WELCOME TO CASA GRANDE A “GROWING HORIZON!”

W

elcome! Let me take a moment to introduce you to Casa Grande and our “Growing Horizon!” As Mayor, I get many opportunities to speak with individuals and groups about Casa Grande. Our “Growing Horizon” and the potential of attracting thousands of new jobs have given me some sleepless nights. How do we prepare? How can we find ways to promote and market our community? That one line led me to ask myself the questions: “Why would someone want to live, work and play in Casa Grande? Why should a company decide to move or build its business here? How can we promote growth in a responsible way?” Next, my marketing and sales background began to kick in. Casa Grande needs to manage its image and brand as well as market itself. We need marketing materials to highlight our attributes such as our industry, businesses, available platted lots, industrial business centers, downtown Main Street, community center, education choices, community health, workforce development, trail system, climate, location and close proximity to things to do. This publication we are calling Casa Grande - A Growing Horizon will help answer the questions I posed above. It’s a campaign to promote what is good about Casa Grande, and will feature in 40 pages: • Education, education options, local education accomplishments • Industry • Chamber of Commerce and businesses • Downtown and our “Main Street” • Pinal County and things to do • CG Mountain Trail System • Proximity • Infrastructure-ready home sites • Public transportation • Community health This document will help prospective Industry, business, home builders, visitors and residents understand what Casa Grande has to offer. It’s a beginning. From here, we can build our plan and continue to promote our community. Growth is inevitable. What it looks like and how we manage it is up to us. I believe that we all want a community that has the best things for our people, has things to do, managed growth and, ultimately, is a great place to live, work and play!

GOLF COURSE

PAUL MASON SPOR T SPLE X

GRANDE SPORTS WORLD

DOROTHY POWELL SENIOR CENTER

Dave White Municipal Golf Course is open year-round for great golfing in Casa Grande. As a Par 72 and 6,651 yards from the gold tees, it is a challenging course. Beautiful mountain views and mature trees line the course. The cart paths are all paved, and the course’s new irrigation system makes for a wonderful golf experience.

Grande Sports World has helped solve the recreational needs of the community, while providing the local economy with a much-needed boost. Located on 50 acres of land adjacent to Francisco Grande, Grande Sports World is a state-of-the-art facility whose scope of operations and activities stretch 365 days a year. Grande Sports World currently includes eight football and soccer fields, a 59,000 square-foot training facility that houses a weight-training exercise area, therapy centers, classrooms, locker rooms, meeting rooms and laundry facilities that can accommodate up to four full-sized professional teams. The public-private partnership allowed the city to build the facility while turning the day-to-day operations and maintenance over to the Francisco Grande Hotel & Resort. The city also aligned with other groups to help make Grande Sports World a hub for training, fitness and recovery activities. Additional partnerships were formed to market Grande Sports World globally and drive professional and aspiring athletes to the Performance Institute. Furthermore, Casa Grande has partnered with Major League Soccer teams and the U.S.Soccer Development Academy to house their player development program at the site. Ultimately, the Grande Sports Academy will provide world-class instructional programs in soccer, tennis, football, golf and physical and mental conditioning for children from 7 to 18 years old. Grande Sports World has hosted multiple tournaments, and many more are scheduled over the course of the next year. Despite the many things that occur at Grande Sports World, one of the most important aspects of the facility is that it is also used as a venue for local recreational activities. Youth and adult leagues in Casa Grande also have opportunities to schedule dates, reserve the fields and otherwise enjoy the facility.

The Paul Mason Sportsplex is home to four adult-sized lighted softball diamonds and scoreboards, a concession stand and restrooms. This facility also has fencing available so that fields can be transformed to accommodate regulation fields for Little League, Pony League, Babe Ruth and girls fastpitch softball. Dorothy Powell Senior Adult Center provides area residents the opportunity to experience recreational, cultural and educational programming in a friendly atmosphere. Dorothy Powell Senior Adult Center is open to individuals 50 years of age or older. Tours and an explanation of programs are available during our normal operating hours.

ED HOOPER RODEO GROUNDS

A local venue that hosts a wide variety of rodeo events throughout the year, these rodeo grounds are definitely a hot spot for thrill seekers looking for old school entertainment that gets back to the roots of Western culture in Arizona. Rodeo has seen a comeback in popularity over the past few years, and the events held here always offer a fun time!

COMMUNI T Y RE CRE AT ION CE N T E R

The new Casa Grande Community Recreation Center is currently scheduled to begin construction in January 2018 and can be expected to open in early 2019. Amenities include a walking track, fitness rooms, a dance studio and many other things for people in the community to do.

The Casa Grande Mountain Park covers more than 1,000 acres, and is one of the best hiking spots in all of Pinal County. The highest point of the mountain range is 2,350 feet, and the majority of the lands are rocky, steep and rugged. The vegetation on the trail is similar to that of the Sonoran Desert landscape. This includes saguaro, prickly pear and barrel cactus, foothill palo verde, creosote bush and other plants prominent in Arizona. Hikers on the trail can also expect to see wildlife typical to Southern Arizona. Red- tailed hawk can be seen flying around the trails, while other common critters such as cactus wrens, mourning doves and blacktailed jackrabbits roam the areas, too. Hikers have also spotted coyotes and bobcats from time to time. If you love the outdoors, love hiking and spotting all sorts of amazing wildlife, the Casa Grande Mountain Park is a place you have to see!

T

he City of Casa Grande’s key industry focuses are on retail trade, manufacturing and agriculture, with significant contributions from health care and social services, as well. Health care and social services make up 13.2 percent of the city’s economy; manufacturing makes up approximately 12.4 percent, retail makes up 12 percent and accommodation and food make up 10.9 percent. Over the past two years, Casa Grande has generated significant media attention at the national and international levels with development announcements by Lucid Motors (electric vehicle manufacturer), Attesa Motorsports (2,300-acre development that will include two professional racing venues) and Dreamport Villages (1,500-acre extreme sports-themed amusement park). In addition, construction of the Phoenixmart, the 1.5 million-square-foot international business-to-business sourcing center is well underway, and should be completed by the end of 2018. These four projects combined are projected to create over 30,000 jobs and represent over $5 billion in capital investment over the next 10 years. In addition, the Attesa Motorsports venue and Dreamport Villages are expected to attract over 4 million visitors a year.


MANUFAC TURING

These economic development projects have the potential to expand Casa Grande’s economy at an enormous rate, and add to an already impressive list of other key industries and businesses that exist in Casa Grande today. Manufacturing has an impressive presence in Casa Grande, boasting companies such as Frito-Lay, Abbott Nutrition and Hexcel. One of the great benefits for the manufacturing industry in Casa Grande is the easy access to the I-10 and I-8 highways that intersect only a few miles south of Casa Grande.

RE TAIL T R A DE

As a result of Casa Grande’s increasing population, retail trade has also increased, as well. Florence Boulevard, which runs east to west in the southern part of the city, has become a major corridor for retail development in dining, shopping and entertainment. To the east of I-10 on Florence Boulevard lies an impressive number of department stores, chain restaurants, a Harkins Theatres and the potential for future development as the city continues to grow. Additionally, in the northern part of the city, more commercial development is planned and will continue to grow in parallel with the arrival of new homes and new industries that will open in the coming years.

AGRICULT URE

As most longtime residents in Casa Grande know, agriculture has been a large part of the economy for many years. Crops, such as alfalfa and cotton, grow in abundance, in addition to other types of agriculture, such as dairy. While many new industries continue to arrive in Casa Grande, agriculture will always have a home in Casa Grande, and will continue to be a staple of the economy for years to come.

he predicted increase in industrial businesses and population in the coming years will likely have a profound effect on traffic. To ensure that transportation needs are met and there are no major traffic deficiencies, both the city and Pinal County are conducting studies to understand to understand the most important areas for road improvements.

CASA GRANDE TRANSIT PLAN

Work on the Casa Grande Transit Development Plan began in December 2016. The plan has included a management plan as well as public outreach to ensure public input is considered for the project. In addition, a transit technical committee has been established to guide study efforts. Based on initial assessments, the plan suggests that Casa Grande will be dramatically different than it is today. The study also includes the creation of new service route options, and they have been reviewed by the public -- via surveys and online interactive mapping tools -- and by the committee itself. The study will conclude in December 2017.

PIN A L COUN T Y REGION A L T R A NSP OR TAT ION PL A N

In addition to the transit plan that Casa Grande is working on, the Pinal County Regional Transportation Plan is currently in works to make investments in key strategic routes to improve regional transportation as the population of the county increases. These improvements will come in the form of financial assistance to each community based on population size and project importance. Casa Grande, for example, is expected to receive over $260 million in funding for traffic infrastructure projects over the next 20 years. This will go toward road improvements, expansions and a brand new freeway connecting to the East Valley.

HIGH SCHOOLS

For the workforce of tomorrow, Casa Grande Union High School District is preparing students like no other high school district around. CGUHSD instructs over 4,500 students and maintains a staff of approximately 450 committed employees. Approximately 1,800 of these students are enrolled in Career Technical Education (CTE) programs offered by CGUHSD, which is helping prepare students to become part of the workforce that future businesses in Casa Grande will need to succeed. The CTE program boasts exceptional production from its students; its program enrollees have a 98 percent graduation rate, a 100 percent credential licensing to all students who complete the program, and the program provides 12 different fields for students to choose from. Each give them the tools they need to succeed for life after high school. These programs have produced exceptionally talented students and are awardwinning for their success. For example, the FFA (agriculture) chapter at Casa Grande Union High School has been named the State of Arizona’s most outstanding high school FFA chapter three times in the past 10 years. In addition to the CTE programs offered, CGUHSD offers competitive AP and honors courses in fields such as math, science, English and social studies that help prepare students for college. Many students that graduate from Casa Grande high schools are college-bound, and just last year, graduates were offered more than $3 million in scholarship money to attend colleges.

CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

T •

he Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce was organized in 1920 and incorporated in 1935. According to a national study, conducted by The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based strategic consulting firm: When consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 49 percent more likely to think favorably of it and 80 percent more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future. If a company shows that it is highly involved in its local chamber (e.g., attending events, serves on a committee or chamber board), consumers are 10 percent more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition. When consumers know that a national restaurant franchise is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 68 percent more likely to eat at the franchise in the next few months. When consumers know that an insurance company is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 36 percent more likely to think favorably of the company.

Q: What are some benefits for new businesses that join the Chamber of Commerce? A: There are many benefits and opportunities that apply when a business joins the Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce. To name a few: excellent networking opportunities, marketing of businesses, website listings and postings on the chamber’s Facebook page, educational workshops and seminars, luncheon speakers and advocating for businesses. It is the largest business organization advocating for business in Western Pinal County, with more than 485 business members invested in the chamber When businesses join the Chamber of Commerce, they become part of a team dedicated to growing local business and promoting business as a whole.

Q: What does the future look like for local businesses in Casa Grande? A: Always optimistic! We feel businesses in Casa Grande have the opportunity to prosper and, in some cases, expand. Working in partnership with the educational institutions in the area and a number of prospective businesses coming to Casa Grande, the future looks bright. However, a business person needs to keep up with the ever-changing marketplace and with consumer trends. Q: Tell us a bit more about your organization and what your mission is. A: The Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce as the voice of business, leads, promotes and develops opportunities for the success of its members and the community. Small business represents the largest segment of the Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce, indicating that chamber membership has consistent and powerful benefits for small business members – especially if consumers are aware that the small business is involved with its local chamber. The Schapiro Group study further found that if respondents know that a small business is a member of its local chamber, the business enjoys a 49 percent increase in its consumer favorability rating, a 73 percent increase in consumer awareness, a 68 percent increase in its local reputation and an 80 percent increase in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future Q: What do you see as some of the biggest opportunities for growth in Casa Grande? A: One of the biggest opportunities for growth in Casa Grande is location, location, location! At the intersection of I-10 and I-8, Casa Grande needs to continue to market as a destination for all types of business, large and small. Of course, just having a great location doesn’t mean immediate success for a business. Business owners and managers need to continue to be involved in the community, network and participate and partner with other businesses and entities. Success comes from great partnerships.

want to thank Mayor Jackson and current and past City Council members for their vision, direction and dedication to our city! They did an amazing job guiding the City of Casa Grande through some difficult times. THANK YOU! Previously I have talked about ‘The Plan.’ I thought that over the next several months we should expand on the plan, which is our road map for success and growth for Casa Grande. But before we can expand on the plan, we need to have a discussion regarding how money flows through a community -- how where we spend our $1 can impact our overall community. It’s an economic term called the “Multiplier Effect.” Here is the definition from Wikipedia.org: “The local multiplier effect (sometimes called the local premium) refers to the additional economic benefit accrued to an area from money being spent in the local economy.” It continues, “One perspective of the local multiplier effect focuses on the greater local economic return generated by money spent at locally-owned independent businesses compared to corporate chains or other absentee-owned businesses. Localization advocates cite the multiplier effect as one reason, of many, for consumers to do more of their business locally.” The common thought is that for every $1 spent in local businesses, it will circulate/be spent eight times. It is also commonly felt that if the $1 is spent online, it’s only $1 with no multiplier effect. The same can be said if that $1 is spent in a national chain, except the multiplier effect is one to two times, so that $1 might be $2 (more than online

because it does generate local sales tax). Let’s take the effect of something like Lucid Motors, which announced that they will be building their Electric Car manufacturing plant here. Just on the surface, 2,000 jobs with an average salary of $50,000 is a payroll of $100,000,000. Using the multiplier effect, if that payroll is spent only online, it is still $100,000,000 (a big number). Now use the local “Multiplier Effect” and it is spent in local businesses multiplied by eight times, so that would be $800,000,000. What effect would that have on our Casa Grande economy and community? Much more! I’m not suggesting that everyone stop buying online or going up to Phoenix to make your purchases. I am suggesting that you think next time, “Can I buy what I need here in Casa Grande? Can I go to dinner here in Casa Grande, and can I buy what I need from a local businesses?” Think about it -- $1 versus $8 -- $100,000,000 versus $800,000,000?

“These are INVESTMENTS in our community, in local businesses, in things to do, investments for our children, our young people, our veterans, our homeless, our seniors and ourselves; let’s work together to make it happen!” Craig H. McFarland, City of Casa Grande Mayor

FUTURE OF HOUSING IN CASA GRANDE

O

ver the past 10 years, Casa Grande has been consistently adding hundreds of homes each year due to the increasing population and growing job market. With the arrival of major economic entities such as PhoenixMart, Lucid Motors, Frito-Lay and Dreamport Villages, the need for housing in Casa Grande has never been greater. It’s also one of the reasons why Casa Grande Planning & Development Director Paul Tice believes the next few years will see the biggest increase in new home construction in Casa Grande’s history. Since 2010, Casa Grande has added an average of 200 homes per year. But, starting in 2018, the city projects annual home construction to rise to over 400 homes per year! With so many major corporations arriving to the Casa Grande area, the influx of new jobs and the increased demand for housing can only bring good news to the city. Residents can expect property values to increase, new tax dollars to result in additional city services and a growing customer base for existing businesses in Casa Grande.

When business owners want to open shop in a new place, two of the absolute most important factors are the location of the business and the transportation access those locations have. In Casa Grande, business owners don’t have to worry about those at all! Casa Grande has an estimated 1,865 available acres in commercially zoned property all over the city, and businesses have access to transportation options that aren’t even available in the Phoenix metropolitan area. In Casa Grande, commercial businesses have very close access to the I-10 and I-8 freeways, making transporting goods to Phoenix, Mexico and California quicker and cheaper. Businesses also have “through-the-gate” access at the airport for their industrial needs. This means that businesses will be able to get on and off the tarmac at the airport much quicker than regular commercial airports, as well get things on or off the ground faster to reach their destinations. With the arrival of thousands of jobs, an increased population and so many transportation options available, there has never been a better time to open a business in Casa Grande!

The city only requires two quick documents to start your business: a standard form of ID to show proof of citizenship and proof of payment of a small business transaction tax, followed by a quick two-week review process to earn a business license. Once these processes are complete, you can get started in no time! Below is a quick step-by-step guide for how to get your business started.

S T E P 1:

Fill out and complete the Business Transaction License This step is simple. Business owners will just need to list some basic information on the Business License Application form and follow the instructions to complete the document. You will need to list information about your business, such as the mailing address, ownership of the business, emergency contacts, your business type and your business location status. After filling out this information, you will just need sign and date the document.

STEP 2:

Bring a form of ID and complete the Casa Grande Licensing Eligibility Requirement form This step is quick! Just bring in one standard form of ID: a driver’s license, passport, birth certificate or another form of identification, then date and sign the document.

STEP 3:

Pay Transaction License Fee Once your documents have been signed and completed, you’ll need to pay the transaction fee. The annual rate is $70, but if you start your business any month after January your fee will be prorated! If you’re looking for a temporary license, Casa Grande also offers these licenses starting at $10 per day. If you’re a peddler, solicitor or a transient merchant, a different license fee will be required. These start at $40 per day. (For most businesses, there will be a two-week review process, required upon completion of all paperwork) Once you have completed these steps and have gone through the review process, you are ready to begin doing business in the City of Casa Grande!
