The Prescott Valley Planning and Zoning meeting scheduled for Monday, March 11, attracted about 30 residents from the Quailwood subdivision on a rainy evening. They left without a chance to give their thoughts during the public hearing on a requested zoning map change on the 48-acre property located east of Highway 69 and south of Bradshaw Mountain Road.

Commissioners voted unanimously to table the public hearing and associated action item to a future unspecified date. They also tabled the public hearing and action item on two requests by Fain Signature Group for zoning map changes on 29 acres at the intersection of Highway 69 and Fain Road.

Following the meeting, Richard Parker, director of Community Development for the town, said the developer of the Dorn Homes project near Quailwood indicated he wanted to come back to the commission with a plan for a lower density planned area development. This will entail first hosting another neighborhood meeting, presently set for 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 26, in the Bradshaw Mountain Middle School gym.

Parker indicated this item may return on the agenda for the next P&Z meeting on April 8.

The second item dealing with Fain’s zoning map change request has “title issues,” Parker said, and couldn’t move forward at Monday’s meeting.

The commission did, however, elect its officers for the year, with Chair Matt Zurcher and Vice Chair Larry Renken reappointed for another term.

The commission also voted unanimously to recommend to council the granting of a request to adjust the common line between Lots 1044 and 1046 in Pronghorn Ranch at the intersection of Ridge Rider Trail and Serenade Circle to allow for meeting the required setbacks for the construction of a larger home on one of the lots.
