A Farmington city official said last week that revised plans for the Maxfield Training Center redevelopment project should be on the Planning Commission’s July agenda.

“We anticipate receiving an updated preliminary plan set early next week,” Economic and Community Development Director Kevin Christiansen said following the June 11 Planning Commission meeting. “We will move forward with a public hearing and review of the revised preliminary plan at the July meeting.”

AC Acquisitions in March presented a rendering of its new plans for the Maxfield Training Center site.

AC Acquisitions plans to demolish the former Farmington Junior High School building on Thomas Street and build multi-family housing on the three-acre site. After pushback from neighbors during a May 8, 2017 Planning Commission review, the company switched up its proposal for 150 luxury rentals in favor of 60 multi-story, owner-occupied condominiums.

In March, Farmington Public Schools trustees agreed to drop the purchase price for the property from $1.2 million to $1 million, because of the reduced density.
