More Discussion Planned For Proposed Housing Development On Butler Avenue In Flagstaff

While the property developers for the Old Sawmill may have resolved issues surrounding affordable housing, traffic still seemed to be a topic of worry at Tuesday’s Flagstaff city council meeting. Flagstaff traffic engineer Jeff Bauman clarified some concerns, saying there will never be more than two cars at once queued to turn off of Butler onto the property, and no left turns will be allowed out of the property onto Butler. Property developers McGrath Partners have also proposed upping the amount of affordable housing units from 24 to 27, and donating $200-thousand to the development of Lone Tree Road. Council voted 5-2 against the project, but will further discussion it on March 5th. Council also discussed a resolution to wildlife killing contests. The resolution states that the City of Flagstaff will not encourage, or support these type of contests. The resolution passed 5-2. Finally, there was presentation on a proposed Tiny House Village community from Alexandra Pucciarelli, who is Flagstaff’s planning development manager. She spoke regarding the development agreement for the property which stated that the units in the village can be rented or owned and the development will help close part of the affordable housing gap in Flagstaff. The plan received unanimous support from council.
