La Puerta del Norte East Annexation Public Hearing (8/18/20)
This proposed annexation is located adjacent to the El Rio Preserve and impacts a biological and cultural sensitive area. The proposal includes some high density housing and has some water infrastructure and developer concession concerns. In addition, TA believes this annexation should be not be considered until several key master plans outlined in the Make Marana 2040 General Plan are completed.
