A review of the largest apartment community ever proposed for Fountain Hills was brought forward during 2019 and it was approved by the Town Council, but not without a challenge.
A committee of citizens petitioned to have the approval for the 400-unit complex referred to voters for approval and the question will be on the ballot for a May 2020 election.
Hilltop Vistas Properties proposed the plan for the community on a 60-acre site off Palisades Blvd., just north of Shea Blvd. The plan, unveiled in March, has two separate communities, an area with 12 apartment buildings and 270 units open to all. The second area is a 130-unit building that would be age restricted with amenities that include pool, cabana, bocce and pickleball courts and a fire pit.
