Existing Environmental and Site Conditions

EXISTING CONDITION ANALYSIS:

  1. Water Service: The City of Eloy provides stable water supply for the area to include Talon Mountain.  Water availability for Talon Mountain is serviced to the site by a 12” water main that runs the length of Toltec Road, which is Talon Mountain’s western-most property line.
  2.  Sewer Service:  Sewer is to be provided by The City of Eloy via an 8” forced sewer line that runs the length of Toltec road, which is Talon Mountain’s western-most property line.

HYDROLOGY ANALYSIS:  Storm water collection has been addressed in a drainage study, which outlines the specifics regarding how storm water will be collected, and how it will be retained on the project.  In general, it will be necessary for Talon Mountain to provide adequate facilities to retain the increase in runoff generated by the development.  This will be done by utilizing small areas within each phase of the subdivision as well as larger areas that serve as the general green space for the project.  Greenbelts will serve to convey water through the community to an existing retention basins located throughout the subdivision.  Offsite drainage has also been addressed in the drainage study.

The desire to add green space to Talon Mountain and the need to provide proper drainage of the site, in this case work together to improve the quality of life within the community.  Drainage facilities within the various phases have been designed to protect the surrounding areas from the increased runoff generated as a result of the development of the property, while also providing open space that is usable by the community.

Development Concept

 LAND USE

  1.  Residential:  The Approved Final Plat shows the community is predominately residential with a maximum yield of 1,380 lots.  The lots are designed to accommodate a variety of floor-plans due to an average dimension of 60 X 119 or 7,140 sq ft.  A variety of recreational activities will be available at Talon Mountain and will feature walking trails, active open spaces and playgrounds.  Careful planning an execution of the development will help fulfill the present and future needs of the plan area.
  2. Open Space:  An integral aspect of Talon Mountain will be its utilization of open space.  The opens space system is designed to serve as an amenity to the overall development.  The area will provide for storm water retention, recreational opportunities and aesthetic enhancement for the entire Talon Mountain Development.
  3. Recreational Amenities:  Talon Mountain features several neighborhood parks that meet both open space and retention basin requirements.  Common facilities should be provided throughout Talon Mountain and each facility can be structured to the desires of each individual phase/community to include basketball/volleyball courts, playground equipment, picnic tables and barbecues.
  4. Vehicular Circulation:  Vehicular circulation to and from Talon Mountain will be handled by Toltec, Hanna, and Valley Roads. Toltec Road will serve as the main thoroughfare linking traffic from Talon Mountain to the I-10, US-84, The City of Eloy, Phoenix, and Tucson.  The street system will utilize Roundabouts and Choke points.  These types of streets have several distinctive advantages when employed in any residential development, regardless of size.  Safety is a very important reason for their use.  In addition to creating a more scenic drive through the development, this type of road design minimizes traffic speeds, thus making it safer for drivers and pedestrians alike.  All streets within Talon Mountain have been designed to meet or exceed the City of Eloy’s requirements.
  5. Pedestrian circulation will involve sidewalks and the concrete multi-use path.
