The owners of Vulture City ghost town are planning on building a condominium complex on the west side of Wickenburg.
The Planning and Zoning Advisory Commission approved Rod Pratt’s and Robin Moriarty’s application for development review for the complex along South Vulture Mine Road and Aircleta at its meeting last Thursday. The property is currently vacant.
According to documents filed with the Town, the proposal is to build four buildings, which each will house 12 separate units for a total of 48.
The developer plans to have amenities such as a pool, playground and barbecue area for use by the private residences and some type of association to maintain the premises and facilities. The intent is to have residences that can be within walking distance
of many of the local services such as schools, grocery store and other nearby commercial uses.
A one way access is proposed off of Aircleta Drive to control the flow and access point. The vehicle entrance will be on the far end of Aircleta while the exit will be closer to the corner with Vulture Mine Road. The site plan shows 82 parking spaces, which documents say is adequate. It is recommended that the majority of spaces be shaded, but that is not a requirement.
