The Camp Verde Planning and Zoning Commission got its first look Thursday night at the plans for a proposed residential subdivision to be built off of Arizona 260 and Cherry Road.
To be known as The Crossings at Cherry Creek, the subdivision is being built as a Planned Area Development that will include both commercial and residential lots.
The developer, Read Homes Development/Theaerm Investments, is proposing construction of 154 single family homes, 145 multifamily units, up to 115 apartments, plus 23 acres of commercial development and 25.5 acres of open space.
Included in the proposal is a dedicated wastewater treatment plant, which the proposal calls for turning over to the Town of Camp Verde at some later date.
The development has been in the planning stages for the last couple years and will be the first major residential subdivision to be built in the "growth corridor along Arizona 260.
It may also be the first development to take advantage of a proposed four-way intersection on Arizona 260 and Cherry Road.
The project is designed to provide affordable housing, according to the developer.
The developer has also stated in its proposal that the homes will be constructed in a "Southwest Ranch" style and the development itself will "compliment the natural features."
It is proposed to include a network of trails through the community and to incorporate the trails into the towns trail network.
The conceptual plan heard by Planing and Zoning on Thursday will be reviewed by the town council later this month and set for its general plan amendment in February.
