ABOUT THE ARROYO CROSSING DEVELOPMENT
In 2017, MACLT received a generous donation of land that will be developed into permanently affordable housing in a development called Arroyo Crossing.
In 2019, MACLT was awarded $4.3 million in New Market Tax Credits in order to construct infrastructure improvements needed to serve the 248 residential units and one community building in the first phase (there are 300 total units and 3 community buildings in the master plan). The new roads will provide an additional connection between the Spanish Valley’s two primary transportation corridors: US-191 and Spanish Valley Drive.
MACLT constructed horizontal improvements in 2020 and began vertical construction of homes in late 2021.
The first sets of homes at Arroyo Crossing will be completed in late 2022 and are being constructed by MACLT's development partners Community Rebuilds and the Housing Authority of Southeastern Utah through their Mutual Self Help programs, which allow families to obtain a lower loan rate in exchange for helping build their own homes.
THE LONG TERM PLAN
Long-term, this project will provide housing opportunities for hundreds of local families and workers, and public health systems. MACLT plans to provide a childcare center (an allowed use within the underlying zone) which will serve children of the local workforce.
MACLT intends to develop the project in two or more phases, with the first phase constituting the majority of the infrastructure and units. However, all of the lots in the master plan will be subdivided concurrently, infrastructure designs will be completed for all phases and drainage improvements will be constructed as part of the first phase.
Arroyo Crossing will provide housing opportunities for hundreds of local families and workers (300 units). The project includes a cross section of housing; single family homes, townhomes, duplexes, cottages and apartments. There is a mix of home ownership and rentals. It is a diverse community within itself, filling our local needs for housing. Included in the project are open trails, a community garden area, and a natural play area. Plans include a commercial area to fill local needs and a childcare center which will serve children of the local workforce.
Design Guidelines balance the community feel with sustainability concepts. The original design of the development thought out ways to be inclusive and friendly. The home design guidelines address orientation of the home, sustainability, materials, basic design and affordability. Sustainability is emphasized. Solar, energy conservation materials, secondary irrigation water, and food gardens lend themselves to preserving personal finances. Decreasing general costs of living adds to the affordability of living in Moab.
