Density lowered again for proposed Mesa subdivision

Neighbors want even fewer houses built to preserve open space

Developers of a contentious subdivision plan for the southwestern corner of McKellips and Crismon roads have reduced the number of proposed lots for the second time in response to vehement opposition from neighboring neighborhoods.

Zoning attorney Ralph Pew, who represents landowner U.S. Development Land, presented a revised, 56-lot proposal at an east Mesa neighborhood meeting Tuesday. Developers in April had proposed to develop 80 lots on the 40-acre site, later revising that number to 68 lots in May.

Because only 36 lots are approved under the area’s General Plan, zoning requests to allow for a density of up to two units per acre and for more homes on the property will stand.

Proposed lot sizes would range from 10,000 to 12,000 square feet, with home sizes from 2,600 to 4,500 square feet. Homes would be clustered, leaving large swaths of natural land.
