Calendar Crew eNews 9/9/2019

Dear Neighbors
Looks like our little September monsoon season may bring us some more rain chances tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday AM. Of course, there will be some gusty winds and we’ll hope to make it through without more power outages. The temperatures will mostly be below 100 for the next week. Yahoo!!!
Meetings and clubs that took a summer vacation have restarted and the yearly ones continue. Today are the BC Community Association and Beaver Creek School monthly meetings. Both have agendas posted on their web sites. Tomorrow the BC Kiwanis and MR Fire Auxiliary meet and on Wednesday we have the blood pressure clinic, Rimrock Farmers Market and Al-Anon Family Group. On Saturday is the public food bank at Beaver Creek School and next Monday the BC Trails Coalition meets.
Special events this month include a Pancake Breakfast at the BC Adult Center, a Food Handlers Workshop at Post 93 in Camp Verde, Kids at Hope training at BC School for adults interested in volunteering once a week, and Kiwanis annual Spaghetti Dinner.
Saturday the 28 th will be a busy day. Free Smart Devices help is available at the BC Adult Center, Oktoberfest is in Rollins Park across the street from the Center, and its Fee Free day in all the National Parks.
This year LMWCC, Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club, resumes on a new day, time, location and cost. Please note the details below. The BC Preservation & Historical Society has another fine presentation scheduled which includes seeds to take away for planting. And we forgot to get the information for the ESL class at Beaver Creek Baptist Church in the calendar, but it will be included next time and meets every Thursday at 6:30 PM.
Looking forward to more pancakes,
. . . . . the calendar crew  
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
 
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,

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

Lots of Summer Events 6/11/2019

Dear Neighbors
With the arrival of mid June, the annual preparations for the Fourth of July Parade, Pancake breakfast, Celebration and Duck Race are in progress.  There is always interest in watching the parade, however we would like to see more participants in it.  Walkers are welcomed as well as motor vehicles and horses.  It’s a different experience doing the short route and doesn’t have to be anything fancy, though decorations and creativity are always appreciated.  Signing up can be done at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station or at the Beaver Creek Adult Center.
The potential Verde Connect road and bridge project is a hot topic around here.  The Beaver Creek Community Association has heard presentations from both Connect and Disconnect.  BCCA will meet from 3 to 4 PM on Monday, 6/24, in the Beaver Creek Adult Center to finalize the association comment.  BCCA would appreciate further comments from local residents directed to contact@BeaverCreekAZ.us or at the meeting. Yavapai County is holding public meetings tonight in Cottonwood and tomorrow night in Camp Verde to present the alternatives and to take public comments.  Further information on these is below.
There have been questions about when the fog sealing will take place on Montezuma Avenue and Lake Montezuma Rd.  It has been cancelled due to the product specified with the Asphalt Paving and Supply contract would not work on these roads.  Yavapai County will reschedule treatment of these roads in the future, probably using chip seal.
Duck Tickets Here
Duck Race tickets are for sale at many locations through out Beaver Creek.  Good prizes as usual and the profit supports local Beaver Creek Kiwanis projects throughout the year.  The fine summer activities are continuing at our local library.  This afternoon, Ancestry.com training is featured from 1 to 3 PM.

Thank you to the Probationers who donated their work hour requirement toward the cleanup effort. And thank you to lots of neighbors and area residents who showed up to help shovel mud, retrieve belongings and remove flooring. POBs (big Pats on Back) to all!!
On Saturday the Lake Montezuma Village Square was full of activity.

Saturday Special Events 3/9/2019

Dear Neighbors
This Saturday is another fine day to participate in events throughout our community.  In early morning the monthly food bank is open to all at Beaver Creek School. Then over in the Lake Montezuma Village Square our new health service provider, Canyon Medical Clinic, is having a Grand Opening which includes lunch!!  At 1 PM in the Adult Center, there will be a presentation on the proposed Verde Connect which includes a new bridge and a new road.  In the late afternoon at Montezuma Well, the first in a series of free Yoga classes is offered at Montezuma Well.
Verde Connect?  The calendar crew has asked a few folks about this.  The common answer is that I’ve heard of it but am not sure what it is.  This is your opportunity to find out what Yavapai County is spending your money and to have some input in it.  Where will this road and bridge be located?  The general Verde Connect study area is below.
On March 21 the annual free dumping days begin at the refuse centers.  Thank you to the Board of Supervisors!  Fire Chief Terry Keller would like to remind you that none of the Verde Valley fire and EMS districts or departments are soliciting donations.  Please ignore calls from the Firefighters Support Association PAC.  More information is below.
 
See you out & about enjoying the Saturday events,

Neighborhood Communications Tower Meeting Scheduled for 3/11/2019

Dear Neighbors
Neighborhood Communications Tower Meeting
Monday, March 11, 6 PM
Beaver Creek Adult Center
4250 Zuni Way in Lake Montezuma Village Square (across from Cricket’s)
This is the text of the letter copied below.  Due to technical issues it is not easy to read in the eNews.  We will post copies of the letter, map, and plot construction design which will be mailed to property owners within 1000 ft at Rimrock Resale bulletin board on Beaver Creek Rd, the LM Post Office, and the BCCA bulletin board in Rollins Park as weather permits.  The CCF&MD owns this parcel and currently has a small tower on it. Fire Chief Terry Keller will be at the meeting. The eNews will also email this information to subscribers upon request.
From Luke Sefton, President & Principle engineer of Sefton Engineering Consultants:
Paul Giovanni, Chief Technology Officer with MerIT Technology Partners, plans to submit an application to Yavapai County for the installation of a communications tower on behalf of the Copper Canyon Fire & Medical District at 3660 E Stardust Circle which is near or adjoining your property.  This tower will have communications equipment for the Fire District and Broadband equipment to provide Internet service to the area.

Based on very positive community input, it has been recommended that cell service be added to the tower.  This would require an increase to the tower height to eighty feet from the originally intended sixty feet height.  This will allow the tower to be a three-carrier cell tower and encourage use of it by carriers such as Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint/T-Mobile.  Verizon, in particular, requires and eighty feet minimum height for their cellular transmissions.

I would like to invite you to meet Paul Giovanni of MerIT Technology Partners and to hear about their plans for this location.  This would be an informal meeting to give you the opportunity to review the proposed plans and to discuss the proposal with them.

The meeting will be held on March 11, at 6 PM, in the Beaver Creek Adult Center.
At this meeting MerIT Technology Partners will discuss the proposal and then discuss any concerns that you may have.  We encourage you to attend this meeting and to share your thoughts.  If you cannot attend, please feel free to contact me at 928-202-3999 orls@sefengco.com and I will be glad to discuss the matter with you.  Additionally, you may send the comment sheet to the address below.
Sincerely,

Thank you to Firefighters 1/8/2019

From Sandy Dragman – Communication Coordinator for BCAC

During the first week of January, the Beaver Creek Adult Center suffered devastating flooding due to frozen and burst water pipes. The Center will be closed for a few weeks while the Board works with the insurance company on restorations. The BCAC Board would like to take this opportunity to thank the Firefighters from Station 82 of the Copper Canyon Fire District who went beyond their normal duties by digging a trench from the back door and pushing water out of the building. This action saved the building from even more damage and the Board feels truly blessed to have this type of support in our community.

Today is extra special because a medical office opens here in Beaver Creek starting at 7 AM.  It has been a long time since one has been available, so we are very fortunate to have the services of Canyon Medical Clinic. . . .  Twelve hours later, at 7 PM, the annual Blue Christmas Service is presented at Montezuma Chapel.  In between there are Yoga and movement classes, the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club luncheon and several club meetings.  If you live in Montezuma Estates and have decorated the outside of your home for the holidays, please stop by Montezuma Rimrock Water Co to enter the contest which has terrific cash prizes.  On an added note, Walmart has a 12 hour hiring event going on in Cottonwood if anyone is looking for extra winter funds.
At the Adult Center, some more food donations would be appreciated for their Angel Tree families.  The Kiwanis could use some more donated items to sell at the last three days of Christmas House.  These can be dropped off today or tomorrow at Kiwanis Clothes Closet or on Thursday or Friday at the Christmas House.
Enjoying the holiday activities,
. . . . . . the calendar crew
