COOLIDGE — The Coolidge City Council Monday night took action to bring commercial services to Eleven Mile Corner by approving an infrastructure and services plan for the Conway II annexation.
The parcel is on the southwest corner of Eleven Mile Corner Road and State Route 287 near a closed cotton gin.
The city already contains three of the four corners of the intersection. It is a rural area that traditionally has been a midpoint between Coolidge, Casa Grande and Eloy.
“We don’t have a partner to the east, but we are working on it,” said Economic Services Director Gilbert Lopez.
Kyle Barichello, project manager for RVI Planning, said the land was being rezoned from agricultural for a planned development.
“This allows us to work with them,” Lopez said. He said the name of the development would come later.
