Ribbon-cutting set for Kingman Veteran Villas
KINGMAN – A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held for the new Kingman Veteran Villas, 2501 Veteran Way, at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 7, with numerous dignitaries set to be in attendance.
The county wrote in a news release that the project was a partnership between the Mohave County Housing Authority, the Veterans Administration, Arizona Department of Housing, American Express, Rocky Mountain Community Reinvestment Corporation and U.S. Bank. Adams Construction & Management Company of Utah built the facility.
Each of the villas’ 48 units contains 930-square feet of living area, along with central air and heat, and a single-car garage.
“The Kingman Veteran Villas features smart technology with hard-wired smoke detectors and an automatic sprinkler system,” the county wrote. “The stove automatically shuts off if the smoke detector is triggered or if it’s not turned off for an extended period. If the system detects a window is open, the AC or heat will shut off.”
Also scheduled for the ribbon cutting is a tour of the facility, during which time light refreshments will be served. Dignitaries scheduled to attend include Mohave County Supervisor Jean Bishop of District 4, Kingman Mayor Jen Miles, County Housing Authority Director Michael Smith and County Manager Sam Elters.
Speaking at the event will be Smith, president of Adams Construction Greg Wagner, and Karen Charles, HCHV supervisor. A villa resident will also speak, and Miles will provide a brief welcome.
