The City of Prescott will be holding Airport Area Economic Development Strategic Planning Sessions with the City Council to discuss the development of the airport, its facilities, and a 2-mile radius around the airport. The first of four monthly public meetings will be held on Tuesday, January 14th at 10:00 a.m. in the City Council Chambers (City Hall, 201 S. Cortez Street); the meeting will be televised on Public Access Channel 13.
On March 19, 2013, “Airport Area Economic Development, Vision and Implementation—an Overview” was presented to Council. The presentation can be viewed on the City website HERE.
Since that meeting, Jeff Burt has joined the City as its Director of Economic Initiatives, with responsibility over Economic Development, Tourism, and the Airport. Mr. Burt will make a presentation initiating a strategic planning process for the Airport area consisting of a series of sessions in the coming months addressing goals, master planning, and an action plan, to include creation of public and private sector partnerships for economic development.
Materials presented will be available on the City website following each session. Please feel free to contact the Airport Administration Office at 928-777-1114 with any questions or for additional information.
