Commentary: Big Park conversion to charter school a detriment to school district

In the Oct. 1 issue of The Villager, David Gill, on behalf of the Big Park Education Exploratory Committee, advocated that the Sedona-Oak Creek School District lease the Big Park School to a charter school organization.

Letter: 'Easy pass' system perfect for 'Locals Bridge'

Regarding the “Locals Bridge” at Red Rock Crossing. I think that would be a great idea. It would be easy to monitor with the same technology that “easy pass” uses. Locals that want to use it would pay an annual fee to help maintain the system.

Letter: Give locals a transmitter to allow bridge crossing

I have avidly followed the continuing (vociferous) debate regarding the VOC residents and the horrific increase in tourist traffic which negatively impacts the lifestyle and safety of the VOC residents.

Don't allow VOC to become victim of 'induced demand'

In the Oct. 1 edition of The Villager, Bill Chameides was attacked and misrepresented, unfairly in my opinion. Ms Lovitt called some of his comments, about new roads increasing traffic, “unfounded and absurd."

Letter: There must be better solutions than route on Verde Valley School Road

I am writing as a very concerned homeowner along the Verde Valley School Road corridor in the Village of Oak Creek. My wife and I moved to VOC due to its small-town atmosphere, close proximity of needed commercial enterprises and lack of vehicle congestion.

Letter: Stop allowing development to take priority over quality of life

Reference Letter entitled: Every possible option to solve traffic woes deserves consideration: I would like to express my agreement with Ms. Ruthmary Lovitt.
