FENCING YOUR PROPERTY
American Fence and Prescott Fence Company are notorious for not getting a fence permit from Yavapai County and submitting the paperwork to the POA. Please be advised of the following: A permit is needed from Yavapai County for any fencing over 50 lineal feet. The permit paperwork must be submitted to the POA office along with the permit application and a $50 fee. It is the responsibility of the property owner to acquire the Yavapai County permit from the fence company and submit it to the office. Any fencing installed without the Proper permits will cause an initial fine equal to the Cost of the Initial Permit Fee to be placed on the property owners account and possible fines from Yavapai County.

URGENT PLEA TO ALL RESIDENTS!
The Prescott Country Club Board of Directors and Management are begging every resident to SLOWDOWN!
On Sept 2 the second high-speed fatality in our subdivision took place on Old Chisholm Tr. The POA, in conjunction with Yavapai County, installed a radar speed sign that is rotated around several locations in the PCC. Data collected from the sign typically reflects 8% of vehicles are driving at excessive speeds. The posted speed limit is 25MPH! Fortunately, The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Department has increased their presence in the Community and on Sept 15 I witnessed two vehicles stopped for speeding. I was also told a ticket was given to a person who was going 5MPH over our 25MPH speed limit. This is good news and will hopefully slow people down.
WALKERS TAKE NOTE – Walk against the traffic, so you can see what’s coming at you. It would be best if you avoided walking on Old Chisholm, Manzanita and Turquoise. Think about changing your route to the side streets where you would be more safe.
It is up to us as a community to come together and be aware of our surroundings, think about the safety of those around us and be considerate of our neighbors. Following the posted speed limit in the Community helps us all.
