New Pinal subdivision OK’d on Hunt Highway amid sewer worries


By Mark Cowling | Florence Reminder

Despite uncertainty about sewer service, the Pinal County Board of Supervisors approved a new 65-acre moderate-low density subdivision on Hunt Highway near Florence.

Sewage would most likely go to the notoriously smelly Section 11 plant in Magic Ranch, which EPCOR, interim operator of Johnson Utilities, has said it plans to close. But Supervisor Pete Rios, D-Dudleyville, said to deny the project for this reason “sends a message that Pinal County is closed to further development in the San Tan Valley area.

“At this step, I don’t think we should be the obstacle” or send that message, Rios said at the Supervisors’ Oct. 2 meeting.
