The Build Up: Cottonwood's Development Services busy again

Jon Hutchinson
Staff Reporter

COTTONWOOD -- Construction is picking up speed in Cottonwood. There are now clear signs that the economy is on the rebound.

New residential construction is being regularly permitted in the Grey Fox, Mesquite Hills and Terra Verde-2 subdivisions in Cottonwood.

Discount Tire was among the first major new businesses to open a newly constructed shop and show room, but construction is well advanced for a new a Hyundai showroom for the Larry Green dealership.

A grading permit has been issued to establish an equipment yard for the proposed Minerals Research and Recovery operation. The work area is newly fenced. A building permit has been applied for recovery equipment on the property but has not yet been issued. Cottonwood Development Services officials says some of the slag material must be moved first in order to begin construction.

Originally based at a former mining operation in Ajo, the company acquired rights in 2007 and 2008 to the former United Verde Exploration slag pile behind the Verde Valley Fairgrounds. The company is planning a reclamation of the slag to use as aggregate material in roofing and abrasives. The new Cottonwood plant would open as the slag in Ajo is exhausted.

Company project Manager Tom Hurkett says it will still take 18 months before the plant is operational.

Century 21 has completed its remodeling of offices at Mingus and SR 89A.

A pet supply store named PetSense has submitted plans to occupy Units 4 and 5 of the Fry's Shopping Center.

Another Fry's Center unit is being occupied by the Yogurt Company, which was to hold a grand opening this weekend.

The Fry's Supermarket itself is undergoing an extensive internal remodeling, with reconstruction underway overnight.

Two mixed-use residential and commercial complexes, both designed by Reynold Radoccia, are going up. Gateway Green Phase 1 is under construction at Main and Eighth Street, at the gateway to Old Town.

A similar project all-green LEED-certification proposed, with commercial on a ground floor and residential housing on the second floor has been approved and construction permitted north of AllMed off Mingus Avenue in Cottonwood

Vinne's is re-constructing its New York Pizzeria in the Clemenceau Plaza at Sixth and SR 89A.

Fire Mountain Wine Tasting is opening at 1010 N. Main St.

And the city has given a certificate of occupancy to Yavapai Herbal Services, a medical marijuana dispensary to be located on Cottonwood Street. The operation still gets final approval from the State Health Department.
