CAMP VERDE - At Wednesday's town council regular session, Camp Verde Town Manager Russ Martin took a moment to reiterate the need for Camp Verde residents to speak up about State Route 260.

Martin reminded the council of the Arizona Department of Transportation's final public hearing on the five-year plan in Flagstaff, scheduled for 9 a.m. on May 10. The meeting will be at the Flagstaff City Council chambers, 211 W. Aspen Ave., in Flagstaff.

Recently, the Cottonwood City Council agreed to help Camp Verde lobby the State Transportation Board for funds to complete the widening of SR 260 from Thousand Trails to Camp Verde. Cottonwood and Camp Verde will split the cost of a consultant and lobbyist.

"One of the missing pieces to that puzzle is to get 'Joe Public' out there to that particular meeting," Martin said. "It will mean a lot when you show up, and it will mean a lot when I show up. It will mean a lot when property owners show up. It will mean a lot when all the other elected officials show up.

"Apparently, what drives the needle is when the general public can show up," Martin said. "I encourage you or any public out there that's interested that would like to be of some assistance to get that done.

"This is a real opportunity for you to go to a meeting and really help try to make SR 260 a reality, sooner and in full. So if you are concerned about the safety at SR 260, don't just rely on your elected officials or myself or property owners to win the day."
