A new development will arrive in the area as the Scottsdale City Council approved on consent the Sienna Hills Phase 2 final plat Tuesday, Jan. 8.

During its regular meeting, at 3939 Drinkwater Boulevard, the City Council approved the final plat for a new residential subdivision with 16 lots and four tracts on an approximately eight-acre site with single-family residential, environmental sensitive lands zoning.

The project for the preliminary plat received initial consent approval during an April 19 meeting in which reductions of lot area, including yard space and distance between buildings, was requested. All stipulations and ordinance requirements were met so the final plat can be recorded, establishing the lots.

Considered a suburban neighborhood, the property is on the north side of Shea Boulevard, west of the northwest corner of Shea Boulevard and 124th Street, according to a city staff report that included graphics and blueprints.

The report stated the final plat provides a street connection to the Sienna Hills subdivision on the east, eliminating access points on Shea Boulevard for the property with a connecting sidewalk to the path on Shea.

Fulfilling the stipulation for natural area open space, the report noted the 1.61 acres of open space required by the development and the subdivision is providing 2.21 acres of natural area open space, preserving the natural desert.

A scenic corridor easement will also be along East Shea Boulevard frontage with about 100-foot width and medium width of 85 feet.
