187-Acre Arizona RV Resort Nearer Final OK
A 187-acre RV resort southwest of Lake Pleasant near Peoria, Ariz., the latest major development near the lake, is one step closer to construction.
The Peoria City Council last week approved a plan to rezone 454 acres, split into two parcels. Roughly half the land will be used for the RV resort and the other half will include a two-story hotel, the Arizona Republic reported.
The RV resort will sit just north of Arizona 74, west of Old Lake Pleasant Road. The hotel and some homes will be just northwest.
The project, headed by Phoenix-based developers DLGCII LLC and Lake Pleasant Group LLP, changes the plan the city approved in the late 1990s.
Then, the plan focused heavily on houses with a 13-acre hotel and 11 acres of commercial development. The latter was going to be south of Arizona 74, land that was mostly wiped out when the Arizona Department of Transportation expanded its right of way near the highway.
The developers came back with the land north of the freeway reworked as the RV park and 23-acre commercial development that will focus on small, boutique-style shops. An additional 244 acres will be used for the hotel, larger than the original plan called for, and some homes, spread out among the open desert.
The RV resort, Cholla Hills, allows for three RVs per acre, much lower density than traditional RV parks, and a maximum stay of six months. The resort will have a clubhouse, pool, fitness center, tennis court and lawn bowling, and pickle ball areas.
The projects, surrounded by state land but in Peoria’s planning area, are expected to bring in about $6.23million in direct sales, use, lease, bed and property taxes over 12 years.
