Yavapai College Responds — Podcast February 24, 2014

The Yavapai College 10-Year Plan: Why It Is the Way It Is. Democratic Perspective‘s Mike Cosentino and Steve Williamson welcome Dr. Penelope (Penny) Wills, President of Yavapai College, and Harold Harrington, member of the Yavapai College District Governing Board from District 2, to address the controversy over the College’s 10 year Capital Improvements Master Plan approved by the Board in December, 2013. What is the rationale behind the plan? Is the consolidation of physical facilities in the Prescott/Prescott Valley area a reasonable response to projected economic and demographic trends in the county? If so, can the projected level of services to the eastern half of the county really be compatible with the transfer of tax revenues implied by the disparity in capital improvements expenditures expressed in the plan? The College responds.
