After more than two years of waiting, Rescue Unwanted Furry Friends Foundation may finally get their zoning use permit.

The no-kill animal shelter goes before the Board of Supervisors today.

The County Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval for the permit last month with the condition that sanctuary owner Hillarie Allison get a health permit and make the shelter compliant with the American's Disability Act.

The Board will also consider two land donations.

The first is around 200 acres of land from Lingenfelter Investments for a new fairgrounds.

The county put out a bid for a new property for the county fairgrounds in March, shortly after the late Dr. John Lingenfelter offered 200 acres of property near the intersection of Route 66 and Mohave Airport Drive to the county.

Lingenfelter's gift came with a few requirements, most notably that Grace Neal Parkway, which borders the southern edge of the property, be developed from a two-lane dirt road into a four-lane county road from Stockton Hill Road to the Route 66 entrance of the Kingman Airport Industrial Park. Lingenfelter also stipulated that the property only be used for a multi-use fairgrounds and that the property revert back to his family if it is not developed within a certain timeline.

According to staff, a request for other donations of land was published on the county's website and in several local newspapers. The only offer the county got was from Lingenfelter.

The Board will also consider the donation of two parcels of vacant land, each just over two acres in size, from a Golden Valley resident. According to an email sent to staff, the resident can no longer afford to pay the taxes on the parcels and both are located in washes. In return the county would pay the $150 in property taxes on the parcels.

The Board will also consider approving a $500,000 agreement between the Mohave County Sheriff's Office and the Arizona Attorney General's Office for law enforcement in the Colorado City area.

It will also consider renting Davis Camp to Bullhead City for $23,735 for the city's annual river regatta.

The Board meets at 9:30 a.m. today at the County Administration Building, 700 W. Beale St.
