SAN LUIS, Ariz. – The City Council here has opened the door for new residential development that could bring about thousands of new homes on more than 630 acres on the east side of San Luis.
In a move opposed by industrial developers, the council recently approved three major amendments to the city’s general plan, allowing for future homes on both sides of Avenue E and on the north and south sides of County 24th Street.
The changes allow the area, now zoned for commercial activity, to be developed as medium-density residential subdivisions.
One of the amendments was sought by Elizabeth Carpenter, David Loo and Moy Farming Company for 429.35 acres on the southeast corner of Avenue E and County 24th Street.
