Coconino County has awarded MAKERS Architecture & Urban Design the contract for the county’s Joint Land Use Study (JLUS), which is part of $532,700 in grant money received from the Department of Defense.
The Coconino County board of supervisors recently announced it awarded MAKERS the contract for the study after soliciting proposals from consultants since April.
“We are pleased to have MAKERS working with the County, the City of Flagstaff and the community on this important study,” Matt Ryan, vice chair of the board and District 3 supervisor, said in a press announcement.
The JLUS will help obtain land-use recommendations that are compatible with Camp Navajo and the Naval Observatory Flagstaff Station’s military missions, as well as help support economic development and community values, according to the county.
“Our military installations are vital to our economic vitality and our national security and an integral part of Coconino County. It’s important that we all work together,” Ryan said in the announcement. “MAKERS has a solid team of experienced professionals and is prepared to conduct the extensive public outreach we requested to develop recommendations.”
