Council OKs plans for Culver's, VFW post

Ken Hedler
Special to the Tribune

The Town Council Thursday gave the green light to a Culver's fast-food restaurant and a building for a Veterans of Foreign Wars post.

The council voted 6-0 for the final development plans for Culver's at the northwest corner of Highway 69 and StoneRidge Drive, and for VFW Post 10227 on Fifth Street north of Fain Park. Councilwoman Patty Lasker was absent.

Culver's proposed a 4,500-square-foot with drive-through access.

"I'm familiar with them," planner Ruth Mayday told the council. "They are very nice restaurants."

She said the Prescott Valley location will have 50 employees.

Mayor Harvey Skoog said, "We are so glad. Everything we have heard is Culver's is a great business."

Construction for Culver's is likely to start in April, with its opening expected in July.

Culver's started in 1984 when Craig and Lea Culver, along with Craig's parents George and Ruth, opened the first eatery in Sauk City, Wis., according to the company's website. Culver's has spread throughout the country, including 17 locations in Arizona.

After Culver's received a thumbs up from the council, Skoog told Mayday, "Ruth, you are ready to go to work on that."

The council subsequently approved the final development plan for the 3,000-square-foot building for the VFW.

"I want to commend you for the hard work and perseverance," Councilman Rick Anderson told the gathering of VFW officials who walked to the podium.

VFW Cmdr. Fred Nelson referred to the donation of labor and materials from Home Depot.

Responding to a question from Councilman Michael Whiting, Nelson said completion of the post's first home will depend on donations. He said afterward that the post, which has 180 members, has raised $380,000 and needs an additional $150,000.

In other actions, the council:

• Approved a grant application from library Circulation Supervisor Casey Van Haren to pay for a digital media lab in the virtual reality room.

• Presented a Good Samaritan Award to librarian Diane Milinkovich, who saved the life of a co-worker who was choking in September by administering the Heimlich maneuver.
