PHX Surf, which has been quiet publicly for months about its plan to build a huge water park in Maricopa, has submitted updated, though downsized, plans to Maricopa’s Development Services Department.
Among changes featured in its pre-application paperwork is a size reduction, which includes scaling back to one surf pool from two. The park now is proposed for 9.44 acres.
Other changes in the updated plan eliminate a lazy river and water slides as well as an outdoor music venue.
The entire development, still regarded by the city as a quality project, is expected to include housing, lodging and retail space. It was first announced in May 2021, to sit between Loma and Green roads at Garvey Avenue.
Maricopa’s Planning and Zoning Commission has yet to announce a date for review of the plans.
