County to return 'meanderland' to Camp Verde

COTTONWOOD - At Monday's public meeting, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors are expected to approve quitclaim conveyance of a County-owned parcel to the Town of Camp Verde.

The parcel, APN 404-30-342, abuts the Verde River and is adjacent to property owned by the Town and used for recreational purposes.

The parcel was to have become Town property on Dec. 8, 1986, when the Board of Supervisors declared the incorporation of Camp Verde. APN 404-30-342 is adjacent to 404-30-197, a parcel located on S. River Cave Road that was relinquished to the Town at the time of incorporation.

The Camp Verde Town Council will then be required to acknowledge acceptance of the conveyance, which, Town Manager Russ Martin said, would likely happen at the Council's Nov. 6 regular session.

"This is a paperwork issue more than anything else," Martin said. "This should have been done in 1986. Somehow it was missed. But the oversight has been found and now we'll handle the transfer."

The Cartography Unit has identified APN 404-30-342 as a meanderland parcel. Meanderland is generally transferred by quitclaim deed. For several years, the Town has maintained both parcels and has restricted public access due to complaints about late-night parties. Restricting access to the Town-owned parcel has, by extension, limited access to county-owned parcel.

Martin also said that access to the parcel is not expected to change.

"We have no master plan for [the parcel]," Martin said. "Just to put it in the Town's hands, as it should have been all along. We have a responsibility to maintain it, to do with it what we have been doing for years."

The Yavapai County Board of Supervisors will meet at 9 a.m. Monday at the Yavapai County Administrative Services Verde Valley Complex Hearing Room, First Floor, located at 10 S. Sixth St. in Cottonwood.

Property owners bordering that land would like this land as their free buffer zone/private space. It ain't going to happen.
