A collection of north Scottsdale residents are calling into question a development proposal critics say is against the character of the existing neighborhood and behind-the-scene municipal moves on behalf of the developer of the project has some crying foul.
Leading the charge against a proposed 62-key timeshare resort property at Troon North on about 3 acres is Troon North Homeowners Association Vice President Manny Siprut.
“What is truly absurd about this is (the developer) hired a consultant who is a retired city planner,” Mr. Siprut said in an Aug. 1 phone interview. “He seems to have latched on to a potential loophole and these developers believe they can lump the unused density of the entire 55 acres that was originally designated for a resort.”
