New mobile home park in Chino Valley?

Chino valley residents have raised concerns over a new mobile home park.  Forty-six acres of property in the area of Road 1 West and Road 4 North would be used for a 55 and older Senior Community Park.  Last night, Darin Mahoney voiced concerns to Town Council members regarding the definition of 55 and older, which doesn’t address all members of the household; as well as water levels and the current rural lifestyle.  The developer has indicated 1 member of the household must be at least 55 years old and children under 18 years old won’t be allowed.  John Bates also raised concerns over water and the impact on roads.  Council has approved a development plan for 276 mobile home park units, with Councilman Cloyce Kelly casting the opposing vote.
