A massive planned sports-oriented complex north of the town of Florence will be adjacent to the future North-South Corridor connecting U.S. Highway 60 in Apache Junction to Interstate 10 in Eloy.
The Town Council recently voted unanimously to approve amending the 2020 General Plan to change the land-use designation on approximately 357 acres in two parcels from low- and medium-density residential and community commercial to a new category of sports-oriented mixed-use.
A map with the amendment shows the parcels are at the southeast corner of Judd and Felix roads, and at the southeast corner of Felix Road and the extension of Bella Vista Road, and are east of the North-South Corridor.
