A plan to build 178 homes on the historic Lazy K Bar Guest Ranch is headed to a public hearing this week, more than two years after a similar proposal was rejected twice by the Marana Town Council.

But this time around, to the dismay of opponents, developers have found a way around a statute that previously required the proposal to get support from a supermajority of Town Council members.

The development proposal includes a zoning change to allow for increased density on the 138-acre property a half-mile north of Saguaro National Park West. Under its current “resort and recreation” zoning, the land could have about 42 homes — one home per 3.3 acres — or a 600-unit hotel.
