These new monuments are planned to ensure that Prescott Valley's boundaries are clearly delineated
The Prescott Valley Town Council on Thursday awarded a contract to Flouresco Services for the construction and installation of two Town monument signs to be placed at the east and west entrances to the community – one just West of the State Route 69/169 intersection and the other near Victorian Estates.
The Fiscal Year 22/23 budget includes the design, construction, and installation of two entrance signs on Highway 69 and an entrance archway at the south side of Glassford Hill Road. The Town received two responses from sign companies after issuing a Request for Proposals in August 2022.
Phase 1 of the project, including fabrication and installation of the entrance monument signs, will begin immediately. The future Phase 2 will involve an entrance arch spanning Glassford Hill Road. Town staff is currently in negotiations for easements needed for sign installation. The Phase II archway construction is expected to take place in Fiscal Year 23/24 in conjunction with the grand opening of the newly surfaced Glassford Hill Road.
The new monument and archway signs are planned to ensure that Prescott Valley’s boundaries are clearly defined, and to provide entry features that stand apart from other area cities and towns. Residents in roundtable sessions have repeatedly commented on the need for Prescott Valley to improve its “curb appeal” along Highway 69 and provide entry monuments. Prescott Valley is committed to developing its tourist offerings and providing visitors with a memorable experience. The monument and arched signs are the beginning of a multi-pronged tourism development plan to help diversify Prescott Valley’s economy and create a positive identity.
