Denial recommendation for proposed housing development near New River

Foothills Focus

 

By Tara Alatorre | Foothills Focus

The Phoenix Rio Vista Planning Committee unanimously voted to recommend a denial on a rezoning request for a 71-acre parcel of land in the New River area that a developer wants to build 286 new residences on, which is approximately four homes per acre.

The planning committee’s 6-0 vote disapproving the request to rezone the parcel from commercial to residential was met with applause by residents that attended the meeting on September 11, to speak out against the development. Although the Rio Vista Planning Committee voted for a denial recommendation it has no decision making power because it is only an advisory committee, so the housing proposal isn’t dead yet.

The rezoning request and proposal plans for the development will still move forward for a hearing in front of the Phoenix Planning Commission on October 4, where the commission will make an official recommendation to the Phoenix City Council, which will make the final rezoning decision.
