Today, the Mohave County Board of Supervisors made history. By voting unanimously to accept the offer from the Jerry Ambrose Veterans Council to buy the old Arnold Plaza at 301 and 315 Oak St., they have commenced another major step in the revitalization of the City of Kingman’s historic downtown district.

The folks moving in to the new JAVC complex provide services for veterans. There will also be interim housing for veterans as they receiving support, process employment applications and get their feet back on the ground. I am working with Veteran’s groups to help meet the needs of veterans now.

I am proud that our Veterans are being well taken care of and serviced. It also prompts us to find a really good solution for parking. As Kingman continues to grow and move forward, we have to address issues like, where is everyone going to park? Where can people park without blocking our merchants’ customer parking? In my eyes, this is a really good problem to have to solve.
