PRESCOTT VALLEY – The town could see an expansion of its property lines and an increase in sales tax revenue if annexation plans move forward as planned.
The town recently applied to the State Selection Board and requested that certain parcels of State Trust Land be annexed into town limits.
These land areas include areas south of the Prescott Country Club (PCC).
The Arizona State Land Department requires the town to adopt a formal resolution before the selection board will consider the request, according to a town report.
The Town Council will discuss and possibly approve the annexation request at its regular meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday.
Reports indicate that town staff will conduct a series of public information meetings with the PCC Property Association's board of directors and other interested groups before bringing the matter to the selection board meeting in December.
The town wants to annex the trust land to provide the services needed for future development, the report says.
The land lies in the unincorporated area of Dewey between the new StoneRidge subdivision and the PCC.
The report states several proposals exist that would extend the town's sewer services to the proposed annexation lands and other areas along Highway 69 including residential and commercial properties.
"Annexation of the bulk of the Prescott Country Club will be considered upon the indication that it is supported by the majority of the owners in that development," according to the report.
Most of the PCC operates on a septic system, but Unit 6 of the country club is inside the town limits and uses a package treatment plant.
The Prescott Valley Water District already provides water services for the PCC area.
The Town Council also will consider a project that will extend the Highway 69 path from Glassford Hill Road to Great Western Drive.
The project will cost more than $900,000.
The council also will consider:
• The use of town funds to keep the transit voucher system operational;
• A bid award for the Yavapai County Flood Control District project.
