CASA GRANDE — Zoning to allow for smaller lots could pave the way for nearly 2,000 new homes to be built in neighborhoods in the southern part of the city.
Thursday’s Planning and Zoning Commission meeting will include discussions on five items: three zoning changes, a planned area development amendment for build-to-rent home construction and an allowance for a circular driveway at a residence on Paseo De Paula.
Two PADs that are up for adjustment are the 235-acre Carlton Commons, located roughly southeast of Fiesta Grande RV Resort, and the 262-acre Sonoran Heights, located at the northeast corner of Earley and Henness roads. Both parcels were originally planned out prior to the Great Recession. Developers for both want to remove the PAD status altogether, replacing it with R-2 zoning in order to build at higher density.
The commission will also consider zoning to allow for Lucid Motors’ Phase 2 construction at the manufacturing site.
Though no action will be taken, the board will also hear an update on new playground equipment at Rotary Park on Trekell Road and a possible marijuana cultivation facility.
Thursday’s meeting will take place at Casa Grande City Hall at 6 p.m.
