The owner of the defunct golf course at Ahwatukee Lakes Golf Club has scheduled its own public forum to give residents a chance to grill its experts on its proposed “agrihood” for the 101-acre site.
True Life Companies will have six to eight stations devoted to specific aspects of the plan during the meeting at 5 p.m. Dec. 7 in Mountain Pointe High School cafeteria, 4201 E. Knox Road, Ahwatukee.
Attendees “can have a dialogue with experts and ask questions about specific parts of the vision for Ahwatukee Farms and the process to make it a reality,” spokesman Drew Sexton said. “Residents can spend as much time at each station as they would like and learn more from these experts.”
The stations will be manned by:
Aidan Barry, Todd Severson and Quentin Thornton of True Life, who will discuss the overall vision of Ahwatukee Farms and how community-supported agriculture fits into the community;
Shetal Walters and Sonia Carver of Desert Garden Montessori School, who will focus on their plans for the new school campus;
Darrell Wilson of the civil engineering firm Hilgart Wilson, who will provide residents with information on flood control plans and the area’s hydrology;
Don Dyekman of Dickinson Wright and Jason Morris of Withey Morris, who will explain the consent form, and “how it protects residents and what the legal process is,” according to Sexton;
Chuck Wright of Kimley Horn, who will discuss the steps being taken to reduce traffic in the area.
