New Park and Park Enhancements

A man and a woman talking a walk in a park.Council voted December 15 to fund more than $8 million in park-related projects that will advance the goals of the City’s Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Council was able to fund these projects thanks to strong growth in housing permits and retail sales collections that resulted in better-than-expected one-time revenue from fiscal year 2020. The projects include, finishing Gaines Youth Baseball Field ahead of the original timeline, a new eight-acre park at Greenway Road and Parkview Place, and a $3 million budget for enhancements to Surprise Community Park. Enhancements could include paving the north parking lot, adding a restroom, improving dog park drainage, and exploring new lighting in the area and will be finalized following design and submittal of actual costs. The new eight-acre park will provide additional programmable and rental field space.

Greenway Road Improvement Project

When completed, the project will add two additional travel lanes, turn lanes, drainage infrastructure, sidewalks, bicycle lanes, street lighting and landscaping. The Greenway Road project is a part of the 2017 voter-approved Decide Surprise Obligation Bonds.

Surprise Small Business Relief Grant

The Surprise Small Business Relief Grant provided funding to help local businesses that were impacted by the current public health crisis.

Surprise Police Department Reaccreditation

The Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, Inc. (CALEA®) has granted the Surprise Police Department national accreditation status for the fifth time! Accreditation is a four year process where all aspects of the agency’s policies, procedures, management, operations, and support services undergo a comprehensive examination. Each agency conducts a detailed self-assessment and participates in an on-site review by a team of outside CALEA assessors composed of experienced law enforcement professionals. In addition, agencies offer community members an opportunity to provide their comments and observations. The CALEA accreditation process is a benefit to both the agency and the community, as it requires the agency to conform to procedures that are consistent with internationally recognized, progressive law enforcement standards. This is the foundation for competent, responsible, and ethical service to the public. The Surprise Police Department voluntarily participates in the law enforcement accreditation process and will continue to do so in the future.

Congratulations to the Surprise Police Department!

This project will design and construct the full build- out of Greenway Road from Cotton Lane east to Sarival Avenue. The project includes constructing two additional travel lanes, adding bike lanes, sidewalks, street lighting and landscaping. In addition, there will be a traffic light at Greenway Road and Northwest Valley Parkway.
