Why this petition matters

Started by Laurie Ricci

Please sign this petition asking the city of Phoenix to deny this zoning change. Protect our rural lifestyle. 

The subject site is approximately 114.5 acres of vacant land located east of I-17 between Circle Mountain Road and Jenny Lin Road (the “Property”). 

The property consists of 14 parcels, Maricopa County APNs 202-22-001B, -001C, -001D, -003D, -003F, -003G, -003H, -003J, -003K, -003L, -003M, - 002B, -002C, and -002.  The Property is currently zoned a blend of S-1, C-2 and C-3 per zoning case Z-103-07. There are also portions which are still within Maricopa County and zoned RU-43.   

The Property’s General Plan land use designation is both Commercial and Residential 3.5 to 5.   

To the north of the Property is Jenny Line Road, and then wildcat county properties zoned RU-43; to the east is vacant State Land; to the west is the I-17 freeway and then homes zoned R1-6; and to the south is Circle Mountain Road, then an outdoor storage facility (zoned C-3 and C-2 in the City of Phoenix, and County lands zoned RU-43 ).
Rezoning and General Plan Amendment Requests

The applicant seeks to rezone the Property from S-1 (9 acres), C-2 and C-3 (90.8 acres), and RU-43 County (14.7 acres) to R-2 (66.51 acres), R-3 (32.07 acres) and R-3A (20.5 acres) for the development of a new, master planned residential community that includes a mix of single-family homes for sale and rental communities. 


A General Plan Amendment is filed as a companion case with this request. The General Plan Amendment proposes a change from Commercial and Residential (3.5 to 5 du/ac) to Residential (10 to 15 du/ac), Residential (15 + du/acre), and Residential (5 to 10 du/acre).
