Big happenings at Big Park Regional Council
The Big Park Regional Coordinating Council (BPRCC) met Thursday, Feb. 11, at the Sedona Fire Department Station Three. BPRCC is comprised of representatives from our HOAs and designated neighborhoods, local business groups and educational districts with a 28 voting entities.
Our mission is to keep you informed about items of interest happening in our community and to serve as an interface with Yavapai County. Please feel free to contact either your HOA or neighborhood representative or Info@BigParkCouncil.org to get on the agenda, volunteer, or to ask a question.
Sedona Village Business Association President Ken Rouse spoke about the proposed Visitor Center for the Big Park/Village of Oak Creek that will be located in The Collective (formally Tequa). Coming soon are new opportunities for shopping, dining, events and volunteering.
Joanne Kendrick delivered some very delightful news. The International Dark Skies Association has recognized the Big Park/Village of Oak Creek area as a Dark Skies community.
This can assist with eco-tourism and serve as a draw of distinction for our area. Thank you Joanne for your excellence in service!
Sgt Dan Winslow with the Yavapai County Sheriff's office announced that Tara Brooks is joining the staff in the Big Park/Village of Oak Creek area to assist with our calls. Welcome to Tara!
We as a community contribute a great deal of money to different taxing entities. School districts, colleges, counties, state, and federal agencies receive funds from our property taxes, licensing fees and sales tax .... to name a few of these groups. A question was raised with regards to funding for Yavapai College.
The Executive Board of BPRCC will take a look at this issue at the next executive session and will report back at the next general council meeting March 10th at 9AM at Sedona Fire Department Station #3.
