You are invited to attend a neighborhood meeting to discuss concurrent requests by Ms. Carolyn Oberholtzer, Bergin, Frakes, Smalley & Oberholtzer, PLLC, for two Minor General Plan Amendments (GPA) and a Rezoning related to a proposed 309-acre master planned community called Hermosa Ranch. The site is located at the southwest corner of Avondale Boulevard and Lower Buckeye Road, extending approximately 3,900 feet west and approximately 3,700 feet south of the intersection.
Proposed Minor General Plan Amendment #1 (Application PL-19-0052), if approved, will amend the City’s General Plan 2030 Land Use Map for approximately 19.4 acres of the property located at the intersection of Avondale Boulevard and Lower Buckeye Road from Local Commercial to Mixed Use. Proposed General Plan Amendment #2 (Application PL-19-0053), if approved, will amend the City’s General Plan 2030 Land Use Map for approximately 25 acres in the area southwest of the intersection of Avondale Boulevard and Lower Buckeye Road from Estate Low Density Residential to a combination of Medium Density Residential and Mixed Use. The proposed Rezoning (Application PL-19-0051), if approved, will change the zoning for the entire 309-acre property to Planned Area Development (PAD), replacing the current PAD and Agricultural (AG) zoning that exists on the site. The proposed Hermosa Ranch PAD would allow for a master planned development featuring single-family residential (up to 1,125 units on 295.5 acres), multi-family residential (up to 240 units on 10.9 acres), and commercial (up to 10.9 acres). An elementary school site and community open space/recreational areas for use by residents of the planned community are also included in the request.
At the meeting, the applicant and/or their representative will be available to answer questions and solicit comments on this request. This is not a public hearing and no official action will be taken.
The meeting is scheduled for: Thursday, August 8, 2019, 6:00 PM, Avondale City Hall, Sonoran Conference Room (1st Floor) 11465 West Civic Center Drive, Avondale, AZ 85323
