Real estate developer Robson Communities submitted a rezoning request to the town of Sahuarita, Ariz., for a 50-acre commercial center that will include a self-storage facility, a convenience store, retail space and an RV-storage yard, according to a preliminary plan submitted to the Planning and Zoning Department. The proposal will go before the commission on Jan. 4.
Regardless of some complaints that the project is not consistent with the historic nature of Old Nogales Highway and objections that the property is in a flood plain, the Town Council approved a General Plan Amendment changing the planning designation from floodplain to commercial.
The self-storage and other businesses would serve the Madera Highland, Quail Creek and Stone House housing communities, which will eventually encompass approximately 6,800 homes. There are few retail services nearby.
