Despite vocal opposition Marana Town Council approves re-zoning of a 103.2 acre portion the Lazy K Bar Ranch property, opening the way for up to 178 new homes.

“The council’s decision changed the zoning from RR (Resort and Recreation) to a specific plan. The old zoning meant developers could only build one home for every 3.3 acres (about 42 homes) or a small 600-unit hotel. The new zoning allows for 1.3 homes per acre and the plan is to have lot sizes between 6,000 to 11,200 square feet and to build homes that will sell for $400,000 to $600,000.”

Residents were very upset about this re-zoning, since it is four times the number of house originally proposed.
