Building Permits up in Prescott Valley

The number of building permits issued in Prescott Valley is up slightly. Last month, the Town issued 264 permits with a total value of more than 14 million dollars.  The permits were for 15 homes in the Granville subdivision, 13 in Quailwood, 4 each in Pronghorn Ranch and Viewpoint, 3 in Prescott Country Club and 2 each in Stoneridge and Central Prescott Valley.  In July, the Town issued 257 permits with a value of 13 million dollars, which was down from the 330 permits issued in June. 

Revamping the Community Health Center

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meets at 9 tomorrow morning to consider making the Community Health Center of Prescott a County Department.  According to County Administrator Phil Bourdon, a federal grant supports the Health Center, which has operated as a unit of the Community Health Services Department since January 2004.  The Prescott Free Clinic serves as the Center’s Governing Board.  Following discussions earlier this year, a recommendation was made to consider revising the agreement between the County and the Free Clinic to change the operation of the Health Center. With approval, the Center would become a County department under direct authority of the County Board of Supervisors.  A Community Health Center Director position has been created and following approval, the position will be advertised for recruitment.  The Supervisors’ meeting will be held in the County Administrative Services Building on Fair Street in Prescott.  

Missing Prescott Woman is Home!

A happy ending in the search for a missing Prescott woman.  A Silver Alert had been issued for 70 year old Patricia McCormick at around 3 yesterday morning.  According to the Arizona Department of Public Safety, McCormick was found about 6 hours later by a man who was aware of the Silver Alert.  The Dearing Park subdivision resident was walking his dog when he saw McCormick’s 2001 silver Oldsmobile and spoke with her.  McCormick had been visiting her daughter in Prescott Valley Sunday night and left to drive to her Prescott home.  However, she called her daughter from a gas station in Williams at around 8:45 saying she was lost and hadn’t been heard from since.  There were concerns since she suffers from diabetes and dementia and didn’t have her medications with her.  

To sell, or not to sell?

The Prescott Unified School District Board meets at 5 tonight to consider the sale of 3 properties.  The Phoenix based real estate company Ironline Partners has made offers on the Miller Valley and Dexter School properties, as well as the District office on Granite Street.  Two weeks ago, the Board met in a closed meeting before directing staff to negotiate certain issues.  Last November, voters approved the sale of Miller Valley and voters had previously approved the sale of Dexter and the District Office.  The meeting will be held in the District Office Board Room on Granite Street.
