Proposed changes to the Apache Junction City Code regarding recreational marijuana, cargo containers, land splits and subdivision design standards are to be discussed at Tuesday’s planning and zoning commission meeting.
It starts at 7 p.m. Feb. 23 in the City Council Chambers, 300 E. Superstition Blvd.
Sections have been added or changed to the existing medial marijuana regulations in two versions to be discussed.
Under a section for home cultivation of recreational marijuana, the city would require that:
The commission is slated to discuss allowing cargo containers with an approved permit on single family residential zoned properties based on lot size, with 1.25-acres and larger lots OK to have a maximum container size of 8-foot-by-40-foot; and 8-foot-by-20-foot and 8-foot-by-10-foot the maximum sizes depending on the residential zone.
Also, temporary- or emergency-use cargo containers may be permitted on lots with the previous approval of a permanent cargo container. The temporary cargo container shall meet setbacks, be the same size, color and comply with landscape screening as the permanent cargo container.
The commission is also to discuss master-planned community districts and proposed changes to the city’s land development code regarding subdivision and minor land division regulations; platting procedures and requirements; subdivision design principles and standards; and land splits/minor land divisions, lot line adjustments and lot combinations.
