Has There Been Previous Council Decision on This:
A Settlement Agreement as approved by City Council was executed on May 13, 2013, and amended on January 29, 2015, which outlines how the Zoning Map Amendment and the Block Plat are to be processed, sets specific development density and intensities, and settles the two pending lawsuits.  Once the Zoning Map Amendment was approved last year, all pending lawsuits were resolved.  This Block Plat is consistent with the Settlement Agreement and the approved Zoning Map Amendment.
Options and Alternatives:
  1. Approve the Final Plat with no conditions.
  2. Approve the Final Plat with conditions.
  3. Deny the Final Plat based on non-compliance with the Zoning Code, the Subdivision Code, and/or the Engineering Design Standards and Specifications for New Infrastructure.
Canyon Del Rio is a 1,426 unit residential and 225,000 square foot commercial development.  The proposed development will provide a mixture of high density, medium density, and single-family residential units combined with commercial service, retail, and open space land uses on 262 acres.  A Concept Zoning Map Amendment was approved in 2019 for 83-acres located in the northeast corner of the site at the intersection of Butler Avenue and South Fourth Street.  The remainder of the property (179-acres) is currently zoned as Single-Family Residential (R1) zone and Medium Density Residential (MR) zone. 

The site is heavily treed and is located within the Resource Protection Overlay (RPO) zone.  The site has a varied topography, including many slopes and small valleys; the most significant is the Rio de Flag drainage that runs across the southeast corner of the development and continues downstream to Foxglenn Park.  The proposed Fourth Street alignment will ultimately connect Butler Avenue and John Wesley Powell Boulevard and runs along the eastern boundary of the Canyon Del Rio subdivision.  An existing aboveground 69 KV transmission line crosses the site in an east-west direction at the south end of the development. 
Key Considerations:
The City Council reviews final plat applications to ensure that the 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.  These findings were determined to be met when the Preliminary Plat was approved by Council in 2019.
Community Involvement:
The subject property's existing zoning allows for the proposed subdivision. No public hearing or public outreach is required as part of the City Council's review of a final plat.
