PV town council does its 'schoolwork'
Thursday evening's public meeting was a 'school night' for the Prescott Valley Town Council when the council discussed and approved a commercial zoning for property adjacent to Bradshaw Mountain Middle School and passed a final development plan for the future Granville Elementary School.
The council agreed to a request from Humboldt Unified School District to rezone its one-acre parcel on Turquoise Drive near the Bradshaw Mountain Middle School campus from "Residential - Single Family Limited" to "Commercial - Minor Industrial." The property is the site of the former administrative buildings; the district moved its offices into a Prescott Valley strip mall last year. The district intends to sell the old buildings and property. The potential buyer, a distributor of academic books and software, wants the commercial designation so that it can use the old HUSD buildings for warehousing, Community Development Director Richard Parker told the council.
That commercial designation duplicates one made by the council only minutes earlier to commercially zone 54 acres on the north and east sides of the middle school. The property is land the Town annexed in July. During the meeting the council also approved a development agreement with Safeway, Inc. to build on that property a strip mall similar to the strip mall Safeway already has in Prescott Valley.
