Jim Portner, of Projects International, Inc., has submitted to the City of Tucson a Rezoning Pre-Submittal Proposal for 11.62 acres of land at the northeast corner of Tanque Verde and Houghton Roads, owned by New Era Tucson LLC. This is not a rezoning application; they will first meet with local HOA's and Neighborhood groups, followed by a full public neighborhood meeting. This is still in the preliminary planning stage, subject to feedback from the City regarding code and regulatory issues.
The proposal is for a change from SR zoning (1 house per 3.3 acres) to R-1 zoning for 3.51 RAC (residences per acre). The new development would be a subdivision of 40 single family detached residences. Note that this is a revised plan from the previous proposal, and is in response to community concerns.
