The Scottsdale Planning Commission voted 4-3 Wednesday to recommend that City Council approve the rezone request for a controversial 338-unit apartment complex near the intersection of 92nd Street and Shea Boulevard.
Commission Chair Renee Higgs, Vice Chair Joe Young as well as commissioners George Ertel and William Scarborough voted in favor of recommending the zoning variance for 92 Ironwood.
