A controversial road extension that would give Bell Road a second entrance into the Mountain Vista Ranch subdivision appears on track.
The Surprise City Council on Aug. 18 agreed 5-2 to approve a zoning change from commercial to residential for 11 acres south of Bell Road between Sarival Avenue and Sunrise Boulevard to make way for the Bungalows at Mountain Vista Ranch project.
But the project also comes with the likely extension of Sunrise to the east of it. City officials want a 700-foot extension of the road into the housing development despite outspoken opposition from some residents in the Mountain Vista Ranch HOA, including the HOA’s president.
