(The following is from the Camp Verde Bugle@)
Yavapai County is studying a potential new roadway connecting Cornville Road to State Route 260 and needs to hear from you. The study team has launched a website at www.VerdeConnect.com that includes a public online survey.
“We need to hear from the community about this potential new route,” said County Supervisor Tom Thurman. “The online survey will be available all summer and prepare us for public meetings this fall.”
The study includes technical and environmental analysis to determine the best route that will minimize impact on the natural setting while accomplishing the objectives for the transportation network.
Supervisor Randy Garrison added, “This is one of the most important initiatives in this County. This new route could reduce emergency response times, relieve congestion, and provide a critical link for our network. We need to hear from our residents and businesses, and make this a community conversation.”
In public meetings this fall, results from the online survey will be shared and other project information will be presented. Eventually, a preferred route will be chosen. There is currently no funding to build this new road, but this study is an essential step toward securing funds.
Please take a minute to visit www.VerdeConnect.com to learn more about the study, view interactive maps, and complete the short survey. For more information contact Kristin Darr at 602-750-7139.
What did the Mingus to Cornville bypass get us. Did it relieve traffic problems? Did it make anyone’s trip quicker? Look at how they screwed up the roads in Cornville itself, There is concrete in the middle of the road, they put the only crosswalk not at a cross street. Now thanks to this idiot design we have weeds growing in the middle of the road. I don’t want any more road designs from Melvin.

I have absolutely no idea what this will accomplish. Connect Cornville Road to 260, way down between Cottonwood and Camp Verde? Who would use that and why? It makes no sense to me whatsoever and what would the cost be both financially and to the Forest Service lands? Let’s just get 260 finished, and speaking of roads, when in the world is Mingus Avenue going to be done?
