Mesa City Council will consider a plan that will subdivide the last portion of the Mulberry Master Planned Community. If approved, Mulberry Parcel #5 will transform 27 acres of native desert into the Arbor Collection of Homes, adding 148 single-family residences at the NEC of Crismon and Guadalupe roads.
The plan revises an approved rezoning from Aug. 2014 that would have created a high-density development on Parcel #5. Instead of the previously approved 15 dwelling units per acre, the plan will bring an average of 5.5 units per acre, staying with SFRs instead of a multifamily option that would have brought duplexes and townhomes to the community.
