City of Cottonwood Current Proposed Annexations
The City of Cottonwood is initiating annexation of several properties in three separate areas along the Verde River (please see maps below). Most of these parcels are owned by the State Parks Board, but some private parcels are included as well in order to meet the annexation requirements of State law. No parcels outside the solid black annexation area border on the maps are being considered for annexation.
The City Council will hold a public hearing to discuss the annexation proposal on April 5, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. at the City Council Chambers, 826 N. Main Street in Cottonwood. All interested persons are encouraged to attend this hearing. Material relating to the annexation is available for review from 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Thursday, and Fridays from 7:00 AM to 12:00 PM, at the Cottonwood Community Development Department, 111 North Main Street in Cottonwood, or call (928) 634-5505.
Swimming Pools can be fun and safe
Swimming pools can be great fun for everyone especially during the hot summer months however, safety precautions must be followed at all times. It is important for people with backyard pools to realize how easy it is for children to wander into a yard or through a back door to a pool. Unfortunately, it only takes seconds for a child to drown. Children should never be left unattended around water even for a few seconds. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death in Arizona for children under age 5. Storage Sheds/Detached Accessory Structure
