In a split vote, the Coconino County Board of Supervisors denied approval for a new planned community subdivision in Kachina Village last week.
The Scottsdale-based developer Arcadia Capital Group had asked the county to rezone about 40 acres of property just north of Tovar Trail and between Interstate 17 to the east and a water treatment facility to the west.
But mainly for reasons of traffic and community character, the project has faced strong opposition from current residents of Kachina Village. And the meeting on Wednesday was no different as several residents spoke to the board, all in opposition to the changed project.
