County OKs rezoning request over Gilbert’s objections

By Cecilia Chan | Gilbert Sun News

Lyle and Glenna Shappell saw the land around their property near Germann Road and Silverado Street over the years develop into industrial and business park uses, and they’ve now decided to join in.

The couple’s request to rezone their 4.12-acre site from rural to commercial was unanimously granted by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors despite objections from town planners.

“The town’s General Plan identifies this site as appropriate for office in the future given its mid-block location and access challenges,” said Kyle Mieras, Gilbert Development Services director at the supervisors’ June 22 meeting. “Additionally, many of the land uses allowed in the county’s C-2 zoning district are not compatible with the town’s General Plan and surrounding land uses.”
