Sv Council Has General Plan Approval On Agenda


After dozens of corrections and changes and nearly four years of work, the Star Valley Town Council could finally adopt its first general plan.

The plan loosely outlines the town’s vision for growth over the next 10 to 20 years.

Although the town is not required to adopt a plan until its population grows to 2,500 residents, council and community members felt completing the plan was crucial to defining future growth.

Peter Armenta, community development director with Central Arizona Association of Governments, said it is possible Star Valley has reached 2,500 residents, but the town won’t know for sure until the 2010 Census results are released.

A draft of the general plan was first released in March of 2008. A committee planned to finish work on it within a year, but the results of a water study and subsequent computer crash delayed its completion.

Besides water, the general plan covers multiple areas of town development, including land, environment, circulation and zoning. It outlines current town conditions, guiding principles and future use.

Hear more about the plan at a public hearing at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Lamplighter RV Resort clubhouse, 3933 E. Highway 260.

The regularly scheduled meeting begins at 6:30 p.m., where the council could vote to adopt the plan. The council will also discuss selecting an auditing firm, streets and roads projects for 2010-2011 and crack sealing several town roads.
