Legal Alert - Governor Ducey Signs Zoning Bill Into Law
by Nicholas J. Wood and Noel J. Griemsmann
Great news for the Arizona infill development industry, as the long awaited “fix” to the three-quarters vote/supermajority statute (i.e. A.R.S. Section 9-462.04(G)) has finally made its way through the State Legislature and has been signed into law by Governor Ducey. Effective August 9, 2017, it will be more difficult for a handful of opposing neighbors to cause an applicant in a zoning case to garner the requisite minimum number of affirmative votes from any Arizona city or town council.
