A sign on the property at Duval Mine Road and La Canada announces a Feb. 6 public hearing. 

Traffic, safety and their neighborhood as they know it — these were among the concerns voiced by a full house of Green Valley RV Resort residents after receiving notice from the Town of Sahuarita that an apartment complex could be going up next door.

More than 100 residents met Monday to discuss an application from the Park Corporation to rezone about 15 acres from GR-1 (Rural Residential) to B-1 (Local Business) near the northeastern corner of Duval Mine Road and La Canada Drive.

Park Corporation is requesting the area in red to be rezoned to allow for multi-family buildings and possibly commercial space. It is on the northeastern corner of Duval Mine Road and La Canada Drive.
