CORNVILLE - There were no surprises in the annual election for the Cornville Community Association Wednesday.
Four candidates were nominated. Four candidates were elected. There were five available terms to fill.
Returning for another term are Stephen Cassagio, the Association's acting president, as well as Jim Lyons. Erik Haggard and Elayna Ontiveros.
Cassagio said the board will review nominations submitted by individuals to fill the remaining seat on the board.
Gregg Law and Jan Tomlinson did not seek re-election to the association board.
Gregg Law and Stephen Cassagio are also members of the Association's Planning and Zoning Committee.
As promised, Wednesday night residents were offered another opportunity to voice their opinions about the controversial zoning change requested by Camp Soaring Eagle. Two spoke in favor of the zone change on 14 acres of the former Living Waters Retreat land off North Aspaas Road. Three stood to oppose the zoning.
Connie Dedrick, a Cornville resident, is also a consultant for Camp Soaring Eagle. She said another community meeting would be held for North Aspaas Road residents on next Wednesday, April 16.
The Yavapai Planning Commission will make a recommendation on the zoning request for the County Supervisors Wednesday, April 23.

Thank you for your help Connie Dedrick! Your involvement with "getting the facts out" to the community of Cornville is commendable because it's not one-sided. Your expertize concerning Planning & Zoning is creditable and worthy of praise and your LOVE of our community continues to show in your work and belief that Camp Soaring Eagle is the best fit for this area.

For clarification, the Community Meeting scheduled for Apr 16th is being held on Willow Drive at the home of a supporter of CSE. (per his online post) I received my letter today from the Consulting Firm and Rose Law Firm and it explains that it is primarily for persons who have not attended any of the previous meetings. I was required to be notified because of my property's 1000 ft proximity to LW. I am sure that the proper canvassing of possible "supporters" for their request will allow them to drum up more support and the letter does explain that all the proper info will be available for discussion. Willow Dr has been mentioned in the LOI as a NON-ACCESS street. Hopefully CSE will provide maps to their guests and provide the N. Aspass residents the numbers of attendants at the "community meeting". Will they need high occupancy vehicles?
