The City of Buckeye General Plan update is currently underway and is scheduled for voter ratification in August 2018. At 592 square miles, Buckeye has the largest Municipal Planning Area (MPA) in Maricopa County with much of this land area previously entitled. One of the challenges being addressed as part of this update is the engagement and buy-in of the land owners and developers of previously entitled land while ensuring that long-term fiscal impacts to the city are properly mitigated and assessed fairly on new development as well as existing and future residents. Matrix used innovative community engagement techniques such as sMap and CommunityViz to help identify issues and opportunities. Buckeye’s major challenges have involved economic development, accommodating major transportation corridors, water supply, and un-focused development.
