PRESCOTT  ·  ARIZONA   ·  UNITED STATES OF AMERICA                        

Prescott [pronounced pres-kət] is a city in Yavapai County, Arizona, USA. It was designated "Arizona's Christmas City" by Arizona Governor Rose Mofford in the late 1980s.

According to 2010 Census, the population of the city is 39,843. The city is the county seat of Yavapai County. In 1864 Prescott was designated as the capital of the Arizona Territory, replacing the temporary capital at Fort Whipple. The Territorial Capital was moved to Tucson in 1867.

Prescott again became the Territorial Capital in 1877, until Phoenix became the capital in 1889.

The towns of Prescott Valley [7 miles east] and Chino Valley [16 miles north], Dewey-Humboldt [13 miles east] and Prescott, together comprise what is locally known as the "Quad-City" area. This also sometimes refers to central Yavapai County in general, which would include the towns of: Mayer, Paulden, Wilhoit, and Wlliamson Valley.

Combined with these smaller communities the area had a population of 103,260 as of 2007. Prescott is the center of the Prescott Metropolitan Area, defined by the U.S. Census Bureau as all of Yavapai County . In 2009 Yavapai County was estimated to have 229,640 residents by the U.S. Census Bureau, making Metro Prescott the third-largest metropolitan area in Arizona, after Phoenix [4.2 million] and Tucson [1 million].

The Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe reservation is located adjacent to and partially within the borders of Prescott.

A playground or play area is a place with a specific design for children be able to play there. It may be indoors but is typically outdoors,(where it may be called a tot lot in some regions.

Modern playgrounds often have recreational equipment such as the seesaw, merry-go-round, swing set, slide, jungle gym, chin-up bars, sandbox, spring rider, monkey bars, overhead ladder, trapeze rings, playhouses, and mazes, many of which help children develop physical coordination, strength, and flexibility, as well as providing recreation and enjoyment. Common in modern playgrounds are play structures that link many different pieces of equipment.

Playgrounds often also have facilities for playing informal games of adult sports, such as a baseball diamond, a skating arena, a basketball court, or a tether ball.

Public playground equipment refers to equipment intended for use in the play areas of parks, schools, child care facilities, institutions, multiple family dwellings, restaurants, resorts, and recreational developments, and other areas of public use.

A type of playground called a playscape is designed to provide a safe environment for play in a natural setting.

 

PLAYGROUND HISTORY

Playgrounds originated in Germany. They were created as organized and instructional play areas for the use of teaching children the proper ways to play. Over time, organized playing areas have been adopted by other countries of the world and have become commonplace. The widespread adoption of playgrounds led to the Germanisation of some aspects of childhood development.

Recognizing the need for playgrounds, former President Theodore Roosevelt stated in 1907:

 

City streets are unsatisfactory playgrounds for children because of the danger, because most good games are against the law, because they are too hot in summer, and because in crowded sections of the city they are apt to be schools of crime. Neither do small back yards nor ornamental grass plots meet the needs of any but the very small children. Older children who would play vigorous games must have places especially set aside for them; and, since play is a fundamental need, playgrounds should be provided for every child as much as schools. This means that they must be distributed over the cities in such a way as to be within walking distance of every boy and girl, as most children can not afford to pay carfare

 

PLAYGROUND SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS

Safety, in the context of playgrounds, is generally understood as the prevention of injuries. Risk aversion and fear of lawsuits on the part of the adults who design playgrounds prioritizes injury prevention above other factors, such as cost or developmental benefit to the users. It is important that children gradually develop the skill of risk assessment, and a completely safe environment does not allow that.

Sometimes the safety of playgrounds is disputed in school or among regulators. Over at least the last twenty years, the kinds of equipment to be found in playgrounds has changed, often towards safer equipment built with plastic. For example, an older jungle gym might be constructed entirely from steel bars, while newer ones tend to have a minimal steel framework while providing a web of nylon ropes for children to climb on. Playgrounds with equipment that children may fall off often use mulch on the ground to help cushion the impact

Playgrounds are also made differently for different age groups. Often schools have a playground that is more advanced for the children in grades 3-6 and a safer playground for children in k-2. This is strictly done for the safety of the younger kids.

Safety discussions do not normally include an evaluation of the unintended consequences of injury prevention, such as older children who do not exercise at the playground because the playground is too boring

 

PLAYGROUND PREVENTION & SAFETY STRATEGIES

Because the majority of playground injuries are due to falls from equipment, injury prevention efforts are primarily directed at reducing the likelihood of a child falling and reducing the likelihood of a severe injury if the child does fall. This is done by:

reducing the maximum fall height of equipment, primarily by reducing the overall height of anything a child might climb on or into;

reducing the likelihood of falling from equipment, through using barriers, discouraging climbing, and making upper surfaces inconvenient or uncomfortable for climbing or sitting on; and

installing a more flexible surface under and around play equipment, so that a child who falls is less likely to break a bone.

How effective these strategies are at preventing injuries is debated by experts, because when playgrounds are made from padded materials, children often take more risks.

SENIORS ORIENTED CLUBHOUSE AMENITIES
SPECIFIC TO THE SENIORS ORIENTED SINGLE FAMILY HOMES ENCLAVE

A Seniors Oriented Clubhouse is a site-specific, semi-private club, often with a closed membership, that typically offers a variety of recreational sports facilities and is located in city outskirts or rural areas.

Activities may include, for example, any of golf, tennis, swimming or polo. An athletic club is similar but is usually located within an urban setting, which may exclude certain activities such as golf or polo. On the other hand, rock climbing practice or a martial art may be available. A country club will usually provide hospitality to members and guests such as a restaurant and bar, and may also provide suitable accommodations for host-catered events, such as weddings.

Most modern dictionaries give one of the meanings for the word caravan as "a camper equipped with living quarters". They in turn give one of the meanings for camper as "a recreational vehicle equipped for camping out while travelling". The earliest caravans were used for practical purposes rather than recreation, such as providing shelter and accommodation for people travelling in search of an audience for their art, or to offer their services to distant employers, or to reach a new place of abode.

In Europe, wagons built to live in, rather than just to carry persons or goods, were developed in France around 1810. They were used in England by showmen and circus performers from the 1820s; but Gypsies only began living in caravans [vardos] from about 1850.

The covered wagon that played a significant part in opening up of the interior of the North American continent to white settlement from about 1745 was a type of caravan. A well set-up wagon provided its occupants with living quarters as well as a means of transportation for themselves, plus their supplies and equipment.

In Canada, the earliest motorhomes were built on car or truck bodies from about 1910. By the 1920s the RV was well established in the U.S., with RV camping clubs established across the country, despite the unpaved roads and limited camping facilities.

In Australia, the earliest known motorhome was built in 1929. It is now in the Goolwa Museum, where it has been partially restored. It is recognized by both the National Museum of Australia and the [Australian] National Motor Museum as being the first motorized caravan in Australia.

Between the late 1920s and the early 1960s, some South Australian railway maintenance gangs working in country areas where they were required to live on-site, were accommodated in caravans built by the department instead of the tents they had previously used. These caravans were built like short railway carriages, about 6.1 metres [20 feet] long; but had wooden wheels with solid rubber tires and ball bearings.

In the U.S., the modern Recreational Vehicle Industry had its beginnings in the late 1920s and 1930s [shortly after the advent of the automobile industry], where a number of companies began manufacturing house trailers or trailer coaches, as they were then called. Often, these started out as mom and pop operations, building their units in garages or back yards. One of these early manufacturers, Airstream, is still in business today.

Though tied to the mobile home industry in the early years—when few units were longer than 9 metres [30 ft.] long, and thus easily transportable—the 1950s saw a separation of the two, as [what are now referred to as] mobile homes became larger and more immobile, and thus largely became an entirely separate industry. During the 1950s, in addition to travel trailers or trailer coaches, manufacturers began building self-contained motorhomes.

THE RECREATIONAL VEHICLE LIFESTYLE

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts & Plaid Shirt Country Clubs USA, Environmental Planning & Premier Site Design & Engineering, Construction management USA Edgemon

The Recreational Vehicle [RV] lifestyle is made up of those interested in traveling and camping rather than living in one location, as well as by vacationers. Some travel nearer the equator during the winter months in their RV and return in spring. This is sometimes referred to in the USA as snowbirding.

There are a large and growing number of people who live full time in their RV/motorhome; these are known as full-timers. There is another subculture of the RV lifestyle known as workampers. These are people that work at the campgrounds/RV parks they stay at for site and perks.

While many RVers may be retirees, other individuals and families are choosing RV travel as a way to see parts of the world while maintaining their incomes via technology available from the RV [such as the Internet, phones, faxes, etc.].

Some choose to park in locations without camping sites for a variety of reasons, including saving money, more choice of location, isolation, privacy, adventure, more self-sufficiency and to be nearer a target location.

There is a growing community of Burners [as Burning Man participants are called] who have taken recreational vehicles and modified them so as to fit their beliefs. The conversion of old school buses to this end is a popular choice. Some take old diesel vehicles and burn biodiesel or waste vegetable oil in them in order to make them more environmentally friendly than conventional RVs.

The RV Lifestyle is particularly popular among senior citizens. Like many other RVers, they have often sold their homes and often travel to warm climates in the winter. In Australia, these travellers are known as grey nomads.

 

RECREATIONAL VEHICLES INDUSTRY RESOURCE

The Good Sam Club is an international organization of recreational vehicle owners. Its stated primary goals are to make RVing safer and more enjoyable, and to save members money through Club-endorsed benefits and services. It claims over a million members.

Credited with the development of the Good Sam Club is Art Rouse, founder of TL Enterprises, a California-based publishing company responsible for Trailer Life Magazine, Motorhome Magazine, and Rider Magazine. Rouse and his two sons acquired the organization in 1968 and further developed member benefits and RV-related services for which the club is known. Rouse sold TL Enterprises in the 1980s and died on June 19, 2007 following head injuries suffered as a result of a fall, at 89 years old.

Good Sam Club is currently owned by the Affinity Group Inc., which also owns Trailer Life Publications, Motor Home Publications, Camping World, Woodalls RV park directory, and Camp Coast to Coast. Good Sam Club is based in Arapahoe County, Colorado, near Centennial.

The name comes from the Bible parable of the Good Samaritan, which tells of a traveler from the region of Samaria who helped a person along the road who had been robbed and beaten

 

RECREATIONAL VEHICLE PARK AFFILIATIONS

There are 1,700 RV parks and campgrounds affiliated with the Good Sam organization which offer Club members discounts for staying in their parks. These RV parks have to meet a minimum standard of services and appearance to be considered for association. These parks are inspected annually by Good Sam representatives and secret inspectors, who also help the parks stay current with industry trends and the needs of RV'ers.

Good Sam also publishes information to help members find parks that provide stated levels of services. Associated parks pay no revenue to Good Sam other than the cost of inspection and may advertise in the Good Sam publications at their discretion.

 

RECREATIONAL VEHICLES INDUSTRY RESOURCE

Camping World is an American corporation specializing in selling parts and service for recreational vehicles and supplies for camping. The company is based in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and is privately held. Camping World has 70+ retail/service locations throughout the United States, and also sells goods through mail order and online. It claims to be the world's largest supplier of RV parts and supplies. The company is also the title sponsor for the NASCAR Camping World East Series, NASCAR Camping World West Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Camping World began in 1966 with a small store in Beech Bend Park, an amusement park outside of Bowling Green which billed its campground as the world's largest. Campers at the park were requesting a store where they could buy supplies, so David Garvin — son of the park's owner — took out a loan and opened the store. Garvin amassed a large customer list as the years went by, which proved to be a windfall later when he added a mail-order division to the company. That division thrived, fueling the company's growth for years to come.

In 2005, Garvin announced plans for a huge development near Franklin, Kentucky called "Garvin's." The development, described by Garvin as "a combination of Disney World, Camping World and Bass Pro Shops," will feature a large Camping World store with RV 250 service bays; a five-story, 650,000 square foot (60,000 m²) permanent RV trade show and exhibition area; a "free range" campground with dry-camping sites; a camping museum; and much more. Due to the recession however the venture never got off the ground and much of the land proposed for development was sold at auction in October 2011.

Under the FreedomRoads brand, the company sells RV's through a network of about three dozen independent dealers. In 2007, the company opened the Camping World RV Sales dealership; formerly known as Stout's RV, it is located on Interstate 65 south of Indianapolis, Indiana, and is the company's only owned-and-operated RV dealership.

PLAID SHIRT COUNTRY CLUB & RECREATIONAL RESORT
MASTER SITE PLANNING EXHIBITS

Landscape architecture is a multi-disciplinary field, incorporating aspects of: botany, horticulture, the fine arts, architecture, industrial design, geology and the earth sciences, environmental psychology, geography, and ecology.

The activities of a landscape architect can range from the creation of public parks and parkways to site planning for campuses and corporate office parks, from the design of residential estates to the design of civil infrastructure and the management of large wilderness areas or reclamation of degraded landscapes such as mines or landfills.

Landscape architects work on all types of structures and external space - large or small, urban, suburban and rural, and with "hard" [built] and "soft" [planted] materials, while integrating ecological sustainability. The most valuable contribution can be made at the first stage of a project to generate ideas with technical understanding and creative flair for the design, organization, and use of spaces. The landscape architect can conceive the overall concept and prepare the master plan, from which detailed design drawings and technical specifications are prepared. They can also review proposals to authorize and supervise contracts for the construction work. Other skills include preparing design impact assessments, conducting environmental assessments and audits, and serving as an expert witness at inquiries on land use issues. They can also support and prepare applications for capital and revenue funding grants.

YAVAPAI COUNTY COURTHOUSE AT THE ORIGINAL TOWN SITE PLAT
Circa 1864

Known as the "jewel" of downtown Prescott, Arizona, the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza is a majestic, man-made urban forest in the heart of a historic commercial district. For more than 140 years it has served as a gathering place for celebrations, commemorations, campaign kick-offs, concerts, movies, and festivals.

One of the American Planning Association's [APA] 2008 Great Public Spaces in America, the Yavapai County Courthouse Plaza exemplifies how citizen support, planning and design, and grounds management and maintenance can create a treasured urban space that is the center — both geographically and spiritually — of the community.

TBNC Edgemon Plaid Shirt Country Club Environmnetal Planning, Site Design & Engineering, Construction Management Arizona Operations 2012 edgemon

THE PLAZA

The plaza's success is rooted in Prescott's original town site plat, which was recorded in 1864. The traditional grid pattern had as its centerpiece the 4.1-acre courthouse plaza. Adjoining the courthouse is the city's commercial district and businesses — many of which are located along Montezuma Street's historic Whiskey Row — that keep the area alive after 5 p.m.

Citizens are protective of the plaza and its four-story courthouse. In 2004, residents sued to block construction of an 80-foot-high contemporary office building just two blocks from the plaza. Although allowed by city code, residents protested the intrusion of a building so out-of-scale with the rest of the neighborhood. Three years later, the community rallied on the courthouse steps to dissuade the county from moving the courtrooms elsewhere.

While the courthouse itself has been built, relocated and rebuilt, and built again — most recently in 1916 — the plaza has evolved organically. Beginning in 1879, gravel walks were installed and trees were planted. In 1902, a fountain was added and, five years later, a bronze memorial statue was placed on the plaza. Considered one of the finest equestrian sculptures in the U.S., the statue honors members of the First U.S. Volunteer Cavalry of Teddy Roosevelt's Rough Riders who gathered at the plaza on May 4, 1898, before heading to San Antonio at the onset of the Spanish-American War. Several other statues have since been added.

More than one hundred seventy [170] trees, including one hundred twenty-seven [127] American elms, grace the plaza. In addition to the extensive tree canopy, the plaza features large expanses of curbed grass lawn, interlocking pavers, a painted historic timeline, and a historic well and bandstand. Public restrooms were installed under the western steps. The north courthouse steps provide natural seating for performances. And it was from those steps that Barry Goldwater announced his candidacy for president in 1964.

YAVAPAI COMMUNITY BENEFITS & SEASONAL FESTIVALS

The plaza hosts more than one hundred thirty [130] activities annually. Dancing, outdoor movies, concerts, or poetry readings are attended by as few as fifty [50] or as many as six hundred [600] people each weekday evening during the summer. The plaza is regularly home to joggers, workers on lunch break, dog walkers, tourists, Frisbee players, and parents pushing strollers.

"Other communities may have courthouses of greater architectural significance and grander displays of colorful plant beds," says Mike Bacon, a community planner with the City of Prescott, "but not all such plazas are so appreciated by its residents, carefully maintained, or so heavily used."

YAVAPAI COUNTY GENERAL PLAN EXCERPTS STUDY EXHIBIT

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts & Family Adventureland Parklnads Arizona USA Plaid Shirt Country Club & Resort Environmental Planning & Site Engineering edgemon USA

INTRODUCTION & BACKGROUND

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts & Family Adventure Parklands Plaid Shirt Country Club Arizona Environmental Planning & Site Design - Engineering Edgemon

The Yavapai County General Plan is a statement about the future. The future contains the difficult task of balancing growth, development and urbanization with open space preservation, water conservation and protection of the traditional rural/ranching lifestyle. The General Plan is a guide for County leadership in its decision-making for the future quality of Yavapai County.


GENERAL PLAN DESCRIPTION AND PURPOSE

The General Plan is described in Arizona State Statutes as a statement of goals and development policies. "The purpose of the plan is to bring about coordinated physical development in accordance with the present and future needs of the county," and it "shall be developed so as to conserve the natural resources of the county, to insure efficient expenditure of public funds, and to promote the health, safety, convenience, and general welfare of the public."

The Statutes mandate that the Board of Supervisors "shall adopt a comprehensive plan and subsequently amend or extend the adopted plan"; and that the "commission shall formulate" the plan for the purpose "primarily as an aid … in the performance of its duties." The General Plan is a guideline to aid in the decision-making process of the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors. It is not a zoning ordinance, regulatory or taxing code; nor is it a specific area or community plan. The General Plan does not delete or amend adopted ordinances, codes, special studies or community plans.

With the growth over the past 25 years, the size and number of cities and towns in Yavapai County increased with the incorporations of Prescott Valley, Camp Verde and Sedona. Additionally, the City of Peoria annexed property inside the County boundaries, and the Town of Wickenburg is expected to do the same in the near future. State and County highways have been widened, improved and signalized. The previous country-lane appearance of Yavapai County highways and arterial roads is all but gone.

Much commercial development borders the highways, and the "big box" retail outlets are sprouting near the expanding urbanized areas. Unregulated splitting of large residential lots is rampant in the unincorporated areas, creating concerns about the impact on wildlife habitats and corridors, transportation, drainage, and on groundwater quality and supply.

As a result of the rapid growth experienced in the 1980's and '90's, many unincorporated communities of Yavapai County undertook individual studies of specific Community Plans. These include Cornville, Cordes Lakes/Spring Valley, Big Park, Beaver Creek, Black Canyon City, Dewey-Humboldt, Granite Dells, and Red Rock/Dry Creek.

Other special studies were undertaken in the 1990's, including Yavapai County Wireless Communications Plan, Yavapai County Master Trails Plan, 1998 Central Yavapai County Transportation Study Update, and 1999 Verde Valley Regional Transportation Study Update. The adopted Community Plans and special study plans remain in effect and are readopted with the new Yavapai County General Plan as noted in Section VIII.

The vast changes since the 1975 General Development Plan prompted the community plans and special studies, which in turn, resulted in the need for a unifying, County-wide document establishing a future vision with broad-based goals and objectives. This need, in addition to recent Arizona Statute requirements and citizen requests for resource and growth management, prompted the Board of Supervisors to authorize the commencement of the Yavapai County General Plan in 2001. The General Plan Process, running approximately over eighteen months, is described in the following Section II.

YAVAPAI COUNTY ENVIRONS CONTEXT AND HISTORY

Yavapai County is located in north central Arizona; its south boundary is approximately seventy [70] miles north of downtown Phoenix, and its north boundary approximately sixty [60] miles south of the Grand Canyon. Maricopa County abuts Yavapai's southern boundary, and Coconino County its northern and northeastern boundaries. Mohave and La Paz Counties share its western boundary, while Gila County attaches at Yavapai's southeastern corner.

Yavapai County comprises over 8,000 square miles of various topographies ranging from approximately 1,700 ft. desert elevations to 7,900 ft. forested mountain peaks, and grassland mesas at 4,000 to 5,000 ft. elevations above sea level. The physical environment is as varied as Yavapai County's recorded history, with Yavapai being one of Arizona Territory's original four[4] counties.

 

Long before Territorial times, however, the area is believed to have been populated by the Hohokam people from the Salt and Gila River Valleys as early as 700 A.D. The Sinagua people from the north and east migrated into the Verde Valley area about 400 years later. Much evidence of these ancient people can be found in the Tuzigoot and Montezuma Castle and Well ruins, which appear to have been abandoned by 1450 A.D. The Yavapai People were contacted by early Spanish explorers in the late 1500's. The County was named for the Yavapai Indians.

Yavapai County was established by the Arizona Territorial Government in 1864 with 85,000 square miles stretching from New Mexico to Mohave County, the Gila River to Utah. Eight [8] other counties were eventually created from the original vast land area of Yavapai County. The first Territorial Capital was established in Prescott, the county seat, from 1864 to 1867 and again from 1877 to 1899. With the building of Ft. Whipple in 1864, followed shortly by Ft. Verde, miners migrated into the mountains of south and western Yavapai County. When large copper deposits were discovered in the 1870's at Jerome, smelters in Clarkdale and Clemenceau (now in Cottonwood), and the early development of the Jerome-Verde Valley areas, resulted.

Enhanced by the construction of the railroad across northern Arizona in the 1880's and the ceasing of Indian wars, Yavapai County's population grew. The existence of well watered grasslands attracted farming and ranching to the Verde, Chino and Peeples Valleys. During the Territorial Capitol period in Prescott and well beyond the turn-of-the-century, successful mining, farming and ranching in the Jerome-Verde Valley and southwestern mountain regions meant expansion for the County in cultural amenities, housing and population. In some communities, business diversified as mines played out, while others, like Jerome, became ghost towns. Mining remains viable in Bagdad and, to a lesser degree, in other parts of the County.

By 1910, Yavapai County's population was approximately 16,000 people. It rose rapidly to over 24,000 by 1920, but remained somewhat constant during the next forty [40] years. The 1970 population of nearly 37,000 reflected the beginning of new, rapid migrations that continued through the last quarter of the twentieth century.

THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY VISION

With over 167,500 residents counted in the 2000 U.S. Census, Yavapai County is looking to a new vision for the new century. The following Yavapai County Planning Vision was drafted from the input of hundreds of residents and business people during the summer and fall of 2001. It reflects the desire to maintain the sense of small-town, ranching traditions; of openness and compatibility between rural and urbanizing areas; of planned growth and managed resources, with diversity in education, housing, and economic growth, as well as transportation alternatives.

The Planning Vision was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on December 17, 2001, and readopted with the 2003 Yavapai County General Plan on April 7, 2003.

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts & Graet Family Parkland Adventures & Experiences Environmental Planning & Site Design, Engineering & Construction Managament Programs USA Edgemon

 

THE YAVAPAI COUNTY PLANNING VISION

Yavapai County citizens' Planning Vision is founded on the secure, family-oriented, small town living quality, within diverse communities, derived from our Western rural and ranching traditions. The County's rich natural resources, unrivalled recreational and outdoor opportunities, scenic vistas, clean air, forests, grasslands, healthy rivers and biodiversified riparian areas will be preserved through implementation of the Yavapai County General Plan goals.

Progress will be supported by open government, respect for individual rights, and the self-reliant spirit of our people. Future development decisions will strive for economic growth, housing value with affordability, educational excellence and cultural opportunities.

Planned, managed growth will be the key to maintaining compatibility between rural areas and more compact, clustered development, while preserving open space and avoiding sprawl. Aggressive water resource management, conservation and avoidance of groundwater contamination will preserve both supply and quality. Transportation efficiency will be advocated by planning for better, safer connections and alternative modes of transportation, including bicycling and public transit between communities, with reduced emphasis on major highways.

Yavapai County will achieve the Planning Vision and General Plan Goals that preserve the unique characteristics of our land and communities; the County will be committed to high development standards and service improvements that implement citizens' expectations of living excellence in harmony with the environment.

POPULATION FACTORS

While the population in Yavapai County increased by more than four hundred [400%] percent during the past three [3] decades, its rate of change decreased from approximately 84% in 1970-80 to 56% in 1990-2000. This declining rate of change is common as the base population enlarges. Other data reveal other aspects of the current populations which may affect future growth trends. The 2000 Census data show that the majority of "Places" in Yavapai County have populations with median ages above the child-bearing years. Their average household sizes correspond to this statistic. Recent school enrollment trends also reflect the older ages and smaller family sizes.

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts & Families Adventureland Parklands Programs, Environmental Planning & Site Design - Engineer & Development Arizona USA Edgemon

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts USA Plaid Shirt Country Clubs & Resorts Environmental Planning, Site Design & Engineering Family Adventure Experiences & Parklands Arizona USA

 

MEDIAN AGE & HOUSEHOLD FORMATION

Yavapai County's median age, 44.5 years, is older than the United States' median age, 35.3 years, and older than Arizona's median age, 34.2 years. Except for Ash Fork, Bagdad and the two [2] Indian Reservations, all other Yavapai County Places have median ages older than that of the State. Some "Places," such as Big Park, Congress, Dewey-Humboldt, Peeples Valley, Sedona, Wilhoit, Williamson Valley and Yarnell have median ages of 50 to 60 years, considerably older than the State's. Consequently, it is not surprising that Yavapai County's average household size, 2.05, is smaller than Arizona's 2.64 persons per household.

 

LONG RANGE POPULATION PROJECTIONS

The Arizona Department of Economic Security [DES] provides population projections for the State, County and Places counted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The chart that follows provides the most recent population projections available, produced by DES in 1997. As a point of reference, the actual populations counted in the 2000 Census are also shown.

EXISTING ZONING AND LAND USE PATTERNS

In the twenty-first century, Yavapai County is no longer a completely "rural" county. Ranching and rural lifestyles still occur in the more remote portions of the County, but the dynamic growth over the past thirty [30] years has resulted in much urbanization. Several new municipalities and unincorporated communities have been created, while the expansion of many existing cities, towns and suburban areas has intensified. The predominant land uses of private properties in the unincorporated areas of the County are residential and ranching

 

PLANNED DEVELOPMENT AND OTHER ZONING CONSIDERATIONS

For the most part, master planned developments throughout the County provide orderly development, generally with complete infrastructure, such as water and wastewater systems, utilities, and well constructed roads and circulation networks. The overwhelming majority of developed properties in the unincorporated areas of Yavapai County, however, have not had the benefit of planning or infrastructure due to parcel splitting, rather than subdivision or planned area development.

County subdivision regulations and Planned Area Development [PAD] zoning ordinances require dedication and installation of complete infrastructure, coordinated roadway networks and major circulation alignments. Other amenities, such as a minimum of twenty-five [25%] percent open space, are required for PAD's. Most open space, trails and recreational uses on private land have been provided through planned area developments. Additionally, many school, public safety and other civic-use sites are reserved through the process.

While large planned area developments may include some mixture of different land uses, very few have succeeded in providing more than major recreational amenities and resort type development to augment the primary residential use. Other land use zoning including retail, service and general business exist mostly near or within cities and towns.

Historic downtown business centers remain viable in older cities and towns such as Prescott, Clarkdale, Cottonwood and Jerome. Downtown construction or revitalization are underway or planned in Prescott Valley, Sedona, Humboldt, Mayer and Yarnell. Other towns and communities are also hoping to invigorate their downtown areas.

General and tourist commercial and employment type zoning are usually located, or proposed for, major intersections along State Highways 69, 89, 89A, 179 and 260, and at interchanges of Interstate 17. Some strip development of commercial uses have also occurred along the State Highways.

Mining as a major land use in Yavapai County has declined. Mining operations, however, continue in the community of Bagdad, with smaller mining entities in various parts of the County. Although zoned as rural residential rather than agriculture, ranching and agricultural uses still predominate in the western and southern regions of the County and along the Verde River, creeks and major watercourses.

 

PLANNED AREA DEVELOPMENT [PAD] COMMUNITIES 

A "Planned Area Development" [PAD], often called a "master planned community" [MPC], which contains only residential uses and a recreational or open-space amenity may be considered a "Community" only if it also provides central water and sewer services, and Community Core facilities.

A community center [i.e., people-gathering facility] and park or recreation amenity are key factors in Community place recognition. The central infrastructure systems, often commonly owned, add to the pride of Community identification. Other uses are encouraged, including Community-scaled Commercial uses to provide for the daily needs of the PAD residents, as well as public safety and educational sites.

Typical uses found in a Planned Area Development Community include the following:

• PAD Community-Core Uses: community center building, central water and sewer systems, large amounts of common open space areas, recreation facilities and trails, public safety, educational and religious institution sites.

MAJOR TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS

Transportation in Yavapai County is primarily provided via the State and Federal Highway systems, augmented by major County roads. Although Yavapai County measures over one hundred [100] miles in its width and length at its extremes, there is a limited number of major transportation corridors within the County's large geographic area. This is due to the vast amounts of vacant Federal and State lands. The majority of the developed communities and privately owned areas are within the Eastern and Central "thirds" of the County. Consequently, the major transportation network runs through these two-thirds of the County, with a small portion of federal and state highways in the southwest corner.

 

Two [2] major highway corridors, State Route 89 and Interstate 17, running north/north-easterly through the County, serve the majority of Yavapai County communities, cities and towns. Five [5] other State highways, SR 179, SR 260, SR 89A, SR 69 and SR 169, provide connecting corridors for the Verde Valley Area and the Central Yavapai Region. Outlying communities, such as Seligman and Ash Fork, have direct access to Interstate 40, while Bagdad and Congress are in the vicinity of U.S. 93. The locations of the state and federal highways described below are shown in the adjacent map

State Route 69 and SR 89 meet at a junction in Prescott, from which SR 69 runs east/southeast to Interstate 17. SR 69 provides the major link for Prescott, Yavapai-Prescott Indian Reservation, Prescott Valley, Dewey, Humboldt, Poland Junction, Mayer and Spring Valley to the federal freeway system. SR 69 has the greatest number of traffic counts [vehicle trips per day exceeding 43,000] of any highway or freeway within Yavapai County.

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts & Family Adventure Experiences Arizona & USA Environmental Planning, Site Design, Engineering & Construction Management Programs USA Edgemon

Construction to complete SR 69, as a highway with 4-lanes plus turning lanes, was completed in the mid-1990's. Between Dewey and I-17, SR 69 is a divided, limited-access highway. A small portion of SR 69 was recently widened to six travel lanes as a result of a new regional shopping mall and a new connector street, Prescott Lakes Parkway, from SR 69 to SR 89.

State Route 169 similarly, connects the Dewey-Humboldt Area at SR 69 with I-17 at an interchange approximately mid-way between Cordes Junction and Camp Verde. It is a 2-lane, limited-access highway. One-half of SR 169's approximate 15-mile length traverses the Prescott National Forest. SR 169 provides convenience for travel north to the Verde Valley/I-17/I-40 from the Prescott/Prescott Valley area, and south from Sedona/Camp Verde areas to the Central Region. SR 169 is the access to the primary landfill, Gray Wolf Landfill, serving most of the County.

U. S. Highway 93 is the major highway in the southwest corner of Yavapai County, running

DEWEY – HUMBOLDT VISION 2028
A Statement Describing the Next Twenty [20] Years

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts & Family Parkland Experiences Arizona & USA Environmental Planning & Site Design - Engineering & Construction Management USA Edgemon

The Town of Dewey‐Humboldt was created in 2004 to preserve the low‐density lifestyle that area residents came to enjoy, and were fearful of losing. People live in Dewey‐Humboldt because they like a slower pace, more elbow room, and a more rural character. They like the freedom to be themselves, to respect and be respected regardless of their role in the community. They like the view of the mountains and want to know the skies will be clear, the water clean, and the air fresh. Keeping these attributes will make Dewey‐Humboldt a jewel in the quad‐cities.

Growth projections for the State Route 69 corridor indicate significant pressure to develop over the next few years. Therefore, the council's vision for Dewey‐Humboldt is that it maintains its uniqueness to be the "crown jewel" in the predicted megalopolis that will stretch from Prescott to Nogales.

 

"We know and expect that…

1

Our population will grow in conformance with the General Plan. People will be attracted by our low‐density residential community and small‐town Lifestyle.

2

Some commercial enterprises will be needed to help support the Town's population, but the locations of those businesses should be focused and concentrated.

3

Non‐industrial type home‐based businesses will be part of the future growth.

4

Some property owners will want to maximize the value of their land and make it available for development.

5

Water supply will be a limiting factor in our growth and development. We need to emphasize water conservation and reuse.

6

With increased growth, transportation and circulation need to be well planned. No one can stop change from coming and not all change is bad. Therefore, we, the Town Council, will focus any changes we're asked to support on meeting the following fundamental criteria:

 

 

We promote…

1

Broad, inclusive and effective involvement by residents in all planning activities.

2

Development that will foster the look and feel of openness and protect the view‐scape.

3

Codes, laws, standards and regulations that balance the rights of the individual and low density residential living with the rights of the collective population.

4

Protection and non‐destructive use of our natural resources including the surrounding mountains and hills, natural open space, public lands, rivers, and streams.

5

A balanced, cost‐effective outlook to maintain a healthy environment and future development.

6

Public safety and the quiet enjoyment of this wonderful place by all that live or visit here."

Given the barrier that SR 69 presents to non-motorized and motorized trail users, the fact that there are large culverts under the roadway that may be suitable for grade separated trail crossings presents a great opportunity to connect the trail system across this barrier.

Using these connections would help connect the town socially, economically and physically while encouraging safer trail use by avoiding heavy traffic on the roadway. There is precedence for this in the surrounding communities of Prescott and Prescott Valley.

Stormwater is water that originates during precipitation events. It may also be used to apply to water that originates with snowmelt that enters the stormwater system. Stormwater that does not soak into the ground becomes surface runoff, which either flows directly into surface waterways or is channeled into storm sewers, which eventually discharge to surface waters.

Stormwater is of concern for two main issues: one related to the volume and timing of runoff water (flood control and water supplies) and the other related to potential contaminants that the water is carrying, i.e. water pollution.

Stormwater is also a resource and ever growing in importance as the world's human population demand exceeds the availability of readily available water. Techniques of stormwater harvesting with point source water management and purification that can potentially make urban environments self sustaining in terms of water.

 

STORM WATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS  [SWMP]   ·  BRIEF HISTORY

Since humans began living in concentrated village or urban settings, stormwater runoff has been an issue. During the Bronze Age, housing took a more concentrated form, and impervious surfaces emerged as a factor in the design of early human settlements. Some of the early incorporation of stormwater engineering is evidenced in ancient Greece.

A specific example of an early stormwater runoff system design is found in the archaeological recovery at Minoan Phaistos on Crete

 

Because impervious surfaces (parking lots, roads, buildings, compacted soil) do not allow rain to infiltrate into the ground, more runoff is generated than in the undeveloped condition. This additional runoff can erode watercourses (streams and rivers) as well as cause flooding after the stormwater collection system is overwhelmed by the additional flow. Because the water is flushed out of the watershed during the storm event, little infiltrates the soil, replenishes groundwater, or supplies stream baseflow in dry weather.

Pollutants entering surface waters during precipitation events is termed polluted runoff. Daily human activities result in deposition of pollutants on roads, lawns, roofs, farm fields, etc. When it rains or there is irrigation, water runs off and ultimately makes its way to a river, lake, or the ocean. While there is some attenuation of these pollutants before entering the receiving waters, the quantity of human activity results in large enough quantities of pollutants to impair these receiving waters

Managing the quantity and quality of stormwater is termed, "Stormwater Management." The term Best Management Practice (BMP) is often used to refer to both structural or engineered control devices and systems (e.g. retention ponds) to treat polluted stormwater, as well as operational or procedural practices. There are many forms of stormwater management and BMPs, including:

• Manage stormwater to control flooding and erosion;
• Manage and control hazardous materials to prevent release of pollutants into the environment (source control);
• Plan and construct stormwater systems so contaminants are removed before they pollute surface waters or groundwater resources;
• Acquire and protect natural waterways where they still exist or can be rehabilitated;
• Build "soft" structures such as ponds, swales or wetlands to work with existing or "hard" drainage structures, such as pipes and concrete channels;
• Revise current stormwater regulations to address comprehensive stormwater needs;
• Enhance and enforce existing ordinances to make sure property owners consider the effects of stormwater before, during and after development of their land;
• Educate a community about how its actions affect water quality, and about what it can do to improve water quality; and
• Plan carefully to create solutions before problems become too great

THE YAVAPAI COUNTY POSSE

On many search missions, as many as twenty-plus [20+] Posse members may respond in ten [10] or more 4X4 vehicles, all of which are fully Search and Rescue [SAR] outfitted including radios, GPS and phone equipment.

Up to six [6] members of the Communications Squad may be called upon to provide base-command to field unit communications from either the Sheriff's MCP or the Posse's own CCV, or both.

Posse members come from all walks of life and many have been involved in SAR activities for more than ten [10] years. Each Posse 4X4 vehicle is manned by a two person crew - a driver and an observer. These highly qualified individuals are trained to function as a well-knit team in order to accomplish the mission. Posse members are required to be fully qualified in CPR and First Aid, and they have all completed both the Basic and Advanced Academies of the Yavapai County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Training Program.

 

YAVAPAI COUNTY JEEP POSSE OLD AND NEW
COMMAND AND COMMUNICATIONS VEHICLES

When called out for search missions by the Yavapai County Sheriff, all Posse members function as Special Deputy Sheriffs and perform a valuable service to the community at no cost to the taxpayers.

The Posse has a highly mobile four-wheel drive tactical Command and Communications Vehicle [CCV] which, when called, rolls immediately upon a search call-out. Often, the Sheriff's Mobile Command Post [MCP] serves as the base of operations, but the Posse's CCV is the "go-anywhere" vehicle and is used in conjunction with the MCP, especially into areas where the MCP is unable to travel. This rolling CCV contains the Posse's maps, generators, radios, first aid equipment, and computers. The CCV provides communication frequencies needed to talk to the Search Dog Teams, Air Group Search Planes, Rescue Helicopters, Back-Country Units and Mounted [Horse] Posses, Quad [ATV] units, 4X4 teams, the U.S. Forest Service, local Police Departments, Arizona DPS, and Yavapai County Sheriff's Deputies.

Regular monthly business and training meetings are held in the Posse-owned headquarters building. Also, there are monthly in-the-field training events throughout the year. In its quest to serve the public, the Yavapai County Jeep Posse is always in need of new members; both drivers and observers. While drivers are required to furnish their own 4X4 vehicles, observers are asked to bring a good set of eyes and a determination to be the Posse Team member who has the good fortune to be able to say: "There he is!" If you are in good health and have the ability to devote the time demanded by this life-saving work, please contact us for more information.

MANUFACTURED HOMES


STUDY CREDIT

Manufactured housing [commonly known as mobile homes in the United States] is a type of prefabricated housing that is largely assembled in factories and then transported to sites of use. The definition of the term in the United States is regulated by federal law [Code of Federal Regulations, 24 CFR 3280]:

"Manufactured homes are built as dwelling units of at least 320 square feet in size with a permanent chassis to assure the initial and continued transportability of the home." The requirement to have a wheeled chassis permanently attached differentiates "manufactured housing" from other types of prefabricated homes, such as modular homes.

 

MODULAR HOMES

Modular buildings and modular homes are sectional prefabricated buildings or houses that consist of multiple modules or sections which are manufactured in a remote facility and then delivered to their intended site of use. The modules are assembled into a single residential building using either a crane or trucks.

Modular buildings are considerably different from mobile homes. Off-frame modular dwellings differ from mobile homes largely in their absence of axles or a frame, meaning that they are typically transported to their site by means of flat-bed trucks; however, some modular dwellings are built on a steel frame [on-frame module] that can be used for transportation to the site. Many modular homes have multiple levels. Homes are often set in place using a crane.

  

UTILIZATION

Modular buildings have a variety of uses. They may be used for long-term, temporary or permanent facilities, such as construction camps, schools and classrooms, civilian and military housing, and industrial facilities. Modular buildings are used in remote and rural areas where conventional construction may not be reasonable or possible, for example, the Halley VI accommodation pods used for a BAS Antarctic expedition.

Other uses have included churches, health care facilities, sales and retail offices, fast food restaurants and cruise ship construction.

Buying a new manufactured home is both a smart and wise investment. You have assurances of quality from the federal government under the U.S. Housing and Urban Development construction standards program [implemented in 1976 to regulate the factory construction of every manufactured home built in America]. This code assures the home buyer that a home constructed in California, or anywhere in the country, is covered by this strict code that supersedes all state and local regulations.

This code covers design and construction regulations such as strength, durability, fire resistance and energy efficiency, plus heating, plumbing, air conditioning and electrical systems.

Factory construction creates better value for the home buyer. The key to building high-quality homes is having a well trained, stable work force in a factory setting. There are no independent, uncontrolled, expensive subcontractors. As new methods and technologies improve how the homes are built, worker training can be accomplished easily within the worker groups on the factory floor.

Workers use sophisticated cutting and fastening machinery to ensure accurate, strong assembly. Large items such as roofing structures and walls can be pre-assembled, then placed accurately in position with overhead cranes. In-house shops pre-build kitchen and bathroom cabinets that are done on time and fit right on the first try.

A comprehensive quality inspection process guarantees that value is into every home at each step.

Bringing all the advantages of factory construction together makes it easier to maintain higher and more consistent quality in the building of manufactured homes and at a much lower cost than be done with site-built homes.

The manufactured home begins on a computer, using the latest software technology, assuring that the construction plan is designed and features and elements are perfect in every detail. Factories are able to buy materials in much larger quantities than site-builders, thus providing an enormous savings. In the climate controlled environment of the factory, builders are able to produce anywhere from 30 to 40 manufactured homes in a single week. Without weather delays the factory establishes a steady flow of efficiency that enables work to progress from start to finish uninterrupted. This translates to quality in the final product.

Materials are exactly the same as site-builders use. Same national brands, same dimensional lumber. If fact, you'll find that most building innovations were first used in a manufactured home factory. The major factory assembly line approach cuts construction costs by 20% on each unit. HUD standards of heating and cooling are quite rigid, and mean that each unit will be properly insulated, no matter in what climate zone that home may be placed. The walls are moved around by automated cranes, and as the wall is properly placed, the ceiling is also attached, providing for an air tight fit.

Because every movement in the factory is orchestrated for a specific reason, the efficiency level is extremely high. Because of these efficiencies, manufactured housing costs about one half what the conventional site-built home cost with same square footage and amenities. From the floor plan, to completion, including all integrated parts, such as wiring, insulation, to the exterior siding, are done in a matter of days in a carefully controlled work process.

Many standards applied to manufactured housing builders are unheard of in site-built construction. Quality is equal to, or greater than, some commercial buildings. Teams of quality control personnel are in constant contact with the construction process to insure that the job is done right the first time. In quality, energy efficiency, and value, manufactured homes are the new era of single family housing.

According to manufacturers, modular homes are generally designed to be initially stronger than traditional homes by, for example, replacing nails with screws and adding glue to joints. This is supposed to help the modules maintain their structural integrity as they are transported on trucks to the construction site.

Despite manufacturer claims that the modular home is initially built to be stronger than a traditional home, it is difficult to predict the final building strength since it needs to endure transportation stresses that traditional homes never experience.

When FEMA studied the destruction wrought by Hurricane Andrew in Dade County Florida, they concluded that modular and masonry homes fared best compared to other construction.

Typically, a modular home contains about ten [10] to twenty [20] percent more lumber compared to traditional stick-built homes. This is because modules need to be transported to the job site and the additional lumber helps keep them stable.

 

STANDARDS APPLICATON & LAND USE ZONING CONSIDERATIONS

Typically, modular dwellings are built to local, state or council code: dwellings built in a given manufacturing facility will have differing construction standards depending on the final destination of the modules. Steel and/or wood framing are common options for building a modular home. Modular home designs can be customized for local zoning codes. For example, homes built for final assembly in a hurricane-prone area may include additional bracing to meet local building codes.

Some US courts have ruled that zoning restrictions applicable to mobile homes do not apply to modular homes since modular homes are often assembled with a permanent foundation. Additionally, in the US, valuation differences between modular homes and site-built homes are often negligible in real estate appraisal practice; thus, modular homes can in some market areas [depending on local appraisal practices per Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice] be evaluated the same way as traditionally built dwellings of similar quality.

In Australia manufactured home parks are governed by additional legislation that does not apply to permanent modular homes. Possible developments in equivalence between modular and site-built housing types for the purposes of real estate appraisals, financing and zoning may increase the sales of modular homes.

STORM WATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS [SWMP] FEDERAL


STUDY CREDIT

In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] is charged with regulating stormwater pursuant to the Clean Water Act [CWA].

Visit The Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] Web Presence Off Site @ www.epa.gov

TBNC Edgemon Recreational Resorts, Plaid Shirt Country Club, Families Adventure Land Experience, Environmental Engineering, Site Design & Engineering Edgemon Arizona + California USA

The goal of the CWA is to restore all "Waters of the United States" to their "fishable" and "swimmable" conditions. Point source discharges, which originate mostly from municipal wastewater [sewage] and industrial wastewater discharges, have been regulated since enactment of the CWA in 1972.

Pollutant loadings from these sources are tightly controlled and limited. However, despite these controls, thousands of water bodies in the U.S. remain classified as "impaired," meaning that they contain pollutants at levels higher than is considered safe by EPA for the intended beneficial use of the water. Much of this impairment is due to polluted runoff.

Under the CWA, point source discharges to "Waters of the United States" require National Pollution Discharge Elimination System [NPDES] permits. To address the nationwide problem of stormwater pollution, Congress broadened the CWA definition of "point source" in 1987 to include industrial stormwater discharges and municipal separate storm sewer systems ["MS4"]. These facilities were required to obtain NPDES permits. This 1987 expansion was promulgated in two phases: Phase I and Phase II. Phase I required that all municipalities of 100,000 persons or more, industrial dischargers, and construction sites of 5 acres [20,000 m2] or more have NPDES permits for their stormwater discharges.

Phase I permits were issued in much of the U.S. in 1991.

Phase II required that all municipalities, industrial dischargers, construction sites of 1 acre [4,000 m2] or more, and other large property owners [such as school districts] have NPDES permits for their stormwater discharges. Phase II rules came into effect in 2003.

EPA issued a new Construction General Permit [CGP] in July 2008. This permit expires in 2011 and continues the provisions of the previous permit. In December 2009 EPA issued new discharge standards, called effluent guidelines, for construction sites. These requirements set a new national minimum standard for erosion controls and sediment controls, and pollution prevention measures. The effluent guideline provisions will be incorporated into the next round of EPA and state general permits.

In 2009 EPA also launched the website "Watershed Central" to allow concerned public to develop plans to protect local watersheds and combat stormwater pollution.

STORM WATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS [SWMP] STATE OF ARIZONA

EPA has authorized forty-six [46] states to issue NPDES permits. In addition to implementing the NPDES requirements, many states and local governments have enacted their own stormwater management laws and ordinances, and some have published stormwater treatment design manuals. Some of these state and local requirements have expanded coverage beyond the federal requirements. For example, the State of Maryland requires erosion and sediment controls on construction sites of 5,000 sq ft [460 m2] or more.

It is not uncommon for state agencies to revise their requirements and impose them upon counties and cities; daily fines ranging as high as $25,000 can be imposed for failure to modify their local stormwater permitting for construction sites, for instance. REF:fines REF: CASQ

 

PUBLIC EDUCATION CAMPAIGNS

Education is a key component of stormwater management. A number of agencies and organizations have launched campaigns to teach the public about the problem, and how they can contribute to solving it.

The West Michigan Environmental Action Council [WMEAC] has coined the term Hydrofilth to describe stormwater pollution. This is part of their 15 to the River campaign. WMEAC has taken an active role in preventing Hydrofilth from striking again. They have created a rain barrel distribution program in which they teach people how to have and use a rain barrel in their backyard and educate them on the positive effects it has on combating storm water runoff. Also they have created a website teaching others about how to make their own rain garden. WMEAC as well as many other organizations such as the United States Environmental Protection Agency and Clean Water Action are educating people and communities about the problems with storm water runoff and its effects and what they can do in order to prevent further pollution of their waterways from it.

GREENBELT & PARKLAND DEVELOPMENT


STUDY CREDIT

A green belt or greenbelt is a policy and land use designation used in land use planning to retain areas of largely undeveloped, wild, or agricultural land surrounding or neighboring urban areas. Similar concepts are greenways or green wedges which have a linear character and may run through an urban area instead of around it. In essence, a green belt is an invisible line encircling a certain area, preventing development of the area allowing wildlife to return and be established.

 

PURPOSE OF GREENBELTS & LINEAR PARKLANDS

In those countries which have them, the stated objectives of green belt policy are to:

Protect natural or semi-natural environments;

Improve air quality within urban areas;

Ensure that urban dwellers have access to countryside, with consequent educational and recreational opportunities; and

Protect the unique character of rural communities that might otherwise be absorbed by expanding suburban development

The green belt has many benefits for people:

Walking, camping, and biking areas close to the cities and towns.

Contiguous habitat network for wild plants, animals and wildlife.

Cleaner air and water

Better land use of areas within the bordering cities.

The effectiveness of green belts differs depending on location and country. They can often be eroded by urban rural fringe uses and sometimes, development 'jumps' over the green belt area, resulting in the creation of "satellite towns" which, although separated from the city by green belt, function more like suburbs than independent communities.

 

THE LINEAR PARKLAND EXPERIENCE

A linear park is a park that is much longer than wide. It is often formed as a part of a rails-to-trails conversion of railroad beds to rail trail recreational use. Other linear parks make use of strips of public land next to canals, streams, electrical lines, highways and shorelines.

In some cities, many linear parks run through residential areas, where housing will front streets and back onto small linear parks containing a pathway, trees and grass. Examples are numerous in some Canadian cities such as Saskatoon.

In cities where the terrain is such that rivers and brooks have significant flood plains, the land cannot sensibly used for urban development and so can be set aside as a civic amenity. Milton Keynes in England makes extensive use of this design feature.

A parkway may refer to a road that is flanked on either side by a linear park, one of the first being the Bronx River Parkway through the Bronx River Reservation in the flood plain. These range from short urban ones like George Washington Parkway / Clara Barton Parkway in Washington, D.C. and Freedom Parkway in Atlanta (the previous alignment of a canceled freeway), to very long ones that are hundreds of miles or kilometers long. The longest is the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Natchez Trace Parkway is not far behind.

A greenbelt can also be considered a linear park, one currently being planned and built in sections is the Belt Line system in Atlanta, which will completely encircle its central business districts, and include a trail and eventual light rail line on existing tracks instead of another road.

OLD TESTIMENT GREENBELT HISTORY

The Old Testament outlines a proposal for a green belt around the Levite towns in the Land of Israel Moses Maimonides expounded that the greenbelt plan from the Old Testament referred to all towns in ancient Israel.

In the 7th century, Muhammad established a green belt around Medina. He did this by prohibiting any further removal of trees in a  twelve [12] mile long strip around the city.

In 1580 Elizabeth I of England banned new building in a three [3] mile wide belt around the City of London in an attempt to stop the spread of plague. However, it was possible to buy dispensations which reduced the effectiveness of the proclamation.

GARDEN OF GETHSEMANE

 


STUDY CREDIT

In modern times, green belt policy was pioneered in the United Kingdom in the 1930s after pressure from the CPRE and various other organizations. There are fourteen [14] green belt areas, in the UK covering 16,716 km², or thirteen [13%] percent of England, and 164 km² of Scotland; for a detailed discussion of these, see Green belt [UK].

Other notable examples are the Ottawa Greenbelt and Golden Horseshoe Greenbelt in Ontario, Canada. Ottawa's 20,350 hectare greenbelt is managed by the National Capital Commission [NCC]. The more general term in the U.S. is green space or greenspace, which may be a very small area such as a park.

The concept of "green belt" has evolved in recent years to encompass not only "Greenspace" but also "Greenstructure", taking into account all urban greenspaces, an important aspect of sustainable development in the 21st century. The European Commission's COST Action C11 [COST - European Cooperation in Science and Technology] is undertaking "Case Studies in Greenstructure Planning" involving fifteen [15] European Countries.

An act of the Swedish parliament from 1994 has declared a series of parks in Stockholm and the adjacent municipality of Solna to its north a "National City Park" called Ekoparken [the "Eco park"; it stretches from the parks surrounding the royal palaces of Ulriksdal and Haga in Solna, through the Brunnsviken area, down to the former royal hunting grounds of North and South Djurgården].

July 4, 1888, became the birthday of professional rodeo when a group of Prescott, Arizona, merchants and professional businessmen organized the first formalized "cowboy tournament" and offered cash prizes.

A cowboy named Juan Leivas walked off with rodeo's first professional title and was documented in the subsequent edition of the Arizona Journal-Miner. These "Cowboy Contests" continued and were planned, promoted and carried out by a committee of local merchants. From then on, rodeo has grown into a multimillion dollar enterprise with more than seven hundred [700] professional rodeos in fifty [50] states.

The act of rodeo is as old as cattle raising itself. Stemming out of the Spanish traditions of the vaquero, it has become a world phenomenon. But only in America has rodeo reached its zenith. Of all the sports that we the viewer, or the participant, have to choose from, no other is directly related to the natural world like rodeo. And unlike any other sport, rodeo is a reflection of the skills used in real life. The knowledge, tenacious spirit, and athletic ability are inherent in the ranching world and are exemplified in the competitive arena of the rodeo.

The earliest editions of Prescott's rodeo were mostly appealing to the local cowboys and ranchers because it gave them the chance to bring their ranch-bred skills to town for people to see. The fancy rodeo arenas that we know today were simply nonexistent in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Prescott's rodeo "arena" was merely a tract of land, in what was called Forbing Park, off of what today is, Iron Springs Road, very much unimproved, and roped off to keep the broncs from running away after they unseated their riders. Exact numbers of total contestants were often confused but total purses of less than one thousand [$1,000] dollars were common.

The name, Prescott Frontier Days, a committee of the Yavapai County Fair Association, came into being in 1913, the year the July 4th celebration began at its present location; then the Yavapai County Fairgrounds; today the Prescott Rodeo Grounds.

Participation by the likes of Tom Mix and attendance by celebrities such as Will Rogers increased the awareness and popularity of the event. 'Rodeo' is a Spanish word meaning "to roundup", and the word 'rodeo', for cowboy contests wasn't used anywhere until 1916. It was first used in Prescott in 1924.

Whereas the Yavapai County Fair ceased operation from 1933 until 1947, the rodeo continued uninterrupted and has never missed a year since 1888.

In the mid '30s, the Grandstand, the two Rock Buildings [today called the Pardee and the Freeman buildings], and the stone 'Fish Pond' were built at the existing site with the help of federally funded WPA and the CCC projects. Recovered artifacts from that construction are on display at the Smoki Museum today, along with other rodeo artifacts and memorabilia at Sharlot Hall and Phippen Museums. A week-long celebration marking fifty [50] years of Prescott rodeo was held in 1937. Several locals participated in the gala event and many former rodeo contestants helped put on festivities that also attracted thousands of Arizonans from around the state.

In July of 2008, the Prescott Frontier Days®, Inc. Committee was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colorado as one of only sixteen rodeos ever to have this honor bestowed upon them.

Prescott Frontier Days®, Inc., is an organization of people of all ages from the Prescott area. They give their time and talents, as volunteers, to put on a number of events each year. There are currently over two hundred [200] active members and during the peak period, around the 4th of July, that number swells with an additional seven hundred [700] volunteers, who typically stage a Golf Tournament, 10K Run, Arizona's second largest parade, the Prescott Frontier Days®, Inc Rodeo Parade, a Happy Hearts event for challenged children, an Old Timers Gathering, and of course, the eight [8] performances of the 'World's Oldest Rodeo®' followed by a Professional Bull Riding, the Cowboy Capital PBR event in August. The organization has a nine [9] member Board of Directors, including the President, and some forty-plus [40+] Chairmen of as many committees.

It serves people - it is the major economic engine for the surrounding communities that draws approximately 27,000 spectators for rodeo and an additional 25,000 in the other eleven [11] months of the year.

Prescott Frontier Days®, Inc. has been able to donate thousands of dollars in past years to organizations such as: the American Cancer Society, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund, Dress a Child, 4-H, Make a Wish Foundation, Miss Prescott Frontier Days Scholarship, Prescott Development Center, Prescott Fine Arts, Prescott Schools, Sharlot Hall Museum, Toys for Tots and the United Way, among others.

ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING

Environmental Planning concerns itself with the decision making processes where they are required for managing relationships that exist within and between natural systems and human systems. Environmental Planning endeavours to manage these processes in an effective, orderly, transparent and equitable manner for the benefit of all constituents within such systems for the present and for the future. Present day Environmental Planning Practices are the result of continuous refinement and expansion of the scope of such decision making processes.

Some of the main elements of present day environmental planning are:

Social & Economic Development / Urban Development & Redevelopment / Regional Development / Natural Resource Management & Integrated Land Use / Infrastructure and Intermodal Interconnectivity Systems / Governance Framework

The environmental planning assessments encompass areas such as land use, socioeconomics, transportation, economic and housing characteristics, air quality and air pollution, noise pollution, the wetlands, habitat of the endangered species, flood zones susceptibility, coastal zones erosion, and visual studies among others, and is referred to as an Integrated Environmental Planning Assessment [IEPA].

In the United States, for any project, environmental planners deal with a full range of environmental regulations from federal to state and city levels, administered federally by the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA].

A rigorous environmental process has to be undertaken to examine the impacts and possible mitigation of any construction project. Depending on the scale and impact of the project, an extensive environmental review is known as an Environmental Impact Statement [EIS], and the less extensive version is Environmental Assessment [EA]. Procedures follow guidelines from National Environmental Policy Act [NEPA], State Environmental Quality Review Act [SEQRA] and/or City Environmental Quality Review [CEQR], and other related federal or state agencies published regulations.

The Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP) is a non-profit organization of interdisciplinary professionals including environmental science, resource management, environmental planning and other professions contributing to this field. AEP is the first organization of its kind in the USA, and its influence and model have spawned numerous other regional organizations throughout the United States. Its mission is to improve the technical skills of members, and the organization is dedicated to "the enhancement, maintenance and protection of the natural and human environment". From inception in the mid 1970s the organization has been closely linked with the maintenance of the California Environmental Quality Act [CEQA], due to California being one of the first states to adopt a comprehensive legal framework to govern the environmental review of public policy and project review.
