Dear Neighbors
We are so fortunate to be looking at another week of highs in the 80’s and lows in the 50’s. Such perfect October weather!! While on the subject of good things locally, the Beaver Creek Gasmart looks much better with its new tan & rust paint job. POBs (Pats on Back) to those who made the paint change possible.
Also, on the good news front. Yavapai County has begun a month-long project to improve the safety of our signs themselves and their use for those who observe them. Jon David, Signs & Pavement Markings Project Manager for Yavapai County Public Works, reports that “Crews are out working on a project in the Lake Montezuma/ Rimrock/ Mcguireville areas. The reason for the project is to change the sign mounting post from a U-channel type post which currently exists to a square post telespar type that is mounted in a concrete base. The new base and post comply with guidelines that we must follow, and it improves response time for signs that become damaged. We are also replacing around 400 street name signs in the area that do not comply with retro reflectivity standards. These types of projects have been ongoing in Yavapai County for the past few years.” More POB’s!
And now the ugly. A resident took a drive up the road past Sedona Sky School and while hiking found that people are dumping yard debris (tree limbs etc) and construction debris (broken cement blocks etc) in two different areas off the paved road and on the dirt side roads. Please utilize your burn permits for the slash and use the Camp Verde Transfer Station (the dump) or Grey Wolf for the construction waste. If possible and safe, report dumping in the surrounding forest to the Red Rock Ranger Station and on private property to YCSO.

Beaver Creek eNews 9/23/2019

Dear Neighbors
Maybe we’ll be enjoying some rain (or hail) with our busy week in Beaver Creek.  Please be safe and heed all alerts.  Everything is still being held later in the week, so don’t miss out on the Kiwanis Donation Spaghetti Dinner at the Fire House on Thursday or the free food and activities all day on Saturday in Rollins Park sponsored by Grace Community Lutheran Church, Beaver Creek Trails Coalition and Beaver Creek Kiwanis. Wonderful food and snow cones are free. Don’t miss face painting, games, a car show and trails information.  BC Kiwanis is working with Supervisor Thurman and Yavapai County Facilities to purchase additional playground equipment for Sycamore Park using Kiwanis funds.  Here is an example:
Beaver Creek School currently has a position open for a custodian. If there are any questions, please call the front office and ask for Lyndel Kelley. Applications can be printed off of the website at bcs.k12.az.us or picked up in the main office of the school. An IVP fingerprint clearance card is required.  Information on where to get the fingerprint card is also available from Lyndel.
The final nine fire hydrants (from the more than 50 total) have been installed thanks to our generous community benefactor Eddie Lodge. His bequest of $550,000 dollars toward the fire protection of Beaver Creek has been fulfilled. Fire Chief Terry Keller plans to put any remaining amount after the probate is completed toward the purchase of a water truck which will help serve those in the community whose residences aren’t located near water lines.

September Happenings around BC 9/18/2019

Dear Neighbors
Lots of good things happening around Beaver Creek. Check out the “Good Things” happening at Beaver Creek School. If you missed the Kids at Hope training held at school today, no worries. It will be held again in October.
The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed the zoning change request for the 8 acres across Beaver Creek Rd for the potential location of a shopping center with a grocery store. Stipulations requested by the Beaver Creek Community Association which will protect the community in the event that the project falls through were included. These were agreed to by the applicant. The Association reported that the request was in compliance with the community plan, Vision 2020, and with the majority of the community who commented in favor of the zoning change. However, this does NOT mean an immediate start on the project. First a design plan must be approved in conjunction with Development Services and Public Works that will include consideration for traffic circulation, drainage, soil composition, etc. The Dave Wingfield / Beaver Creek Rd intersection may well need some improvements. So probably nothing to see for quite a while.
The community plan was completed with the assistance of a mailed survey to every mailbox and route delivery address in Beaver Creek and to out of area property owners. Additionally, there were public meetings. It is a very important document describing our community. If you would like to read it, here is the link. Please disregard the word Draft at the top. This is the version that was accepted by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors in 2011.
At 10 AM today in the BC Adult Center Kayo Parsons-Korn is presenting slides on Native Gardens and has some seeds to share.  On Saturday at 8 AM is a bird walk at Montezuma Well.  On Monday is the first meeting at 1 PM of the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club at a new location and time.  And be prepared for the Spaghetti Dinner on Thursday and Oktoberfest on the following Saturday.
Enjoying the beginning fall weather,

Update from Sam
 
The Rimrock Rag doll Crafters had a great second meeting with 2 new members joining us…we are up to 7 now.  Everyone shared, compared and divided up the projects.  We are now cutting fabric for dolls, dresses, shirts and britches.  Completed so far are 6 doll quilts. We even have an artist in our midst that will be painting the faces on the dolls….never fear….non-toxic paint.  We want to thank the folks who have donated….we have a good start on poly fill, but…we will need more.  We also need baskets…..wicker type….old Easter baskets would work great too.  All donations, including cash gifts, should be dropped off at the Kiwanis Clothing Closet.  And we want anyone, who would like to donate time and talent to join us.  If you can sew, flyers are up at the Clothing Closet and the Lake Montezuma post office, (green paper) so you can make plans.  Our time is a gift to the children of this community.  All donations and dolls will be given to the Christmas House.  Sam Fisk

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 Peaks Public Meeting held 8/17/2019

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.

Here is the diagram of the proposed site layout.

Events this Week 8/12/2019

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
