BEAVER CREEK VISION 2020

Vision Statement

 

The Beaver Creek Community enjoys friendly neighborhoods, a quiet lifestyle, and many cultural and historical assets they wish to preserve. They value the creek that runs through the area, uniting the communities with a common name. While realizing the need for additional services in our communities, residents expect planned, responsible growth.

 

The Beaver Creek Community recognizes that growth is inevitable but it must be planned growth. Private property rights should be balanced with community needs. When making Land Use decisions it is important to residents to consider local water availability and protect our dark skies. Preservation of Rimrock Airport is important for its historic and emergency medical aspects. Compatible commercial development could be categorized as small shops and services, a grocery store, tourism and agriculture, and home-based businesses. Single family homes are preferred over multi-family or clustered multi-family.

 

Improved access in and out of the area and/or alternate routes was determined as very important along with public transportation.

 

Residents in the communities treasure the open spaces offered here, the beautiful vistas, and favorite recreational spots. Public parks, limited Forest Service swaps for public lands, and continued open space in future housing developments are important to the residents.

 

Preservation of Wet Beaver creek and the protection of Montezuma Well’s aquifer are important to the Beaver Creek Community. Household water conservation needs to be promoted as well as the use of gray water and harvesting of rain water. Areas for further study are: adequate water supply, quality of creek water, seasonal flooding and drainage, and the need for waste water treatment facilities.

History of Vision 2020

Vision 2020 kicked off December 4th 2007 at the Ranch House Restaurant with an organization meeting. Yavapai County and community organization representatives were present.  The first order of business was to begin putting together a survey to determine issues and goals important to the community.  An initial survey was put together in May 2008.  The survey was presented to a focus group representing a cross-section of residents from Beaver Creek – elderly, young, long-time residents, newcomers, Hispanic, Native American, etc.  After the focus group meeting the survey was revised and mailed out to the community early September 2008. The results were tabulated by Brandon Vaughn, an outside consultant and presented to the committee in late September 2008.  On November 15,  the committee held a community meeting at Beaver Creek School.  The meeting was facilitated by the League of Women Voters and Yavapai Community College.  Approximately 125 attended and made great contributions to the plan.  During the 2 year period, the committee and various other sub-committees researched the first part of each element entitled, ‘Current Conditions’. Great care was given to each element to insure the current condition sections of the element were accurate.  With the completion of the survey and the community meeting the task turned to distilling all the information into issues and goals consistent with the desires of the community. Each element was reviewed, re-written, and re-written again and again in an effort to get it right.  Yavapai County was represented by Tammy DeWitt who proved to be an invaluable asset and resource, taking on the task of formatting Vision 2020, giving it a unified look.
