The first phase of the 10-phase preliminary plat for Century Ranch subdivision was forwarded to the Chino Valley Town Council after unanimous approval by the Chino Valley Planning & Zoning Committee at its meeting Tuesday, June 4.

Located on the southwest corner of East Perkinsville Road and M.A. Perkins Trailway, the property is adjacent to a number of other subdivisions, Planner Alex Lerma said. Antelope Bridge Estates is to the east, several units of Chino Meadows and Colonia Villas are to the west, and Highlands Ranch and Bright Star are to the south, Lerma said.

“It’s an area that’s dominated by … medium to high-density residential,” he said.

Right now, the property is currently vacant, but approval by the Chino Valley Town Council would allow for the subdivision of 180.5 of 378 acres for the development of 113 one-acre lots. Staff is making sure that all the lots and lot lines are abiding by the town’s development standards, Lerma said.

With a divided boulevard all the way through that ties into one of the roads in Bright Star and an eventual connection through to Road 2 North at the south end of the property, allowing for another access in the future, it’s a nice project, property owner Jim Fletcher said.

Should it be approved by council, Fletcher said he wants to get work started right away. Project work could begin by fall, he added. Additionally, they did it in phases so they would have more flexibility.

“We put 10 phases,” he said. “We’ll probably do one, two and three to begin with.”

There was no public comment at the meeting and the plan was unanimously approved by the committee, along with rezoning the 378 acres of property from single-family residential-two acre minimum to single-family residential one-acre minimum. The rezoning needed to be done in order to allow for the subdividing of the property, Lerma said.
