Work is progressing on a special improvement district in the Village of Oak, according to Big Park Regional Coordinating Council President Carolyn Fisher.

Yavapai County created the Red Rock Road Enhancement Special Improvement District to help manage road work along State Route 179 in 2008. Control will begin shifting to the local Big Park Regional Coordinating Council perhaps as early as December.As early as December, the council will tackle the issue of the Red Rock Road Enhancement Special Improvement District and shifting control of that district to the local level. The district, currently run at the county level, maintains the medians along the roadway through the VOC.

The district has been controlled by the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors for the last several years. Recently, however, the council worked to create a committee that worked with the county to review resumes of individuals interested in being on the initial special improvements district board, Fisher said. The duties of the special district board would be to maintain contracts for work done off the roadway.

“Thereafter it will be an elected board,” Fisher said. “We’re looking forward to having that finally come to fruition.”

While the council will conduct its next regular meeting Thursday, Nov. 8, the item will not appear on the agenda. It could appear for discussion in December, however.

    This SID is a cash cow when you consider the level of maintenance required. If the original median landscape would have included a fiber mesh sub-layer (below the granite filler) there would be NO weeds that are constantly popping up today. This would also have been "green-friendly" with less chemical usage. I close with 2 keywords: 100% Transparency and 1/4 Audits!
