General Plan 2025 Q & A

What is a General Plan?

A General Plan is a document that sets forth the framework for growth and development for a given community. State law requires different elements depending upon the size of the community; these elements, or chapters, lay the groundwork for expansion of sewer and water service, construction of new roads, and development of residential and commercial uses.

What does the General Plan actually do? How is it used?

The General Plan designates where certain land uses are located, which is important in designing the physical space in The Town of Prescott Valley. Categories called "Land Use Designations" call out areas where uses are planned, such as "Low Density Residential" or "Regional Commercial." The locations of these designated areas impact how and where roads and utilities are built. Businesses looking to locate in Prescott Valley use the General Plan to choose locations within the community; learn about the availability of housing, parks, shopping, and other amenities; and learn what kind of workforce exists in the Town.

What do you mean by ratify?

Ratifying the General Plan 2025 is the means by which the community approves the General Plan. Voters in Prescott Valley will have the opportunity to ratify General Plan 2025 on March 12, 2013 when they vote on Proposition 423.

Where can I get a copy?
