The Mesa City Council will be briefed Thursday and is slated to vote May 20 on the results of a land auction and potential residential development on 132 acres of land owned by the city at Recker and Thomas roads.

The city held a land auction in March for the land with Blandford Homes outbidding Toll Brothers for the northwest Mesa parcel.

Blandford bid $21.1 million for the land which has had previous development plans come and go. The site is near Falcon Field and Boeing’s large manufacturing and technology footprint there.

Blandford specializes in master-planned residential development.

The Mesa City Council need to approve the land sale as well as Blandford’s development and site plans.
