The City of Maricopa’s Economic Development Department is building the new 21st Century American City. Maricopa’s economic development strategy is centered on building a sustainable city – one that features an economy characterized by diversity, competitiveness and success in the global economy.
Strong public/private sector relationships and partnerships are the cornerstone of successful cities in America. The City of Maricopa offers many opportunities for business. Fueled by explosive growth, the population is expected to reach 125,000 by the year 2010, offering tremendous opportunities for business in terms of customers and workers.
In partnership with private business, the City is actively recruiting a College Campus and a Hospital as well as working with Commercial Brokers to attract business to the area.
The City is only minutes away to the Phoenix Metropolitan area, Casa Grande, and Tucson, and is a major thoroughfare for travelers. Highways, Passenger and Cargo Rail, and an Airport are all local.
