A new state law making it harder for neighbors to force a “supermajority” vote on rezonings will make it easier for the Tucson City Council to approve a proposed Fry’s supermarket on the east side.

The law, which overwhelmingly passed the Legislature last spring, adds several procedural requirements for neighbors wishing to formally protest rezoning proposed to city and town councils. It amounts to a sweeping revision of the rules for gathering protest signatures.

As such, it is “one of the most impactful changes in land-use law in at least a decade,” said Jordan Rose, president of the Rose Law Group, an influential Scottsdale real estate and business law firm.
