The subject site is located on the south side of Butler Avenue just east of Herold Ranch Road. On July 2, 2019, the City Council approved a Purchase Agreement, a Preliminary Plat, and an associated Development Agreement; all requirements for the proposed development of this condominium subdivision which includes an affordable housing component. Civil engineering plans for the project were approved on August 12, 2019. On October 3, 2019, the Inter-Division Staff approved a Final Plat for the proposed development of 50 new condominium lots and two tracts.
Key Considerations:
The City Council reviews final plat applications to ensure that the final plat meets the requirements of City Code Title 10, Flagstaff Zoning Code; Title 11, General Plans and Subdivision Code; and Title 13, Engineering Design Standards and Specifications. All the applicable city codes were reviewed by staff for this final plat application and found to meet the requirements.
Expanded Financial Considerations:
Community Benefits and Considerations:
The proposed development provides 50 detached residential condominium units and 10 percent of those units will be affordable. The site is located within a Future Urban Activity Center. The proposal of 50 units on 4.06 acres results in an overall density of 12.3 units per acre and conforms to the Future Urban land use designation which seeks a minimum of eight (8) units per acre.

The dedication of right-of-way along Butler Avenue is in conformance with the Regional Plan because it meets the needs for future transportation improvements on Butler Avenue included in the Capital Improvements Program and Regional Plan.
Community Involvement:
Inform. No public hearings or public outreach are required by either the Zoning Code or the Subdivision Code as part of a final plat subdivision review process.
