PHOENIX — The city of Surprise and Maricopa County have partnered to build a multigenerational community resource center in the West Valley city.

The 38,000-square-foot center will be on city-owned land in Surprise’s historic original town site, located at Hollyhock Street and Santa Fe Drive.

“This is an amazing project that will truly serve the well-being of our local community in new and expanded ways,” Surprise Mayor Skip Hall said in a press release.

“Currently, we are turning away program and partner opportunities due to our lack of space. This opportunity is the perfect solution.”

The center will expand community programs that serve Surprise, the Sun Cities, El Mirage, Youngtown and unincorporated Maricopa County.

Programs that will benefit include health and wellness, workforce development, and housing and homelessness benefit assistance.

The project will cost $26 million, with $18 million coming from the county through American Rescue Plan Act funding.

The remaining $8 million will come from a combination of ARPA funds and general funding from Surprise.

The center is expected to be completed by 2025.

“We know that as the West Valley grows, we need to expand the resources available to families,” Clint Hickman, who represents Surprise as the District 4 supervisor for Maricopa County, said in the release.

“This multigenerational community center ensures no resident is left behind by addressing the needs of youth, adults and seniors in one convenient location. I appreciate the partnership that brought this to fruition.”
