Spring Creek Development Sent Back to Planning and Zoning

Sedona AZOn January 15, 2020 at the regular Yavapai County Board of Supervisors meeting in Cottonwood, applicants Eric and Lisa Borowsky requested a continuance for a zoning map change of approximately 282 acres, known as Spring Creek, until the March 18, 2020 Board of Supervisors meeting.

Yavapai County Development Services Director David C. Williams informed the Board that they could go ahead with the continuance or, by direction of the Board, remand the application back to the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z). He advised, “The Planning and Zoning Commission had reviewed the old plans, but had not seen the plans since the applicant made changes, based on public input.”

Yavapai County Board of Supervisor Vice-Chairman Randy Garrison said, “I really appreciate that the applicant has taken the concerns expressed in regards to this application seriously, and wants to reach out and engage our community in hope of finding some common ground and shared benefits.”

Supervisor Rowle Simmons made a motion to remand the application back to the Planning and Zoning commission, and Supervisor Thomas Thurman seconded the motion by stating, “I think this is the right thing to do since the applicant has made substantial changes to the original plan, and because the P&Z commission was mixed on their vote, they had not provided the Board with clear direction.”

The Board vote was unanimous in agreement and the application was remanded back to the Yavapai County Planning and Zoning commission.

The Arizona Republic and other news organizations are reporting “rabid” opposition to the Spring Creek and similar Yavapai County applications.

    Rabid is a mild word for what peoples feel. They want people to be put in tin cans ghetto patrolled by police like Mexican villages and they then can remove us from our affordable housing we pay for while working jobs in the towns. They put us in high rent tins we can’t afford to own and to far from town that forces us to buy cars we can’t afford. We live in town now and we can afford it. Why would we move out of town in cans and they take our homes and put up high rises with rents that are crazy high? We don’t live in a ghetto now, we live in Sedona and we like living in Sedona. We live in affordable homes on affordable land that wealthy people want to own. We will keep our views and closeness to stores. We will take your wealthy houses then and you go live in the tin cans ghetto. Nobody should live in a community with a thousand same looking tin cans. It’s ugly stupid. We need to live in town like we do. Racist city puts in high rises and builds liar housing.
