The city of Maricopa has decided that an effort to get a conditional use permit for APEX Motor Club to be put on a future ballot does not meet requirements, likely leaving the effort’s future up to the courts.

In a letter sent on June 20 to Robert Rebich, the chairman of Maricopa Citizens Protecting Tax Payers, City Clerk Vanessa Bueras wrote that the city will not be sending the petition calling for a vote on APEX to the Pinal County Recorder’s Office.

Bueras wrote that the Arizona Constitution only allows referendums on legislative acts by a city council. Since the conditional use permit was approved specifically for one company, thus not changing the city code or laws, the permit was deemed by the city to be an administrative function, not legislative. Therefore, the city determined that the permit is not eligible to be subject to a referendum.
