SUNDOG CONNECTOR CORRIDOR STUDY
In 2013, the City of Prescott and ADOT conducted the Sundog Connector Corridor Study (26MB, 216 page PDF). This project follows up that study by preparing a conceptual design for further consideration.
On May 10th our project’s Technical Advisory Team and chosen consultant, AECOM, met to kickoff this project and identify critical community stakeholders.
Stakeholders identified for this project include representatives from HOAs, local planning agencies, community and affinity interest groups, emergency response, and area businesses.
Q: What is a Design Concept Report?
A: A DCR records the design concepts for major aspects of the project that might be worth developing as detailed designs. This DCR will take place over the next 18 months.
Why We Engage Stakeholders in Our Planning Process
Stakeholders are a wealth of knowledge about current processes, historical information, and industry insight.
Reduce and Uncover Risks and Challenges
Identifying obstacles and developing a mitigation plan will dramatically increase the success of our project. Involving knowledgeable stakeholders during this process will help.
Increase Project Success
Getting buy-in by engaging stakeholders early and often, we have a better chance of meeting needs and expectations of the design concept.
Two Ends Constructed:
- Year 2000 – at E SR 69 near Home Depot
- Year 2010 – at Prescott Lakes Parkway
Study Area: 3.5 total miles
Stakeholders and the public are different subsets and require different communication strategies. To help engage and educate the public, CYMPO and AECOM will hold two public meetings and provide frequent information and updates through various means including social media, direct mail, this newsletter and more. Stay Tuned!
The following is a tentative timeline for the Sundog Corridor. Any updates to this timeline will be posted here.
