Prescott Valley’s Planning & Zoning Commission this week will hear a developer’s preliminary development plan request to build 131 more homes in the Granville subdivision and Circle K’s request to combine lots in the Town & Country Industrial Complex for another convenience store.

At 5:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4, in the Library Auditorium, 7401 E. Skoog Blvd., the commission will first examine Glassford Hill Holdings’ plan for Granville Unit 14, located at the northwest intersection of Glassford Hill Road and Santa Fe Loop, east and west of Tuscany Way.

Originally, Unit 14 was supposed to be set aside as a golf course, driving range and clubhouse, but it has since been rezoned for homes. In 2015, only 86 lots had been approved for the unit because of flood-plain concerns. However, on Sept. 3, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) approved a flood map boundary revision to accommodate 131 homes.

Town planners say these 131 homes fit into the Granville Master Plan, which called for 3,400 homes on 1,242 acres and was approved in January 2000.

Afterwards, the commission will discuss Circle K’s proposal to combine lots, abandon certain roadways and accept utility easements in the Town & Country Industrial Park on the southeast intersection of Highway 69 and Glassford Hill Road.

These changes would pave the way for Circle K to build its second new convenience store on the highway.

The Town & Country Industrial Park’s Circle K should be open by the spring of 2020. Prescott Valley Community Development Director Ben Hooper added that a new business will eventually be built east of that Circle K.

Currently, Circle K operates two locations in Prescott Valley, including a small one on 8200 Highway 69 at Robert Road and a larger one on 6150 Highway 69 at Prescott East Highway.

In the end, Circle K will have three locations in Prescott Valley, all on the highway. Circle K’s currently building a big new c-store on the grounds of the former Prescott Valley Motel, which was recently demolished, at 8390 Highway 69.

It’s scheduled to open by the end of the year.

Circle K intends to close its location on 8200 Highway 69 and Robert Road, a property which it has been leasing for decades, and relocate its employees to the new Circle K where the PV Motel was off of Navajo Drive and 69.
