    Iwould like to introduce Susan Claeys, Vistancias new Design Review Coordinator. Susan and her husband recently moved to

    Arizona from the Seattle area of Washington. They are both life-long Washingtonians, but decided to follow their best friends to the valley of the sun instead of waiting until retirement. Susan has worked in various positions of the construction industry for Balfour Beatty Construction, Polygon Homes, Bentall Kennedy and Opus Northwest. Susans first job out of college was with a Japanese bank in downtown Seattle. Susan lives nearby in Corta Bella with her husband and two Chihuahuas Eddy and Cooper. Please welcome Susan to Vistancia! If you have questions regarding the design review process, Susan can be reached at sclaeys@ccmcnet.com

    In response to increased residential activity within the Vistancia community over the past few years, the Vistancia development team has been working with the City of Peoria to rezone several parcels originally planned for commercial uses within the master plan to residential uses. Rezoning plans were submitted to the City of Peoria earlier this year and were approved by City Council on August 26th. These commercial parcels are now available for residential new home builder purchase in the following parcels:

    Village A (Parcel A5, 14-acres): This parcel is located on the southeast corner of Vistancia Boulevard and Lone Mountain Parkway and has been rezoned to medium density residential, which allows five to eight single-family residential dwelling units per acre.

    Four parcels in Village D (Parcels D1, D2, D3B, D4, 112-acres): These parcels are located at the northeast corner of Lone Mountain Parkway and El Mirage Road, just east of Blackstone at Vistancia have all been rezoned from commercial uses to low density residential. This zoning will allow two to five single-family residential dwelling units per acre.

    Parcel design and engineering is currently in development with all five neighborhoods. To learn more about residential and commercial development within Vistancia, visit the Information Center at the gated entrance of Blackstone at Vistancia or call 623.933.6233.
