. She also volunteered last year with Habitat for Humanity’s Christmas parade. As she prepares to enter Whitworth University, a Christian school in Spokane, Washington, Worden is an artist if there ever was one. She describes her tastes and abilities in art as “super widespread,” and includes pen and ink, as well as watercolors, India inks and oils as her preferred mediums. “When I was younger, I was slightly better than the other kids at bubble letters,” Worden said. “So I kept at it.” Two things Worden knows she wants for her adult life. One, to work as an artist. The other, to serve her community. “I think community matters a lot, especially the one I grew up in,” she said. “I’m not sure anything is more important than connecting with your community.”

Good Things at BC School 6/19/2019

Dear Neighbors
Check out the good things below that are happening at Beaver Creek School, always so wonderful to see what are kids are experiencing!
On another note, Beaver Creek School is short one first grade teacher and needs housing for another one.  Superintendent Ward would work with someone who has a bachelor’s degree in another field who would like to get started in teaching and would get a lot of support and appreciation.  Please call 928-567-4631 if you are interested in the first grade position or have a lead on housing for the other teacher.
All the best,
. . . . . the calendar crew  
Good Things Happening at Beaver Creek School
 
During the last two weeks of school :
  •          The 5th-8th grade students enjoyed Bell Trail. The hike was amazing.!
  •          The  forty-five  7th and 8th grade students who earned the SunSplash enjoyed a fun day in Phoenix!
  •          The Western Theme Concert was fun for all to see!
  •          The play put on by 21st Century 4th-8th graders was well attended.
  •          Mrs Guth’s annual play is always fun to watch.
  •          The kindergarten graduation was joyful and energetic!
  •          The 8th grade graduation went well. The students really listened and worked as a team .
After school was out, we prepared for the College for Kids and Kinder Boot Camp.  Thirty students are attending College for Kids!  We had 3 students in Boot Camp but they are now ready to see kindergarten in August.  None of these students had been in preschool or Head Start.   And, Diana Iverson  is now on her three week vacation ( before retirement day of June 30) after a lovely lunch put on by the office staff on Friday, June 7!
We are enjoying having an office and a maintenance youth NACOG worker this summer.
