By Jay Taylor | InMaricopa

Maricopa City Council voted 5-2 on Tuesday to approve land use and zoning changes for the proposed 536-unit Home at Maricopa apartment project, allowing the developer to build several five-story buildings despite significant public opposition.

Councilmembers Henry Wade and Rich Vitiello opposed the changes; supporting the development plan were Mayor Christian Price, Vice Mayor Vincent Manfredi, Councilmember Amber Liermann, Councilmember Bob Marsh and Councilmember Nancy Smith.

The council approved and adopted a Minor General Plan Land Use Amendment to change land use from Public/Institutional (P) and Mixed Use (MU) to Mixed Use (MU) for 25.3 acres of vacant land on the east side of Porter Road, near Walmart.
