Verde Villages Call for Community Support
In conjunction with Yavapai County’s Comprehensive Plan Update, the Verde Village Property Owners Association is developing an official Vision Statement and Community Plan.
“Unincorporated parts of the county, such as the Verde Villages, do not have funding or staff to undertake the work necessary for our Community Vision Statement and Community Plan. But we do have time, treasure, and extraordinarily capable and directly relevant talent in this community. Our community needs the involvement of residents – NOW.” Says Patti Greeneltch, President of Verde Village Property Owners Association.
The County’s Comprehensive 10- Year Plan will be formally adopted in 2023. The goal for developing the Verde Villages Community Plan is November 2021 adoption.
An ad hoc committee is being formed to undertake the task of creating a community-specific survey to submit to the county. This survey will provide information for a Community Vision Statement that articulates the needs of the residents. The areas to be addressed are land use, transportation, environmental, water resources, open space, energy, cost of development, growth areas, parks and recreation, business and economics.
For the Verde Villages to be represented at a county level, members of the community need to help this committee through this process. The first task will be to develop and distribute a survey that brings the concerns of the residents forward. Village of Oak Creek, Cornville Community Association and Beaver Creek Community have already surveyed their communities and are moving through the steps to be heard at the County level.
This is an opportunity for the Verde Village residents to have a voice and involvement in this community. For more information visit vvpoa.net, or call 928-646-6505.
