After a two-day retreat, the Yuma City Council identified its priorities for going forward. The officials would like to focus on downtown and riverfront development, support the Yuma Multiversity Campus and spaceport efforts, prepare industrial sites to attract businesses, and update zoning regulations.
Julia Novak of the Novak Consulting Group led the council in strategic planning retreat. On Tuesday, she polled the councilors on their priorities. They were surprised by how they all seem to be on the same page.
“I’m surprised by how everyone is thinking along the same lines,” Deputy Mayor Karen Watts said.
