TRIBE INITIATES INFILL PROJECT TO HELP FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
PRESCOTT, Ariz. (April 10, 2003) – In a mutually beneficial agreement, the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe and Fann Construction have struck a deal that will enable the contractor to dispose of massive amounts of infill and help the Tribe plan for future economic development.
Fann Construction is in the process of site development
for the future
"We saw this as an excellent business opportunity for the Tribe," says President Ernie Jones. This parcel was always earmarked for commercial development and this allows us to save time and money, and gives us a prime location for future development. Preparing land for development can be a costly affair, but by taking the dirt that Fann needs to get rid of anyway, we get it at a good price and save them from having to truck it elsewhere. It is a win-win situation.”
According to Jones, the Tribe does not have firm plans on developing the land, however, is certain thatbased on growth patterns and projected commercial land needsthe parcel is prime acreage. In the meantime, based on inquiries and the curiosity of area residents, he wanted to share the "dirt" as to what the activity was all about.
Inquiries about this site should be directed to the Tribal Real Estate Department at 445-8790, ext. 169.
