Two properties along Cactus Road in west Phoenix originally planned for commercial or restaurant development are now planned to add more housing.
The North Mountain Village Planning Committee on Wednesday night on a 13-2 vote recommended zoning changes for one of the two, near the southwest corner of 51st Avenue and Cactus Road, be denied for fear the two-story condominiums would cause an unfair burden to existing one-story homes neighboring the property.
The other property, near the southeast corner of 43rd Avenue and Cactus Road, received recommended approval by a 12-3 vote.
Both votes were to allow stipulations that were attached to the properties when they were zoned for commercial uses in the mid-2000s. Those plans for commercial developments never came to fruition.
