The Pima County Board of Supervisors on May 6 unanimously approved a zoning regulation amendment that allows for increased building heights in industrial zones.

The change would permit maximum building heights of 80 feet, up from 34 feet, in Multiple Use Zone areas.  For Light Industrial/Warehousing and General Industrial zones heights are now permitted to 90 feet, up from 39 feet and 34 feet, respectively. Under the updated code, buildings would be required to have setbacks distances of at least double the total building height from any abutting single-family detached residences in multiple use zones.  The same regulations would apply in non-residential areas.

“We have noticed an increasing demand for greater allowable building heights from economic development prospects.  It is usually a qualifier for site selectors since companies do not want to go through a public hearing process for a variance,” said Carla Blackwell, Director of Development Services.
