There are several items on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting for the Buckeye Planning and Zoning Commission.
One is for the final phase of one of the city’s biggest and best-known developments.
The 53-lot second phase of the Regent Hills residential subdivision is set for preliminary approval at Tuesday’s meeting, scheduled for 6 p.m. in the council chambers, 530 E. Monroe Ave., downtown Buckeye.
The phase is located on a north-south strip that runs along the western edge of hole No. 15 of the Verrado Golf Club course. The 25-acre phase is near where the causeway currently ends on Lost Creek Road.
The property has an area of the Bureau of Land Management to the west. Regent Hills Units 3 and 4 are to the north, with the golf course and possibly more homes and Verrado Way to the east.
The preliminary flat would create several private pathways to be used for open space and landscape. The site will be developed in one phase and will be a gated community.
Streets inside the community will be 32 feet wide and will not have sidewalks, according to city plans.
The property has two gated access points on Lost Creek Drive. Engineering plans and a dedication map for Lost Creek Drive are being prepared, a staff report says.
The gated community and its streets will be private, maintained by the homeowners association.
The final construction of all the neighborhoods of the Verrado requires more than 8,800 housing units.
Also on Tuesday’s agenda is a possible rezoning recommendation for a phase of Encanto’s development along Jackrabbit Trail. The property was the subject of a lengthy annexation hearing at Buckeye Town Council’s meeting last week.
The agenda also includes the possible approval of a comprehensive signage plan for Jackrabbit Ranch Marketplace. It is a mall under construction at the southeast corner of Indian School Road and Jackrabbit Trail.
There aren’t usually four complex items on the committee’s agenda, but Tuesday’s meeting will be an exception. The council will hear about a proposed development code change intended to provide economic opportunity, streamline review and approval procedures, and provide aviation-specific development standards in the overlay district of the airport.
The council is also responsible for continuing to provide an aesthetic frontage along Palo Verde Road near the airport.
The commission’s busy Tuesday also includes a 16-hour workshop on food truck standards and work updates. The board held a similar workshop last fall; lead planner Randy Proch is expected to provide updates on Tuesday.
