Suzanne Adams-Ockrassa Miner Staff Reporter
A new fire station is in the works for the Golden Valley area.
The Mohave County Planning and Zoning Commission Wednesday will consider a request from the Golden Valley Fire Department and the Gross family to trim a two-acre plot of land off of a larger 10-acre parcel in order to build a new fire station.
The station would be located at the southeast corner of Bacobi Road and Chino Drive.
The commission will also hear a request from several residents of the Triangle Airpark located east of U.S. 93 and north of White Hills Road to rezone their properties from residential/recreational to general manufacturing. The residents are requesting the change so they can develop aircraft-related businesses, store equipment and improve the airport.
The commission has received at least five letters objecting to the changes. A number of the letters state that the residents requesting the rezone want it so they can either continue to store junk on their property or store more junk on their property.
According to information given to the commission, some of the properties have been in violation of the county's open lot storage ordinance, which governs the storage of parts, equipment and other items on a property. Some of those violations have been resolved.
Other letters object to increased development in the airport because the area does not have the infrastructure in place or the funding to install the infrastructure necessary to improve the airport.
The commission will also hear a request for a rezone of a parcel on U.S. 93 near the Mineral Park/Chloride area to allow the expansion of a waste-hauling business.
Planning and Zoning Commissioner Krystal Symonds is making the request on the behalf of Westside Disposal. The company wants to expand its business to include a recycling center.
The commission meets at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the County Administration Building, 700 W. Beale St.
