Taller project too damaging, north Phoenix neighbors say
The North Central Phoenix Neighborhood Association seeks support from interested Phoenix residents in opposing zoning application, #Z-33-08, that would allow the erection of three 400-foot towers near the southwest corner of Central Ave. and Camelback Rd. The group is not against development and, in fact, supported the original height of 250 feet approved by the Phoenix City Council in 2006.
According to association members, the new plan is ill-considered and neighborhood-damaging. Infrastructure, sewer, water, and street would be severely strained by these immense structures. The additional traffic generated would overrun area neighborhoods that are already impacted by cut-through traffic. Such out-scale zoning might be cited as precedent for additional mid/hi-rise intrusion. To review, download, sign, and mail the group’s petition, click here.
