Coconino County Board Set To Vote On Regional Plan

By Elisha Dorfsmith

On Tuesday, December 3rd the Coconino County Board of Supervisors will vote on the County version of the Flagstaff Regional Plan. With only minimal public input from County residents, every indication points to the County Board approving the plan as written with no changes or corrections.

This is very bad news for all of us in the County, especially residents of Doney Park, Kachina, Mountainaire, Bellmont, Timberline, Fort Valley, etc. who will be directly impacted by the plan but will not have the opportunity to vote on it like Flagstaff residents will.

While there is talk about changing the law at the State level to ensure that County voters will get to vote on these issues in the future, these changes will not be completed in time for the December 3rd County Board vote. If County residents have concerns about the plan it’s going to come down to contacting the County Board and asking for changes. If they hear from enough people they may listen.

Read The Plan

Yes, the plan is long and it will take time to go through but it could potentially impact every part of your life. Everything from how long you wait in traffic during your commute to work to what you are allowed do with your own private property.

This plan was written by a very one sided committee who has a vision for the region that could drastically change everything we love and care about in our community. Be informed and aware of what they have planned for you.

Contact The County Board

Speaking at the County board meeting on December 3rd is key but I know many County residents are working or busy at 3:00 pm on a Tuesday. If you cannot attend and speak in person, please consider contacting the County Board and expressing your concerns.

You can find contact info for the County Board here:

Attend The Meeting

There will be a public comment period at the December 3rd County Board meeting. The meeting starts at 3:00 PM and will be held in the County public meeting room at 219 E. Cherry St.

Attending in person will have the biggest impact. If you are able, please make your voice heard.

    Elisha,
    You need to jump on this so-called “Regional Plan” BS. It’s nothing but boilerplate Agenda 21/ICLEI language and there needs to be an awareness-dump on the local plebs/proles as to what these “do-gooders” are up to. It’s also pure astroturf politics; pretending to be “local” when, in fact, it is an elite-driven, global plan coming to a village near you.

      I agree, the County especially needs to be exposed for passing this plan unchanged when corrections and adjustments were clearly needed. I have been waiting for the City Council to get done making changes to the City document before writing about the final draft. I need to read what voters will be voting on and go from there.
