You can contact the City of Surprise and find out from their zoning commission what is planned on the farm land at Waddell & Reems. This is one of the best ways to know for sure when you hear it directly from the department who oversees land development.
It is unknown how the land values of Marley Park will be effected. You would want to investigate it yourself, but I believe Marley Park has many unfinished home sites that many builders after going bankrupt did not finish. (West and SouthWest side of subdivision) Therefore it is an unfinished community and another home builder or custom builder would have to come and buy up the lots and build homes. This could be a challenge with the land use probably already designated as what size home and the number of homes that can be built.
In my personal opinion every time we open a freeway anywhere in the valley it is instant full of traffic. Of course in general freeways move traffic more efficiently compared to stop and go traffic of driving through the city.
Lauren, have you considered some of the larger homes in Sierra Montana subdivision or looked at homes in Waddell? Waddell is between Surprise and Goodyear with mountain views. Or are you considering the idea of work, play and live within walking, biking distance aka the Prasada concept?
I have been a valley resident since 1971. Surprise is a nice up and coming community with a lot of room for expansion. I hope this helps. Feel free to contact me with any further questions.

The expansion of the 303 will bring more traffic to the area and will be needed because as you create more business opportunities and better roads people follow. I believe people will actually see better traffic control in Surprise once these buildings are finished. People in Surprise have to travel to neighboring cities and back if they want to shop. Once we have our own shopping people won't need to travel Bell Rd and drive to Arrowhead or other areas to shop.
I believe home prices in Surprise are going to climb. Surprise has lower prices because it is so far out and it doesn't offer anything to people. Once Surprise has the shopping, the resturants, the car dealerships, and the freeways it will become a great city. I would expect the Marley Park area to compare to the Arrowhead area in the next 7-10 years.
