PHOENIX -- Two developers have picked Mesa as the site of a
planned $250 million resort and water park.
Waveyard developers Jerry Hug and Richard Mladick said they chose
Mesa over Surprise because of its freeway and airport access, family
friendly reputation and public support.
However, the development hinges on a November referendum that the
developers said they requested to make sure residents are on board
with the deal.
The land for the wave park currently is occupied by a golf course.
Scottsdale-based Waveyard Development LLC announced last summer
that it wanted to build a $250 million hotel and water park featuring
surfing, whitewater rafting, snorkeling and other sports activities.
