Effort Moves Forward

Residents Against Irresponsible Development (RAID), a city government watchdog group, turned in 686 unverified signatures for a ballot referendum to the city of Kingman Thursday afternoon. The group needs 461 signatures, or 10 percent of voters, to put the City Council’s recent rezoning of 15 acres for a strip mall on the May ballot. John Short, part owner of the proposed property at Airway Avenue and North Castle Rock Road, said Thursday the shopping center developer has pulled out because of a lack of community support.
