Clarkdale to see major improvements to Centerville Road/Avenida Macias intersection

During the second and third quarters of 2012, the Town of Clarkdale conducted several neighborhood meetings and surveys relating to continued access through the intersection at Centerville Road/Avenida Macias.

While several steps were taken over the past year to address concerns brought forward by residents, the town also committed to secure property necessary to make the intersection more functional.

As a result, the Mountain Gate Development Agreement was amended earlier this year and it required the new developers of the project to make improvements and widen the intersection.

Residents that use the road will see construction mobilization beginning Aug. 1, and construction grading starting Aug. 5. Completion of the improvements is anticipated within 60 days, and is being undertaken by BC Land Group, the developers of the Mountain Gate Subdivision.

Long term, the Town of Clarkdale continues to plan for Centerville Road to be extended on the north side of the Centerville Subdivision so that it will have a direct connection to State Route 89A. That road extension, which is called for in the Clarkdale General Plan, is also a requirement of the Mountain Gate Development Agreement and will take place at later stages of the development.

For questions about this project, please contact the Clarkdale Public Works Department at (928) 639-2550.

Since the Independent/Town still hasn't responded to questions about Clarkdale's budget elsewhere, I suppose I'll try asking them again here. Maybe they just missed the earlier requests?

According to the Town's published revised budget, the Town earned $42,540 in cemetery revenue (almost twice what was expected). Why then is the cemetery overgrown with weeds, untrimmed trees, broken/disfigured tombstones, and sunken graves?

Why has the Town been silent on exactly where the listed "Other" donation of $500,000 in FY 2013 was to have come from, what it's stipulations would have been, and why it never materialized? While we're at it, what about the phantom $95,000 Parks and Rec donation listed?

Why has there been no discussion or explanation of the Town running $88,110 over budget in FY2013 in the Town Clerk, Human Resource, and Community Development departments?

There's plenty more questions that should be asked based on even a cursory examination of the recently published budget, but let's give the Town and/or the Independent time to explain...
