Protection of aesthetic values must not take a back seat to commercial development
The RV park going in next to 89A in Clarkdale just before the bridge over the river to Tuzigoot does a disservice to the Verde Valley area.
This special view shed should have been enough to prohibit such a use of that land. Further, an RV park in sight of one of our most sacred cultural sites makes it profoundly distasteful.
Protection of aesthetic values must not take a back seat to commercial development.
And community development offices should always take steps to inform the public, including all of the relevant arguments for and against such development.
