Citing financial concerns and what it would mean to the city and its residents, the Coolidge City Council on Monday tabled a decision on a manufactured home community project moving forward to give the city time to look at the financial picture.
The subdivision, to be called Hawk Hollow, would be owned and operated by Sun Communities on 319 acres at the southeast corner of Skousen and Martin roads.
Councilmembers were told Sun Communities, the largest manufactured home community operator in the country, already has two such properties in Casa Grande, the Palm Creek and Spanish Trails communities.
The lots would be 55 by 110 feet with 36-foot setbacks and offer a main feature of affordability.
Most of the homes would sell between $150,000 and $175,000, with lot payments being about $600 a month.
Councilmember Tom Bagnall said the development would add 3,000 vehicles on Skousen Road daily and the city is not ready for that increase.
