Kignman Crossing on Agenda...

Back in June I posted this article about the proposed Kingman Crossing Interstate 40 interchange that this little city is in dire need of.

Looks like the City Council will be deciding, possibly, on the future of this project tonight according to the Kingman Daily Miner.

If ever local politicians can pull their head out just long enough to do something right, tonight is a real opportunity to do so. If this project can become a reality it will mean more commercial property development in Kingman. It will also help redirect traffic and save time driving around the city, not to mention the time saved for emergency service vehicles that may mean the difference between life and death.

This is an investment the City of Kingman can make to see real returns. Currently Kingman only gets tax revenue from sales tax and impound fees from new construction. The proposed interchange will add incredible tax revenue opportunities, the citizens have been hearing rumors about Lowe's and Target wanting to move into the area but only if they were to get Interstate 40 frontage. Well this is it. Keeping our fingers crossed tonight.


Things seem to be headed in a positive direction. Read it.
