There could be a change in zoning on Prescott Valley property owned by ADOT. According to Town Planner Joe Scott, 15 acres located at the intersection of Glassford Hill Road and 2nd Street are zoned for Commercial and Industrial uses. The Community Development Department is requesting a rezone for Public Lands use. This zoning would make the land more consistent with other publicly owned properties in the Town. Scott adds the Lands Zoning District allows governmental office buildings and antennae and wireless telecommunications facilities. Council will discuss the zoning change as part of its voting session at 5:30 tonight. The meeting will be held in the Library Auditorium, located on Civic Circle.
