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,
