CAMP VERDE - Continued efforts toward an intergovernmental agreement (IGA) between the State of Arizona and the seven jurisdictions impacted by proposed improvements on State Route 260 have been like a whirlwind tour, said Camp Verde Town Manager Russ Martin.

On Wednesday, the curtain may finally be coming down.

At its Jan. 15 regular session, the Camp Verde Town Council will decide whether or not to approve and execute the IGA between the Town of Camp Verde and Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) to define the responsibilities between the Town and ADOT for improvements to State Route 260 from Interstate 17 to Thousand Trails Road.

Camp Verde is the last of seven jurisdictions meeting to approve Resolution 2014-909. The Yavapai-Apache Nation, Yavapai County, City of Cottonwood, City of Sedona and Town of Jerome have all voted to approve their part of the IGA. On Jan. 14, the Clarkdale council discussed its part of the agreement.

In tonight's council agenda packet, Martin recommended that the council move to approve the resolution.

"I look forward to hearing council vote to move that forward," Martin said. "This bodes well for everybody.

Once all entities have officially approved their portions of the IGA, the state would widen SR 260 to four lanes of traffic between Thousand Trails Road (Cottonwood) and Wilshire Drive (Camp Verde). All jurisdictions would agree on the following stipulations:

• SR 260 will have a rural divided highway cross-section from Thousand Trails Road to Horseshoe Bend road;

• A fringe, urban cross-section will be added from Horseshoe Bend Road to Wilshire Drive;

• One westbound and one eastbound right-in/right-out and left-in only access point will be permitted between Horseshoe Bend Road and Wilshire Drive;

• Any additional access points will be limited to a right-in/right-out access will be limited to one quarter-mile minimum spacing;

• SR 260 intersections will be designed to maintain a level of service (LOS) B on main line (SR 260) for a minimum of 20 years. Large developments shall be responsible for constructing intersection capacity improvements to maintain LOS B on mainline SR 260;

• Seven full-access intersections will be constructed at: Thousand Trails Road (milepost 211.22), Coury Drive (milepost 211.95), milepost 214, milepost 215, Cherry Creek Road (milepost 215.93), Horseshoe Bend Road (milepost 216.78) and Wilshire Drive (milepost 218.30), each measured at plus or minus .1 miles.

At Wednesday's meeting, the council had planned to discuss and possibly direct Town Staff to prepare an ordinance recognizing civil unions in Camp Verde. However, the agenda item was moved to the council's next regular session, according to Mayor Charlie German.

The regular session will be held at 6:30 p.m. in council chambers, 473 S. Main St. #106. A copy of the agenda is available at:
