The Flagstaff Planning and Zoning Commission will decide next week whether to advance a proposed 1,300-home subdivision with frontage on West Route 66 and Woody Mountain Road to the City Council.
On Wednesday, the commission heard the first presentation on Timber Sky, which will require annexation from the county to the city of more than 100 acres, as well as several zoning changes to accommodate different uses.
The development, which would be led by Vintage Partners, a Phoenix-based group in charge of several other commercial projects around Flagstaff, would encompass a total of 197 acres and would have 100 residences reserved as permanently affordable housing. Those units would be priced at $220,000, which, according to the staff report, is based on what is affordable to a household earning the area median income.
Of the 1,300 units, 492 would be in multi-family housing structures and 808 units are scheduled to be single-family homes.
Traffic, water and sewer and drainage impact analyses were completed before the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting.
City Planning Development Manager Tiffany Antol said the city and the Arizona Department of Transportation have negotiated mitigation efforts for traffic issues along Route 66, most of which is controlled by ADOT, as well as city streets that will be impacted by the development.
The improvements agreed upon by Vintage Partners and city staff center on the Woodlands Village Boulevard intersections with West Route 66 and University Avenue, along with a left turn lane from Route 66 onto Flagstaff Ranch Road, Antol said. Vintage Partners agreed to provide the city $1.5M to contribute to these and other roadway improvements.
