2021 Mayor Kell Palguta Viewpoint Subdivision Update

Prescott Valley Mayor Kell Palguta posted this to Facebook today, April 11, 2021. Read below to learn more about the possible completion of the Viewpoint subdivision.

“Yesterday (Saturday, April 10, 2021) I attended an unofficial community meeting between Dorn Homes and about 65 concerned citizens regarding the possible completion of the Viewpoint subdivision.

Originally the meeting was touted by some on Nextdoor as another power grab from a greedy developer whose intent was to build apartments, drive property values down and then split town. This was the farthest from the truth and another example of some residents attempts to spread misinformation and spark anger and fear.

The reality was the following:

#1 Despite being zoned for 1065 homes Dorn Homes only wants to build around 675 homes.

#2 Despite being zoned for Multi Family Development Dorn Homes wants nothing to do with apartments and wishes to do only single-family homes.

#3 Unlike in the past, if approved the developer will do all infrastructure improvements BEFORE any homes are completed. This means widening Viewpoint Drive to 4 lanes, and adding a 10-foot multi use bike and walking path along Viewpoint Drive. Along with other requirements that the previous developer failed to do.

#4 Creating larger parcel homes to around 1/3 of an acre.

This is an example of how relationships between our residents and future development will be from now on. Our residents are our residents and they know what makes Prescott Valley amazing. It is not the place of a developer anymore to come to Prescott Valley to tell us what they are going to do. Growth is inevitable and it is now time Prescott Valley steers the direction of growth and not letting growth steer us.”

Love that our local mayors and leadership continue to share this kind of community-based development update as it gives me an opportunity to keep you informed!
