Surprise mixed residential plan faces organized opposition

(Via City of Surprise)

Hines is requesting a rezoning from Rural Residential (RR) to Medium (R-2) and High Density (R-3) Residential for a roughly 199-acre site of undeveloped desert land east of 163rd Avenue and Jomax Road in Surprise.

Rezoning will enable the development of Nobella, a mixed residential project of traditional single-family, single-family for rent and Build-to-Rent homes.

As currently envisioned, the plan calls for 479 R-2 and 418 R-3 lots.

The project narrative accompanying the request shows the plan fits with the City’s 2035 General Plan. It says, “The General Plan’s Anticipated Growth Map shows where growth is likely and encouraged to occur within the City. The Site is located within the 163rd Corridor Growth Area. The 163rd Avenue Corridor Growth Area is designated as a growth area that should include a full range of housing opportunities.” The plan’s overall density of 4.48 dwelling units/acre falls nearly in the middle of the two-to-eight-unit density called for under the Suburban Neighborhoods Development Type.
