October has been a very busy month for the Arizona Peace Trail!… La Paz County applied for 2 different grants, one being through Yamaha, seeking funding to help with signage to be placed on County roads with the Arizona Peace Trail sign. The successful amount awarded to the County was $ 4,980.92.  Yamaha requested to be shown on the signage as well!! …

The second grant  applied for by La Paz County, was from the Arizona State Parks. Supervisor Holly Irwin  attended the “Off Highway Vehicle Advisory Group” (OHVAG) meeting where this application was being considered. This application proposed 2 projects;  for the Arizona Peace Trail – To construct a staging area, bathrooms, picnic tables along with Ramada’s and trash containers in Cibola (at the area known as the  “Hippie Hole”). As part of another project 6 years in the making with the County, it is an  alternative route on the Arizona Peace Trail. The “Hippie Hole” area does include trails in need of repairs. The OHVAG showed enthusiasm for this project and voted unanimously to fund and awarded $74,414.   Total project amount is for $90,000. The County will be able to use “in-kind” services which means no cost to the taxpayers for this project!!
