Council approves Kachina Mini Storage expansion; Prescott Valley PD Lt. Woods honored
The Prescott Valley Town Council on Jan. 9 approved a rezone from residential to commercial for a 2-acre parcel adjacent to Kachina Mini Storage, 171 S. Highway 69 near Dewey, for an RV storage complex.
Kachina Mini Storage stands on the east side of Highway 69, about 500 feet north of Kachina Place.
Council also agreed to extend an agreement with Viewpoint Investors LLC through 2030 for possible future development of commercial properties south of the Viewpoint subdivision, including an extension of Pronghorn Ranch Parkway, from Viewpoint Drive heading west.
Community Development Director Richard Parker told Council that Viewpoint Investors may sell its properties after improvements have been made.
