Commercial uses will utilize 403 acres. Parks and open space will comprise 386 acres. Silverado is envisioned as the eastern residential and commercial gateway to Mohave County and will offer affordable housing and amenities for those wishing to retire to the Southwest and for those who wish to commute to the Kingman area.

  • The ALBIASA-TROUGH: Advantages through Structure, Performance and Cost:

    Torque tube design patented by ALBIASA High torsion and flexion resistance tested for 30 year design life Ease of manufacture and assembly Better optical performance than industry leaders

    Benefits of Advantage: Much lower cost Faster plant assembly

    The ALBIASA- ASSEMBLY LINE: ALBIASA has developed an innovative assembling line, making it possible to fully

    assemble a module, including mirrors in 15 minutes. This represents the best in the industry.

  • Considerations to Identify Potential Traffic Interchange Locations

    Existing and future land ownership and land use

    Existing and proposed land developments

    Traffic impacts of proposed and potential future developments

    Existing and proposed roadways and travel patterns are considered

    Major Factors Warranting a Future Traffic Interchange

    Roadway and intersection crash rates

    Heavy traffic volumes projected on the mainline and cross roads

    For Rural Traffic Interchanges, ADOT Guidelines recommend a desirable spacing of 5 miles and a minimum of 2 miles.

  • Goals and Policies Suitable for Transportation taken from the Northwest Committees April 15, 2008 Vision

    Exercise for Natural Resources Provide hiking and cycling trails. Provide Equestrian trails. Consider increased use of public transportation to avoid

    heavy traffic and air pollution.

    Additional Considerations:Specific road improvement projects to correct deficiencies

    in construction and geometry?Vegetative buffers along/within the right-of-way? Guidelines for Off-Highway Vehicles?

  • Transportation Goals Inspired by the Long Mountain AP

    Maintain a reasonable free-flow of traffic along all County Maintained within the Planning Area.

    Reduce automobile dependency for short trips under one mile.

    Transportation Goals Inspired by the Golden Valley AP Improve existing roadways connecting to US Highway 93 to serve

    as access or frontage roads to avoid unnecessary highway trips and to provide an alternate access for those properties frontingalong the highway.

    Upgrade roadway network to meet County design criteria for safe travel.

    Preserve and enhance existing trails throughout the Planning Area.

    Establish new trails to create a comprehensive trail network throughout the Planning Area.

  • Goals and Policies Suitable for Transportation taken from the Access Management Studies

    Develop frontage roads or alternative access ways to reduce direct access to the highway and provide access to US Highway 93 at identified major access points (DMJM).

    Provide Safe and Efficient Access to the Highway Construct dedicated turning lanes on the crossroads at their

    intersections with the highway (DMJM). The minor street approach to each intersection should provide

    one shared through/left turn lane and one right turn lane (DMJM).

    And, after Committee Debate on 4/23/2009 Locate Traffic Interchanges in accordance with the access needs

    of residents.

  • Goals and Policies Suitable for Transportation taken from the Access Management Studies

    A frontage road to connect Section 9 to either Upper Trout Creek Interchange at mile post 107.4 or the unnamed TI to its north at mile post 104.4 can be constructed parallel along the east side of the highway (Jacobs).

    Proposed Frontage Road

    Proposed Frontage Road

  • Goals and Policies Suitable for Land Use taken from the Northwest Committees April 15, 2008

    Vision Exercise for Natural Resources Locations of development at future traffic interchanges

    should be planned not only north and south, but east and west as well, then feathering out to a lower density.

    Commercial development should have aesthetically compatible architecture (revised on 3/17/2009).

    Limit building heights.

    Additional Considerations:Residential density and lot sizesBuffers between residential and non-residential land uses.Designating areas for renewable energy projects.

  • Land Use Goals Inspired by the Long Mountain AP

    Maintain an Environment for Small Ranch Properties (5 acres or more in size = Rural Residential).

    Preserve the Rural to semi-Rural lifestyle for homes on smaller lots and parcels (1 to 5 acres in size = Suburban Estate and SuburbanResidential).

    Establish areas for urban density development which are a logical extension of the planned or existing development pattern.

    Establish Sufficient Public Facilities to Serve the Community.

    Reserve Public Lands for Recreation, Public Purposes & Preserves.

    Ensure Infrastructure Concurrency in all Development Areas.

    Encourage the construction of quality, affordable housing.

  • Land Use Goals Inspired by the Golden Valley AP

    Provide for highway-serving commercial business at established locations along the Corridor.

    Provide for general commercial and neighborhood serving businesses along Corridor.

    Create commercial recreational areas to serve local residents and tourists alike.

    Maintain the rural, low-density atmosphere in the Planning Area.

    Provide higher density residential development in areas that areexperiencing growth pressure.

    Create a diversified housing market to serve all members of the community.

    And, after Committee Debate on 4/23/2009 Create commercial centers extending up to one mile along the

    highway from either side of the Traffic Interchanges and up to one half mile off of the highway fronting along the cross roads.
