The City of Apache Junction seeks to encourage commercial and retail development in the downtown by offering development flexibility through the Downtown Overlay Zones. These incentive guidelines are intended to be used for new and/or expansion projects within the identified downtown area.
The Downtown Overlay Zoning provides property owners with the following opportunities:
Substantially reduced landscaping standards in certain areas
Digital (LED) signs
Updated site and building design guidelines
Determination of available assistance or other allowances of phased improvements through an Economic Development Agreement shall be the determination of the City Manager or the City Manager's designee subject to the approval of the City Council.
Staff will strive to craft a "win-win" agreement that will help ensure your success in our community.
