City leaders last month advanced a plan, which could seed some bare desert for future retail or commercial growth.
Surprise City Council unanimously approved a rezoning request at its Jan. 15 regular meeting at City Hall, 16000 N. Civic Center Plaza.
The adopted request changes the possible uses for nearly nine acres of undeveloped land to include light industrial, commercial and retail developments.
The modified zoning affects 8.93 acres of an 18.96-acre parcel, located along the rail spur south and west of the southwest corner of Waddell and Dysart roads on the city’s eastern border with El Mirage, which was previously limited to industrial uses.
