The former New China Super Buffet in Sun City, Ariz. — an eyesore, frequent spot for garbage dumping and occasional home to squatters – is finally going to be cleaned up for good.

According to the Daily News-Sun, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has approved Phoenix-based Anthem RV’s plan to develop the property as a sales lot with minor service functions.

No timetable was provided within a project description, and Anthem RV’s owner, Phil Olson, could not immediately be reached for comment. The company had been awaiting approval of its request to have the property rezoned from C-2 commercial to C-3 for commercial where there is adequate access to major streets or highways.

The RV dealer is expected to purchase the site from Roy S. Ludlow Investment Co. which has owned it for years. Calls to Ludlow also were not returned.

Plans call for Anthem RV, which has locations in Anthem and Mesa, to remodel the existing 7,921-square-foot structure formerly housing the Chinese buffet, establish space for displaying 50 RVs along Grand and 108th avenues while designating another 31 spaces – including two that are handicapped-accessible – for customers and employees.
