CASA GRANDE • ARIZONA

HORIZON A GROWING

ECONOMIC DEV ELOPMENT

casagrandeaz.gov


Welcome to Casa Grande a “Growing Horizon!”

A

s Mayor, I get many opportunities to speak with individuals and groups about Casa Grande. Our “Growing Horizon” and the potential for thousands of new jobs has taken a lot of thought. How do we prepare, and how can we find ways to promote and market our community?

That one line brought with it some 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?”

Casa Grande, a Growing Horizon is a publication that highlights/promotes the strengths of the community and its amenities and benefits. Those include: • Education, educational options, local education accomplishments • Industry • Chamber of Commerce and businesses • Downtown and our “Main Street” • Pinal County and things to do • Casa Grande Mountain Trail System • Travel time • Public transportation • Community health • Arts & Humanities This piece will help prospective industry, business, homebuilders, visitors and residents understand what Casa Grande has to offer. 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 we all want a community that has amenities for the people, has things to do, manages growth and ultimately is a great place to live, work and play! Sincerely,

Craig H. McFarland Mayor, City of Casa Grande

Business Snapshot Tractor Supply Distribution Center Tractor Supply Company opened the 600,000-square-foot distribution center in 2015, enabling it to expand West Coast operations with the ability to service upward of 250 stores in the Southwest region. The 100-acre site is within a Foreign Trade Zone, part of the Central Arizona Commerce Park. The distribution center employs approximately 250 people. In a 2014 Phoenix Business Journal article Greg Sandfort, president and CEO said, "The addition of a new distribution center in the Southwest is key to our western expansion strategy. Arizona's proximity to our western stores provides an ideal location for our new facility, which will allow us to achieve lower transportation costs and faster delivery to our stores."

Tractor Supply Distribution Center was awarded the LEED Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council in November 2015. Tractor Supply was able to build the new distribution center to the LEED Silver standard by incorporating a number of environmentally friendly features, including: • Energy-efficient design and heating systems • Water-saving plumbing and irrigation systems • Recycled and regionally sourced building materials • LED lighting

crushes the unsold materials for scrap. The company employs approximately 100 people in Casa Grande.

City of Casa Grande: Do you

have project funding?

Lucid Motors, Inc.: Yes. As of 3Q-19 we have secured over $1billion in funding. This strategic investment will allow us to move forward with all aspects of the business and bring the manufacturing facility to Casa Grande. City of Casa Grande: How will car

owners charge them while on the road?

Lucid Motors, Inc.: We have a strategic partnership with Electrify America to provide charging infrastructure for consumers nationwide. By the time vehicles are in production, there will be over 400 charging stations across the U.S. City of Casa Grande: After looking at over 50 sites in 13 different states, why did Lucid chose Casa Grande?

Lucid Motors, Inc.: We looked at existing factory sites as well as greenfield sites. We considered acquisition, build-out and operating costs over 10 to 15 years. In the end, the site Saint Holdings had lined up as part of its development agreement was ideal for an automotive manufacturing facility. We have close to 500 acres with all the infrastructure and utilities we

need on the site, plus close proximity to road and rail from a logistics perspective. The area is also adjacent to a large automotive supply base in Sonora, Mexico. This site allows us to scale our manufacturing as we grow and get traction in the market. We can start out relatively small with a 20,000 vehicle per year production level, with infrastructure and physical plant that supports that production. We can grow and do a better job of managing our expansion and operating costs. Many companies focus on the cheapest way to get into production. We're focused on the best value that gives us the long-term business plan and profitability. That made Arizona and Casa Grande the best choice for us.

City of Casa Grande: The supply

chain for the automotive industry is complicated. Can you tell us a bit about the challenges?

Lucid Motors, Inc.: A car is probably the most complicated item people purchase. Lucid will have 250 to 300 different suppliers with 2,500 to 3,000 purchased items — everything from high-tech electronics and cutting-edge software to sheet metal, leather, rubber, batteries and more. It can be a complex supply chain. Our team focuses on finding strong partners. We certainly look locally and have been meeting with several companies in the Arizona region. We can diversify a bit more than a large company.

City of Casa Grande: How is

Photo courtesy: Lucid Motors, Inc.

Interview with Lucid Motors, Inc.

Peter Hasenkamp, Vice-President of Supply Chain, Lucid Motors, Inc.

Lucid Motors, Inc.: This is a key element that is often overlooked, even by large car companies. Potential employees is one of the key items we looked at when determining a final site. Casa Grande and Pinal County are at a great advantage in terms of being the right size for us where we can have a meaningful impact on the local economy. We have been working with the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA), as well as the local community colleges, to put together a manufacturing training plan. The three community colleges have put together a manufacturing certificate program and have already graduated 60 students. One hundred percent of them have been employed at local manufacturing. This will be one of our fundamental tools for pipeline candidates, training them and setting their expectations and calibrating them before they come to the factory. We are also working with the ACA to create a local training center. Next year we will be hiring 600 to 700 individuals to start up the factory. We've already hired a few from Arizona.

Lucid working with Arizona to build a stronger talent pool?

Transportation

T

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 where the most important places for road improvements are.

Pinal County Regional Transportation Plan In addition to the transit plan that Casa Grande is working on, the Pinal County Regional Transportation Plan is currently in the 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.

Casa Grande Transit Plan As Casa Grande continues to grow, additional transportation options are needed. To address this need, the Sun Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization, in conjunction with the City of Casa Grande, is conducting the Casa Grande Transit Development Plan.

THINKCASAGRANDE.COM

The plan has the following objectives: • Understand existing and future needs and issues • Establish the goals and objectives for transit service • Identify transit needs and services • Develop service alternatives,

recommendations and an implementation plan • Identify a financial plan that will make transit affordable • Attract transit users

University of Arizona Study Shows Pinal County as One of the Top Agriculture Suppliers in Arizona and the United States

A

January 2019 study from the University of Arizona’s Department of Agriculture and Resources Economics confirms what many local farmers and ranchers have known for a long time – Pinal County’s agriculture footprint in the state and beyond is remarkable. The study begins by saying that Pinal County ranks in the top 2% of all U.S. counties in the total value of agriculture sales. It also highlights that the county also ranks in the top 1% in cotton, cottonseed sales, milk sales and inventories of cattle and calves. The study also placed the county in the top 4% of all counties in acreage for barley, corn and forage crops. Statewide, the study reports that Pinal County accounts for the following: • 45% of cattle and calf sales • 42% of cotton and cottonseed sales • 39% of milk sales • 22% of other crops and hay sales “Our farming community is the backbone of our economic development success,” Todd House, Board of Supervisors Chairman said. “Operations are family owned and have stayed that way for decades. They have been through the ups and downs and have always supplied our county, our state and our nation with the agriculture goods we need.”

The study showed the following from on-farm agriculture: • $1.1B in sales • $372.8M in value added to the county • Nearly 5,200 full and part-time jobs

of 110, the $50M production facility is approximately 100,000 square foot on 27 acres on the northern edge of the industrial park. Ehrmann’s executives chose Casa Grande because of the infrastructure, dedicated workforce and proximity to milk suppliers.

Looking at agriculture and agribusiness as a whole: • Nearly $2.3B in sales • $611.1M in value added to the county • More than 7,500 jobs

In a 2013 Phoenix Business Journal article, Vice President and CFO Benjamin Johnson said, “This location will enable us to make our products readily accessible to all of the major consumer markets along the West Coast.”

Agribusiness Snapshot Several dairy-based manufacturing facilities are based in Casa Grande. Convenient access to supply-chain raw materials and proximity to interstate highways for both incoming and outgoing freight access made Casa Grande a logical choice for west coast expansion.

Ehrmann’s Arizona Dairy Ehrmann has created yogurt enjoyed by consumers around the world for nearly 100 years. A leading dairy in Europe, Ehrmann Commonwealth Dairy opened the production facility in Casa Grande in 2013. With a workforce

When it came to the agribusiness totals, the study found that a quarter of Pinal County manufacturing jobs are in this sector, providing 33% of the total manufacturing wages. The latest numbers available to the study are from 2016. During that time Pinal County’s economy was a major beneficiary when it came to the contribution of on-farm agriculture and agribusiness. 38 CI T Y OF C A SA GR A N DE

Ehrmann Commonwealth Dairy was acquired by Lactalis Group in July 2019.

Franklin Foods In the summer of 2013 Franklin Foods, the fastest growing cream cheese producer in the world, opened a second SQF 2000 Level 3 manufacturing facility in Casa Grande, Arizona and is one of only 285 dairy processing manufacturers worldwide to achieve SQF 2000 Level 3 certification. The state-of-theart 90,000-square-foot facility employs approximately 59 employees. Keith Murfield, CEO of United Dairymen of Arizona, said in a Dairy Foods magazine article, "We are pleased that Franklin Foods has chosen Arizona and Casa Grande for their expan-

I look at these numbers and it doesn’t surprise me that we are a top supplier of milk and other dairy products in the state.

Daisy Brand The family-owned Daisy Brand opened the Casa Grande plant in 2008 to address the growing nationwide demand for Daisy Brand sour cream and cottage cheese. Located in the heart of dairy rich Pinal County, the plant is well positioned to receive and process locally produced milk for an exceptionally fresh product. In 2015 the Casa Grande plant was selected to be the first to manufacture Daisy Brand’s innovative squeezable sour cream.

Opening a Business in Casa Grande

The city generally requires only two 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. After that, it will take two weeks to review your application. Once these processes are complete, you can get started in no time! Here is a step-by-step guide for how to get your business started.

Step 1:

Step 3:

Fill out the Business Transaction License

Complete the Casa Grande Licensing Eligibility Requirement Form

All forms can be easily completed online. 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, sign and date.

Step 2:

Pay Transaction License Fee

You will need at least one form of identification that includes a photograph of yourself. Don’t forget to sign and date the document.

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, the fee will be prorated. If you are looking for a temporary license, Casa Grande offers these 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.

ver the past decade, 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 Lucid Motors and Tractor Supply Company Distribution Center, the need for housing in Casa Grande has never been greater. It is also one of the reasons why Casa Grande Planning & Development Director Paul Tice believes the next few years will see the greatest increase in new home construction in Casa Grandeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Since 2010, Casa Grande has added on average 200 homes per year. Beginning in 2018 the projected annual home construction has risen by more than 500 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 go toward additional city services and a growing customer base for existing businesses in Casa Grande.

Housing Infrastructure

In addition to the number of building permits issued, there are approximately 6,000 vacant platted lots for housing development in Casa Grande, with nearly 3,000 lots that already have all the necessary infrastructure (water, drainage, facilities, streets, sidewalks, streetlights, etc.) in place and ready for building permit issuance.

"Tell them the Chamber sent you" What exactly IS the chamber of commerce? Many people assume it is a branch of the City government. While the Chamber does work in partnership with the City, and many economic, business and workforce-development organizations on programs and projects that help strengthen the local economy, the Greater Casa Grande Chamber of Commerce is a non-profit 501(c)6 organization, and is a business, just like yours.

Businesses that join the Chamber are able to increase their customer bases and meet fellow businesses through networking and taking part in Chamber-sponsored community events. The Chamber promotes living local and refers all of its member businesses, large and small, to potential customers. We know that economic development starts at the local level and that each business is a part of our success. Our businesses employ thousands of Casa Grande residents who live, work and use local business services in this city. Doing business locally generates tax revenue that assists the City in providing public services that improve the quality-of-life here. As a Visitor Information Center, we market Casa Grande by providing information about our chamber-member businesses, the city, community, economic growth and local and state tourism destinations. Residents and visitors are welcome to call or visit the office for recommendations about local business services and amenities, or great attractions and activities that make our community unique.

A great deal of investment has been made in this area by both the city and other organizations that want to see it continue to flourish. The City of Casa Grande has invested millions of dollars into the historic sites, street decor and scenery. Local businesses have also partnered with the nonprofit Casa Grande Main Street to provide support to new and existing business owners in the area with the goal of providing stability and maximizing success.

ince the opening of the Casa Grande Neon Sign Park April 13, 2019, its status as Arizona’s newest “roadside attraction” has led to tremendous community support and media coverage. In addition to being a key component in the City of Casa Grande’s strategy for destination marketing, Casa Grande Main Street is reaching out statewide to promote and attract new business and redevelopment interest with the park serving as a catalyst for nightlife.

Main Street Mission Statement To support the vision of Historic Downtown by enhancing the economic vitality, promoting and marketing the district, fostering partnerships and acting as the lead advocate for Historic Downtown and its historic preservation. The Main Street program is designed to improve all aspects of the downtown, producing both tangible and intangible benefits. Strengthening public participation and making downtown a fun place to visit are as critical to Main Street’s future as recruiting new business, rehabilitating buildings and expanding parking.

Casa Grande Recreation Center

C

asa Grandeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Community Recreation Center opened in the spring to rave reviews adding a new focal point to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation as a growing, family-friendly community.

The center, built at a cost of $18.2 million, offers sports programs, group fitness classes, kids programs, a fitness loft with state-of-the-art equipment and special events. The center also serves as the new home for the Boys and Girls Club of the Casa Grande Valley.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT GUIDE


Amenities in the center include: • A 13,000-square-foot gym that features two basketball and volleyball courts, six hoops, pickleball courts and a multipurpose floor for a variety of activities. • A fitness loft featuring treadmills, ellipticals, ascent trainers, bikes with new 7xi consoles, free weights, strength training, stretching and multifunctional machines. • Two group fitness rooms that will host classes such as yoga, Barre, Zumba, Group Power, Group Active, Group Ride, Yin Yoga and more.

The Community Recreation Center was a journey 13 years in the making. Voters first approved funding for the center in a bond election in 2006, but the Great Recession put the project on hold until the economy recovered. Ground was broken for the center early last year. In the weeks leading up to the grand opening, the Community Recreation Center hosted two open houses for residents to get an early look inside the

new facility. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. “We’re delighted with the response from those who have had an opportunity to experience the Community Recreation Center and try out the equipment,” said Casa Grande Community Services Director Steve Hardesty. “This is a state-of-the-art facility that also provides a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for fun and fitness."

• Rooms for meetings, special events, birthday parties and other celebrations.
