Two Neighborhood Watch meetings slated for Flagstaff

FLAGSTAFF—Coconino County Sheriff Bill Pribil and two of the county supervisors are encouraging members of two communities in Flagstaff to attend a Neighborhood Watch meetings in their areas.

Neighborhood Watch is similar to the Block Watch program many people might remember from thirty-years ago. Residents will learn how to observe and report suspicious activity as an effective means of preventing criminal activity.

The first meeting will be June 4 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Summit Fire Station 33 for members of the Timberline and Fernwood communities. The station is located at 6050 Firehouse Lane off of north Highway 89. Sheriff Pribil and members of his staff will join County Supervisor Liz Archuleta at the meeting.

The second meeting for the Doney Park neighborhood will be held on Thursday, June 6 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Cromer School, 7150 E. Silver Saddle Road. County Supervisor Mandy Metzger will join Sheriff Pribil and his deputies for this meeting.

At the meetings, the Supervisors will also discuss county issues. County Parks and Recreation director Judy Weiss asks input on how to use the $500,917 directed to revitalize the Peaks View County Park at 8805 N. Koch Field in Flagstaff. “We are asking residents what new features or recreational amenities they would like to see in the park,” she is quoted as saying.

Residents can also send input concerning the park by email to or the County’s Community Voice Website.
