Queen Creek Planning Commission updated on annexation, rezoning of 4,140 acres of State Trust land

Last April, Queen Creek Town Council voted unanimously in a consent agenda to approve a pre-annexation development agreement with the Arizona State Land Department to facilitate annexation and development of more than 6 square miles at the northeast corner of the town’s planning area.

Nineteen planning areas are proposed on the approximately 4,140 acres of State Trust Land to be annexed into the Town of Queen Creek, the Planning Commission was told recently.

“And, each planning unit was analyzed to determine which land uses would be most appropriate for that planning unit and then each planning unit has been assigned a series of zoning districts that would be applicable for that individual development,” Brett Burningham, the town’s development services director, said during a recent work-study session of the Queen Creek Planning and Zoning Commission.

Masterplans will later be required for each planning unit prior to development, such as for transportation impacts, drainage, water, wastewater, public facilities, open space and recreation, he said.
