A small but contentious group of residents showed up for an informal meeting April 27 with representatives of the city and of Dominium, developer of the proposed Promenade affordable housing apartment development in Surprise.
While those around the proposed apartment and retail project on the southwest corner of Waddell Road and Cotton Lane did not leave that meeting completely satisfied, both the landowner next door and a Surprise employee said neighbors left the informational gathering less concerned.
James Truman was among those residents. He grew up on this land, known at one time as Truman Ranch a 160-acre property stretching from Sweetwater Road north to Waddell and Cotton Lane west to 175th Avenue from 1946 until 2007.
