Early stumble for 89 and Vine

COTTONWOOD -- Morgan Scott, Cottonwood's Developmental Services Manager, reports that the wine-themed subdivision proposed as 89 & Vine to be developed on the north side of Cornville Road, opposite Verde Santa Fe, has bogged down in its transportation planning.

The Traffic Impact Analysis, submitted to the State Department of Transportation for review, has apparently been rejected.

Scott advised the Verde Valley Transportation Planning Organization that the joint partnership between Republic Properties and Brookfield Homes will now have to start the impact assessment from scratch.

The rejection affects the plan that not only addresses the state highway access, but also internal road commitment.

It had been thought that after the recent presentation to Cottonwood Planning Commission and City Council, that the project could begin the lengthy permitting process.
