Rezoning Approval
On March 22, 2017 Chicanos Por La Causa (CPLC) received approval from the Phoenix City Council to rezone a 2.39 acre infill parcel at 25th Street and Bell Road to allow for a multifamily residential development. With support from the surrounding block watches, the vacant site will now be developed with a high quality product that will allow residents to take part of CPLC’s program that promotes and teaches about home ownership. The Tiffany and Bosco, P.A. Land Use and Zoning team congratulates Chicanos Por La Causa on the new development, which will break ground this fall.
