Coconino County Board of Supervisors Update 4-18-21

There are two major requests for rezoning for development. 

1. Windmill Ranch Resort, a proposed 300 unit RV park at Newman Park just east of I17. The request asks for a change from G-10 acre minimum parcel site to Resort project, including environmental impact, water and flooding plan, density, etc. The project was approved by the planning and zoning commission and county staff. However, the Board voted to veto the project 4-0 with Supervisor Vasquez not present. Their reasoning centered mainly on the visual impact of the site to visitors entering Flagstaff. They praised the work of the developers in their presentation but “wrong project in wrong place”. 

2. Kachina Highlands, an area in the northeast section of Kachina Village adjacent to Forest Highlands. The zoning request is from residential single family to planned community zone. This entails smaller housing units and duplexes with housing sizes from 1350 to 3000 square feet. Many letters from Kachina residents and the N. AZ Audubon Society were received opposing the change. The board has denied this request.
