Dolan Springs Community Council: The regular DSCC meeting was held June 6. This meeting was well attended, with several guest speakers present, including District No. 1 Supervisor Gary Watson, Kevin Davidson from Mohave County Development Services Department and "Annie" who has organized a group in Dolan Springs called "Annie's Marauders." Annie presented her ideas for a future Western Village complex to be built in Dolan Springs. For more information, her e-mail address is donorth2@msn.com. Kevin presented the June 2 draft of the U.S. Highway 93 Corridor Area Plan. He displayed the map and described the corridor plan for areas within the Dolan Springs area plan boundary. There will be a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. on June 23 of the Highway 93 committee at the County Administration Building. The plan will be presented to the public. A copy of the draft is available at the Dolan Springs Library. Take a look at the draft copy, and determine if you have questions or suggestions to present to the June 23 meeting. Kathy Long spoke about the latest status of the Dolan Springs Transportation project. She said there will be no money coming from WACOG in the foreseeable future. This is bad news for the many local residents who have been using this service. The Community Council donates to this cause on a monthly basis, and it is hoped that all organizations in Dolan Springs do the same. This is the only way many local residents can get to Kingman. Kathy and Kitty Boylin have worked very hard and have a strong desire to continue this service. The monthly cost of the operation is about $1,500. The income from riders is around $500. Kathy said they are reluctant to raise the fees, as most of the riders are senior citizens with limited incomes. Come on, Dolan Springs! You remember how hard we all worked to get this project up and running. It would be a shame to lose it now! Sue Baughman spoke about the "Open Spaces" plans for National Trails Day planned for Oct. 10. The committee is currently selling raffle tickets for the outstanding barbecue built by prisoners. Tickets can be had by calling Sue or e-mailing her for the details at (928) 716-3362 or itchyft2005@yahoo.com. John Ford spoke about the Taylor Mountain project. This is a worthwhile project that will add to the local economy.
