Following an impassioned turnout by residents , the developer proposing a rezoning and development similar to town homes on the corner of Reems and Waddell roads is revising its original proposal to Surprise.
The proposal to change the zoning of the 11-acre parcel from commercial to high-density residential touched off an outcry from neighboring Sanalina residents. Eleven spoke for a larger group during the call to the public at the Jan. 17 City Council meeting and more than 100 attended a Jan. 26 community meeting with the developer and city officials.
NexMetro Communities plans to build 133 units on the site and vice president Brian Rosenbaum said the majority will be detached single family homes, similar to town homes, priced to rent at $1,000 or more a month.
