Mesa's Planning and Zoning Board will consider rezoning more than 45 acres and annexing land into the city that could make way for an auto mall and residential development near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
Pew & Lake PLC applied to city's planning and zoning board on behalf of the Berge family, which has owned car dealerships throughout the Valley for decades. The site of the proposed project is located on Signal Butte and Williams Field roads and to the north of State Route 24, which partially opened in August. The board is set to consider the rezoning on Sept. 26.
The total site stretches for nearly 130 acres on both the east and west sides of Signal Butte Road. The bulk of the site — about 85 acres — on the west side of Signal Butte had already received zoning approval in 2019 for an auto mall.
