Subject: [CPEO-MEF] ENCROACHMENT: Development near Yuma Marine Corps Air Station (AZ)
Critical question in development OK in MCAS' view

Yuma Sun (AZ)
November 16, 2009

A proposed general plan change for a new planned community south of of the Marine Corps Air Station is stirring concerns that it could encroach on the military base and threaten its existence - which would be a huge economic blow to Yuma.

The planned community development, to be known as Estancia, was announced early this year and could eventually have a population of some 50,000 people and occupy nearly 4,000 acres, but it is not expected work would even start on it for many years, according to project leaders.

For now, the group of south mesa property owners who have joined to create the planned development have been focused on getting the area annexed into the city of Yuma (something that has been accomplished) and getting the land use designation changed from agriculture to mixed designations for residential and commercial uses.
