Letter: Growth in Prescott
We must applaud the efforts of the City of Prescott and Save the Dells in their efforts to save the magnificent 500 acres within AED’s proposed annexations. It might never have happened had Save-The-Dells not created a groundswell of support in our community arousing indignant voters who saw the council as far too cozy with developers in general and AED in particular.
The concern of many is the city’s efforts to change our current water distribution policy to benefit developers and users outside the city limits. The primary and immediate beneficiary of this proposed policy is of course Jason Gisi who now seems emboldened to extort even more water from the city in exchange for his agreeing to 500 acres of open-space in the Dells.
Our council appears willing, and seemingly anxious, to formulate this new water policy. The Little Chino Aquifer is our only source of water and is dropping daily. Some wells on the periphery are already going dry.
The unsustainable growth and development of our community should not be vested in the hands of developers supported by a craven council. Change will only occur by electing a council that has zero monetary ties to developers and who will champion the cause of a well-planned sustainable community.
