Nov. 7, Apex Motor Club received a city permit for a subdivision final plat for 48 garage condominiums. Council approval for the project is on the city council’s consent agenda for its Tuesday meeting.
In accompanying paperwork, Private Motorsports Group Vice President Matt Williams told Planning and Zoning Manager Rodolfo Lopez all 48 units have been reserved.
“Apex has experienced overwhelming success with track interest and membership acquisition to the club,” Williams wrote.
The condos for cars are planned to be in four buildings.
According to the staff analysis, final plats require water rights transferred from the water utility, Global Water Resources, “upon approval to extend their Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CC&N) to provide service. This review and approval authority rests with the Arizona Corporation Commission.”
The Global Water line that is meant to ultimately extend down State Route 238 to the Apex site at Ralston Road is part of a slow process. According to the City’s Development Services Department, the only permit issued so far for the water line extension applies only to a section from the Cobblestone Farms subdivision to just west of Green Road, three miles from Apex.
The line extension, meant to serve businesses on SR 238, has funding from an agreement among the City, Apex and Global Water. The agreement has Apex contributing $1 million and Global Water paying for the upgrade from a 12-inch line to a 16-inch line.
As planned, the line would still need approval to traverse a portion of Ak-Chin Indian Community property before reaching Apex. While the estimated cost of the water line extension is at least $750,000 per mile, crossing Ak-Chin property could cost much more.
Tuesday’s City Council meeting begins at 7 p.m. at City Hall.
The only item on the regular agenda is a proposal to change fees in the Development Services Department. That involves planning-and-zoning fees, engineering fees, building safety fees and fire-and-safety fees.
Among several consent-agenda items are a block grant for street improvements in the Heritage District, law-enforcement moves to combat gang activities and an agreement to act as the fiscal agent as Maricopa Wells Middle School applies for a technology grant from Ak-Chin Indian Community.
