Proposed RV park goes before county supervisors Monday

COTTONWOOD -- The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meets in the Cottonwood Administrative Center Monday at 9 a.m.

Among items for consideration is a proposal for a new RV park off State Route 260. The property is on a hill behind the Steve Coury auto dealership. Michael Mongini proposed a park to accommodate 299 RV sites and storage for 274. The planning commission gave unanimous approval to the project.

In a hearing, the board will be asked to consider a proposal for an LED reader as a part of a monument sign for Windmill Gardens on Cornville Road. Greg Collins, who owns the business, told the planning commission that the programmable sign would be able to list community events, though fixed signs on the monument would advertise businesses.

The Cornville Community Association Planning and Zoning Committee did not support the LED sign because its "scrolling text is a distraction to drivers." Speaking for the committee, Co-Chair Steven Cassagio wrote that, if it were stationary, the committee would not have a problem with the sign.

The county planning commission stipulated that the sign could not scroll faster than once each 30 seconds.

Of eight members on the County Planning Commission, three Verde Valley Commissioners Lindner, McReynolds and Grondin, voted against approval because of the lack of the Cornville committee support.

The county supervisors will also be asked to approve an intergovernmental agreement between the county and the Yavapai-Apache Nation to allow for a bus stop on county property at the County Courthouse off Cherry Road. The Yavapai-Apache Transit service is expected to begin in March.

A facility discussion will focus on the County Probation Office at Main and Aspen in Cottonwood. The county has leased the 3,200 square foot building for over $3100 per month since 2002, but the lease will expire June 30. The study session will include a slide show with a possible building site plan for consideration.
