NORTH CENTRAL ARIZONA SENIOR LIVING COMMUNITY
Site of former NCU headquarters on public land
The prospective new owners of the 3 story office building located at 10000 University Dr plan to apply for a zoning map change for the former NorthCentral University Headquarters building and the 50 acre parcel it sits on. The property is currently zoned Public Land, Planned Area Development (PL PAD) and a zoning code change to R1 Residential: Single Family Mixed Housing with a PAD overlay is being sought. Note that PL PAD is described in the Town code as:
The proposed Development Plan calls for adding up to two 3-story buildings with 51 apartments per building and an additional 85 single family rental homes with garages throughout the property. Future plans call for the build-out of the entire 50 acre parcel. The proposed 259 unit development would be a Senior Living rental community for both assisted and independent living.
A second Neighborhood meeting was held on June 6, 2023. The zoning change from Public Land to higher density faces strong community opposition.
The developer, Richard Whitney, met with Superstition Hills United on Sept. 14, 2023 and informed them that the town of Prescott Valley is requiring a secondary emergency road out of the old NCU complex. Mr. Whitney is in the process of completing the civil engineering needed to accommodate this requirement.
This will also include a new town street that will run from Mendocino, at the eastern end of Florentine Rd., to Sheridan Ln. This is on State land. Whitney is in the process of getting an easement from the State and is conducting traffic study reports for Superstition Drive and Sheridan Lane.

A third developer meeting will be held on November 30, 2023, beginning promptly at 4:00 pm. The meeting will be held at 10000 University Dr. Enter the lobby of the second floor of the old school building.
The meeting will follow a very structured format beginning with a detailed presentation about the project, followed by a reading of the written questions and comments submitted by the public and concluding with opening the floor for questions and statements.
