The Maricopa Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday approved an amendment to the city’s General Plan Future Land Use Map from undesignated land use to Master Planned Community, clearing the way for the Santa Cruz Ranch project to move forward to review by the city council.
In total, Santa Cruz Ranch includes 1,886 acres. Of that, 891 acres already have been zoned for master planned community, which can include residential, mixed-use, commercial, and light industrial uses. When completed, the Santa Cruz Ranch project could be the site of more than 6,600 homes and 17,000 people.
