BUCKEYE – Two items related to the planned upcoming development are on the Buckeye City Council agenda for Tuesday’s meeting.
Infrastructure agreements with two promoters are on the agenda of the regular meeting.
Tuesday’s regular meeting is set for 6 p.m. An information workshop is set for 3:30 p.m.
US Capital Development LLC owns approximately 179 acres at the northwest corner of Perryville and McDowell Roads and plans to build a new industrial park. The park will eventually develop 2.7 million square feet, or approximately 62 acres, of space.
A staff report indicates that the project will be called the “Paloma Vista Logistics Center”. The owner will need to build approximately 8,200 feet of new sewer line, drainage facilities and more, for a total of approximately $ 9.7 million in improvements.
Construction must begin by July 30, 2022 and be completed by September 30, 2023.
“Industrial land in this region is in high demand and it is likely that this action will help create up to 5,000 new jobs in this region,” the report said.
Buckeye I-10 Logistics LLC owns approximately 290 acres along the northeast and southeast corners of I-10 and the Dean Road interchange. Commonly referred to as “Verrado Commerce Center”, the area is where the developer plans to build a new speculative industrial building.
The 640,000 square foot building is to be constructed at the corner of Van Buren Street and 215th Avenue.
The owner is urged to invest nearly $ 1 million in improving roads on Van Buren and the 215th, as well as improving regional drainage and utilities, which are to be completed by August 2023.
Also on Tuesday night’s agenda is a possible memorandum of understanding with the White Tank Mountains Conservancy.
There is also a lengthy consent program, evidenced by the award of a contract for improvements at the intersection of Miller and Broadway. AJP Electric Inc., of Phoenix, easily had the lowest bid for the project, at around $ 2.9 million.
The Miller-Broadway project includes a traffic light and two pedestrian ramps.
The 3:30 p.m. workshop will include a presentation and discussion on the city‘s GIS infrastructure. There will also be a presentation by the consultant National Demographics Corporation, which the rapidly growing city has hired to provide redistribution services for six districts.
