Queen Creeks Horseshoe Park Equestrian Center opened last weekend. It's very impressive. Horse lovers in the area must be so excited. There is a nice covered arena with bleachers for viewing and some other outdoor arenas.
For more information about the park please visit www.queencreek.org

I had a recent comment on one of my older blogs about the Queen Creek Post office. It appears to be from Jeff Brown of the Town Council of Queen Creek. I wanted to share it with all.
New post office update (11/13/08)
Q: I have heard the new Post Office has been put on hold or canceled entirely due to budget issues with the Federal Government. Is this true?
A: No. This is not true. The United States Postal Service has actually just closed the bidding process for contractors and will be selecting a contractor very soon. The new post office is planned for construction on land recently deeded by the Town to the Postal Service. This property is located on the north side of the Queen Creek Wash and west side of the Ellsworth Loop Road (west of the Development Services Building). The Postal Service still maintains that their Fall 2009 opening date is still achievable for the approximately 26,000-square-foot building.
Regards, Jeff Brown Town Council Member - Town of Queen Creek
Thanks Jeff for your comment.

This sign for a request for an amendment to the Queen Creek general plan can be found on Queen Creek Road in a farm area about two miles east of the Barney Family Sports Complex.
The request is from the law firm of Pew and Lake who specialize in zoning permits.
The request pertains to 357 acres at NW Queen Creek Rd and Meridian. It is asking for a parcels to be designated for Type A, community ccommercial and Type B industrial. It also asks for 138 acres to be designated high density residential. That would be 0-5 homes on an acre. Potentially that would be 690 homes. It also asks for 79 acres of additional medium to high density homes that could include 0-8 homes per acre for another 632 potential homes.
Grand total - potentially 1322 MORE new homes in Queen Creek.
Hmmm. Two cars per home = 2644 MORE cars on our newly created roads. Sounds like we need to widen all of the roads AGAIN.
People - don't we have enough EMPTY or foreclosed homes to go around without creating additional traffic and water stresses on the area? I still support a moratorium on home building in this area until our economy improves. Bring on the additional employment, but please consider slowing the home building.
