Full slate for Buckeye P&Z on Tuesday


BUCKEYE — After a couple of consecutive meetings with few agenda items, the Buckeye Planning and Zoning Commission is set to be much busier Tuesday, Oct. 11.
Tuesday’s meeting, set for 6 p.m. at Buckeye City Hall, 530 E. Monroe Ave., includes four hearing/action development items.

Two items are about the same project. Westpark has a comprehensive master plan and includes several hundred acres, spanning onto both sides of State Route 85, with a five-phase buildout.

Garrett Development seeks two actions from the board Tuesday.

The developer wants a minor general plan amendment recommendation to the Buckeye City Council for about 79 acres at the southeast corner of Turner and Lower Buckeye roads. Garrett Development wants the zoning changed from “neighborhood” to “master-planned community,” as the firm wants to use those acres for light-industrial development.

As a separate agenda item, Garrett Development wants the board to recommend changes to the city council. The firm seeks a major comprehensive plan amendment recommendation to the council for a rezoning with three components.

Those three components are rezoning the 79 Turner/Lower Buckeye Road acres to light-industrial, a major amendment that adds the 79 acres into the Westpark plan and amending select land uses, development standards and design requirements within the CMP for the undeveloped, western 530.7 acres of Westpark.

The proposal does not modify any use or standard for the eastern 616 acres of Westpark, including the previously developed Phase 1.

Also on Tuesday’s agenda is a rezoning request for Cardinal Capital Industrial Park. The proposed 213-acre property runs south from the Roosevelt Irrigation Canal at the Turner Road alignment, even with the Roesser Road alignment.

Lastly, developer Continental Properties has submitted a site plan for the board for a 204-unit, garden-style apartment complex. Springs at Sundance is on 10.7 acres at the northeast corner of North Sundance Parkway and 234th Lane, located between Watson Road businesses, Interstate 10 and a Hancock Properties development.

The density of those apartments would be about 19 units per acre.
