Wednesday night’s initial meeting of the Surprise bond exploratory committee provided a first chance to discuss potential projects and suggest some changes to the wish list.
Twelve of the 17 — officially titled the capital improvement funding exploratory — committee members showed up at City Hall. And several had their own ideas about which projects are a priority.
The biggest ticket item of 11 primary projects floated for a $60 million bond proposal found the most resistance. Several on the committee were lukewarm about a possible $17.5 million multi-generational recreation center, saying the early proposal was too vague and a hard sell to residents.
