Committed to preserving the lifestyle & spirit of Williamson Valley
WVCO Inc. is a community based volunteer organization [see ABOUT US]
with the original mission of developing a Williamson Valley Community Plan, to get it adopted as part of the Yavapai County General Plan, and continue to serve as a voice for Williamson Valley residents. Williamson Valley residents, in several surveys, clearly indicated that they want to preserve their rural residential lifestyle and the scenic values of their valley. During 2005-2006, volunteer residents of the WV Corridor Planning Steering Committee developed a Community Plan based on three surveys and community input at three public meetings. The Community Plan was submitted to several government agencies and interested organizations for comment, and their comments were incorporated in the final draft Community Plan [see COMMUNITY PLAN
]. The proposal to adopt the Plan as a Community Plan amendment to the Yavapai County Plan was denied by the County Board of Supervisors on Monday, March 1, 2010.
While the Community Plan was rejected by Yavapai County, the Plan continues to document the desire of a majority of the residents to maintain the scenic, rural and residential character of the area. The Plan serves as a guide for government officials and community residents in making decisions about the future growth of the area.
