Murio Farms is active again

A neighborhood meeting will be held on October 12 at 6:00 at Desert Sage Elementary School, 9325 Mossywood Drive.

Murio farms is a planned development that was announced in April, 2021 with a neighborhood meeting in June 2021. The project covers 380 acres between Cole Ave and Maple Grove south of Lake Hazel. 3400 units are planned.

The developer is the Land Group, the current property is owned by the Murgoitio family.

The new neighborhood meeting notice does not (directly) include facts about the development such as size and number and type of units. Nor does it reference the city planning page or id (car21-00022). Information on the city page and the Land Group web site has not been updated since summer of 2021. However the neighborhood meeting notice has the same map used in 2021, so I am confident that my “old facts” are still accurate.

The city requires a new development to send notice to people who live within 300 feet of the property (plus one, me, the South Cole neighborhood association contact). Since most of the area is open farmland, very few people are notified by this requirement.

The development will affect everyone who lives near, or uses, S Cole or S Maple Grove. In 2021 we had a huge turnout thanks to posts like this and people like you passing the message on to friends. The Land Group was not happy with the large turn out and all the questions asked by people beyond the 300 ft area. Don’t let then turn you away, these meetings are open to all interested parties, not just those with a mail invite. Please attend, ask your questions, and get your thoughts (positive and negative) on the record .
