A public hearing and vote are tentatively scheduled for March 6 before the Queen Creek Town Council on annexing Maricopa County parcels totaling 71.79 acres.

The property is at the southwest corner of Ellsworth and Riggs roads.

In 2007, the proposed annexation area was subdivided into 61 parcels in Maricopa County. The property has remained vacant since 2007 and is owned by a single partnership, according to Brett Burningham, planning administrator and interim development services director, and Kyle Barichello.

The parcels are zoned R1-35 with an average parcel size of 35,000 square feet, they said.

The proposed annexation area has been in the town’s planning area since 1999. The planning area identifies parcels outside of the town’s jurisdictional boundaries that may be annexed within the town in future years, according to the memo.

No one from the public spoke at a hearing on the Ranchos Legante annexation at the Queen Creek Town Council’s Jan. 16 meeting.
