Prescott Police will be conducting additional traffic checks on Willow Creek Road beginning today.

All are invited to participate in a community meeting specifically for the Granite Creek Regional Plan. It will be held on Zoom on September 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Please register in advance.
Ad hoc committee
Arizona House of Representatives establishes ad hoc committee to improve forest and forest fire management in Arizona. The goal is to closely examine forest and wildfire management practices and policies to assess potential improvements to minimize the impact of these fires on Arizona residents and the environment. It is something that affects our whole condition.
I am very happy to learn of this effort and would like to express my support and appreciation to the Legislative Assembly. Forest fires have greatly affected our community and are still a threat in our region.
