III. PARCEL HISTORY
A mobile home park was established in 1957, and expanded through 1966. The park was cited multiple zoning violations from the 1990’s onward. In 2017, the parcel was deeded to the City of Sierra Vista after a joint City/County effort to remediate numerous distressed properties belonging to an owner in the Fry Townsite. The site was then purchased by the Applicant, who then pulled permits to demolish the structures and clean the property. The property is currently vacant following these efforts.
|Department's Next Steps (if approved):
|Planning Staff will submit a copy of the recorded ordinance to GIS to amend the official County Zoning Map to reflect the action.
|Impact of NOT Approving/Alternatives:
|If the Board does not approve the Zoning Ordinance, the subject parcel will retain the existing MH-72 zoning designation.
|To BOS Staff: Document Disposition/Follow-Up:
|After the Chair signs the Zoning Ordinance, Board Staff should send a recorded copy of the same to the Planning Staff for our records.
