Flagstaff City Council Approves Zoning Change For 160-Unit Aura Flagstaff

The Flagstaff City Council approved a resolution Tuesday that will allow for a 160 unit apartment complex on land near I-17 and Lake Mary Road. Trinsic Acquisition Company requested the rezone of land on High Country Trail, three years ago, to build Aura Flagstaff, which is an apartment complex with 20-percent of its units classified as affordable. Council put off a vote for weeks as they tried to reach a compromise with the developer. Back on June 1st, council passed a resolution wanting 137 units, in which Trinsic said it couldn’t be done. The developer came back to Council Tuesday, with a counterproposal of 160 units, but upped the affordable units from 20 to 32. Trinsic also doubled the life of the affordable units from 30 to 60 years. Council voted 4-3 for the ordinance on the final read and Aura Flagstaff will become a reality in the future. Even with the council’s passing of the ordinance, the Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously voted down the original plan earlier in the year.
