PV council to consider final plan for propane business

PRESCOTT VALLEY - Yavapai Bottled Gas approached town government officials more than four years ago about plans for a propane filling and storage center.

The Town Council Thursday will consider a final development plan for the one-acre site at 623 S. Bennett Drive in the 60-acre Antelope Meadows Commercial Center. Applicant David Cameron submitted the final development plan to the town Oct. 7, acting on behalf of Yavapai Bottled Gas.

Town officials entered into a development agreement in May 2004 with the owner of the property that included provisions for extending water and sewer lines to the commercial center.

The final development plan is among several items council members will consider when they meet at 5:30 p.m. Thursday in the council chambers on the first floor of the Civic Center, 7501 E. Civic Circle.


• An ordinance to rezone 230 acres from residential to industrial at the request of the Fain Signature Group and Fain Land and Cattle Co. The land is on both sides of Valley Road from the Big Sky Business Park east to the sewer plant.

• A rezone request for 5.2 acres south of the Viewpoint subdivision for a mini-storage business.

• Three separate ordinances involving the state's employer sanctions law as it applies to business licenses, purchasing and contracting. Violators who knowingly hire illegal immigrants face the loss of their business license.

• Reappointment of Ellen Babbitt and Joe Huot to the Planning and Zoning Commission.

• A public hearing on the "home rule option," in which the voters will set limits on what the town government may spend for the next four fiscal years. The limit, for instance, for 2009-10, is about $63.2 million. Voters will decide during the primary next March 10.

• Set March 10 as the date for voters to elect a mayor and two council members, with a runoff date of May 19.
