The region’s main transportation-planning organization will add its concerns about the Kirkland Mine to those that have already been filed by the City of Prescott and other area officials and residents.

At an Aug. 16 meeting, the executive board of the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Planning Organization (CYMPO) voted 3-1 to send a letter to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) listing concerns about the mining operation being proposed in Kirkland.

Yavapai County Supervisor Craig Brown, who serves as the chairman of the CYMPO Board, told the audience that the county has “little to no jurisdiction (over the mine), except when it comes to the drive way.”
