The Maricopa Planning and Zoning Commission approved a one-year extension of the preliminary plat of Tortosa Trails, a planned area development on the northeast section of Tortosa.
Tortosa Trails is a 287-acre platted subdivision which will add 1,052 single-family homes to Maricopa’s eastern edge, near the Volkswagen Test Track. It neighbors the Gila River Reservation to the north.
The Commission approved the measure 6-1 as the developer, Communities Southwest of Scottsdale, asked for extra time to complete its plats. Their two-year plat planning phase was about to expire.
