[ARCHIVED] Prop. 403 Open House is Tonight (Weds. 10/15) at Public Works

The Coconino County Public Works Department will host an Open House event from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 15 to educate the public and children about Prop. 403 and the County’s roadway system and maintenance equipment.

The open house will have many attractions for children, including a variety of road maintenance big-rigs to climb and view up close. Kids can enjoy play and learning stations such as “Build a Road Boulevard,” “Plow Junction” and “Mechanicsville.” The stations are designed to teach children about the importance of county roads, how they’re built and maintained.

Kids can earn their road maintenance certificates, hard hats, receive activity books and have their pictures taken on a backhoe.

Public Works staff will also be present with an array of information about Proposition 403 and how it will impact road maintenance services, including snow plowing, road grading and pothole filling operations around the County. Furthermore, a map will be displayed showing the proposed road projects to be constructed if the ballot measure is approved.

If approved by voters, sales tax revenue from Proposition 403 will only be used to repair and service County-maintained roads.

Public Works is located at 5600 E. Commerce Avenue. A map to the facility is available via the "Additional Info." link.
