Box Canyon, General Plan amendments on Aug. 10 P&Z agendas in Queen Creek

The Queen Creek Planning and Zoning Commission will meet Aug. 10 in two sessions. The work study session will begin at 6 p.m. It will be followed at 7 p.m. by the regular session. Both meetings will take place in the Queen Creek Town Hall, 22350 S. Ellsworth Road. Both meetings are free and open to the public.

The first of two state-required public hearings on the amendments will take place Aug. 31 at Communiversity at Queen Creek.

The regular session agenda includes public hearings and possible action on two items: RZ14-059, Box Canyon Planned Community Development Rezoning; and RZ16-050, Fire Station No. 413 Rezone.
