Queen Creek P&Z Approves 600-Acre Rezone

The Queen Creek Planning and Zoning Commission voted unanimously last week to recommend approval of a proposal to rezone 600 acres of State Trust Land for employment uses.

Representatives for the Arizona State Land Department said the land in question must be bought at auction before it can be put to any use. No auction has yet been scheduled.

The site is near one of two sites that had previously been rezoned to allow for a potential Samsung chip manufacturing site. Current speculation is Samsung will probably not locate its plant in Arizona. The zoning, however, remains in place.

Town staff said any planned future use will still have to go through site planning before anything can be built, and that the rezoning merely identifies acceptable uses.

The Queen Creek Town Council will consider the potential rezoning next month. (Source)
