The 316-house Mediterra project approved in 2016 by the Highland City Council is showing signs of moving forward after a lawsuit was dismissed last year.
Last Wednesday, Nov. 19, the planning commission voted to recommend several dozen changes to the council.
There are three main parts to the revision, said Kim Stater, the city’s assistant community development director. Changes are to the development document, planning department conditions and engineering conditions, she said at the meeting.
Camille Bahri, with developer Sunland Communities, said many of the changes were triggered by a city condition to make the project’s main access point match the East Valley Water District’s access south of Greenspot Road.
“One condition had a rippling effect on everything,” Bahri told the commission.
