  • Proposed Text Amendments


    P21TA00001   A text amendment proposed by Pima County to update Chapter 18.68 Infill Overlay Zone to add a second infill overlay zone (to the existing Kleindale/Dodge Infill Overlay Zone) in the form of an unincorporated area near Benson Highway and Palo Verde Road.  Staff is currently trying to reach out to residents and property owners in the area to gain their feedback on the basic concept.   The effort is intended to encourage more development in the area by offering a more flexible set of development standards and reduced fees.  Use of the alternative standards and fees would be entirely optional on the part of a property owner.  Development standards may include, for example, replacing the requirement for a standard development plan with a less intensive site plan under certain circumstances, making certain minimum setback distances more flexible, allowing additional uses, reducing landscaping requirements, and reducing some development fees.  As currently proposed, the Benson Highway/Palo Verde Road Infill Overlay Zone may include properties adjacent to the south side of Benson Highway from Country Club Road to Alvernon Way and the MU and CB-2 zoned properties adjacent to the north side of Benson Highway east of the KOA Campground to Alvernon Way.  This is all in “conceptual” form;  staff is reaching out to area residents and property owners for their input and feedback on the ideas. 

    If you are a resident or property owner in this area and are interested in this effort, please contact staff - Janet Emel via email at (email preferred) or Mark Holden via email at or by calling 520-724-8800.
