Cottonwood’s busiest intersection may soon get overhauled. In September, U.S. Rep. Tom O’Halleran [D-District 1] requested a list of transportation infrastructure priorities for the state’s Congressional District 1, which encompasses much of Northern Arizona.

O’Halleran intends to include the recommendations as part of the federal administration’s anticipated infrastructure bill. O’Halleran is partnering with the Northern Arizona Council of Governments to develop the list.

More than three dozen Yavapai College Verde Valley Campus students took part in this year’s University Transfer Day, Wednesday, Oct. 4.

Students met with representatives of seven Arizona universities and colleges to see how their Yavapai College courses transfer to the larger institutions, as well as scope out financial aid, scholarships and housing options.

First, Yavapai College renovated its Sedona Center. Then, it began the first semester of culinary program coursework, welcoming 70 students a day through its state-of-the-art commercial cooking and baking kitchens.

Now, the college has decided on an official name for its culinary program: The Sedona Culinary Institute of Yavapai College. 

Camp Verde is moving into a future that sees no conflict between growth and ecology.

On Oct. 4, Camp Verde Town Council voted to become a member of Arizona Forward, a statewide nonprofit dedicated to balancing economic development and environmental quality.

From the City of Cottonwood:

The Cottonwood Airport Commission’s regular meeting on Wednesday, October 11th has been cancelled. The next scheduled meeting will be held Wednesday, November 1st, 6:00 pm at the City Council Chambers, 826 N Main Street.

Done right, a housing development is generally a good thing for a community, spurring economic and community development long past the initial construction phase.

Last month, Scottsdale-based CFT Ventures announced its plan to build the Silverado at Simonton Ranch development located on property west of the Bashas’ shopping center. As proposed, Silverado is a 55-plus community of 585 lots, each of which will contain a 1,300- to 1,800-square-foot manufactured home.

Seven months after its anticipated completion, Cliff Castle Casino Hotel is not yet open.

In early 2016, the Yavapai-Apache Nation and co-developer DreamCatcher Hotels signed a contract with Scottsdale-based A.R. Mays Construction, naming A.R. as construction contractor for the project and setting a “substantial completion” date of March 1. Substantial completion means that construction work is completed enough to allow commercial use of the property.
