A proposed new water policy extending Prescott’s water and sewer services to unannexed areas outside the city limits has been postponed twice, and with good reason. Gary Beverly, president of the Citizens Water Advocacy Group (CWAG), will talk about how the City’s pending policy would increase the use of groundwater, encourage sprawling development, and circumvent Prop 400 and citizen oversight . Beverly will also address how the new water policy will reduce planning options for roads, open space and wildlife corridors, create urban sprawl, and violate provisions of the voter-approved 2015 General Plan.
