Doesn’t fit with general plan, infrastructure can’t accommodate, residents say
Chino Valley residents filled Town Hall last week to voice opposition to the proposed West Meadows development, an active adult community meant for ages 55 and older that will feature up to 276 park model units.
The development, on Road 1 West just north of Road 4 North, doesn’t fit with the town’s general plan, which shows the town’s priorities are supposed to maintain a small-town image and a rural lifestyle where most of the lots are one-acre plus, said resident Karen Freund.
“This is not even close to that,” Freund said. “The general plan goal is that you want to keep it consistent with the residents in the area, which are all large acre lots. This does not fit.”
Chino Valley’s infrastructure can’t handle it either, she said, stating that the development looks like it will add 800 to 1,000 homes in addition to the new apartment complexes that are slated to be coming.
