Mission Statement

Pinal County Town Hall is an assembly of delegates annually convened that identifies critical issues facing Pinal County, creates the forum for education/exploration of the topic and fosters networking/collaboration among its participants. By drawing upon Pinal County's diversity of citizens the Town Hall process promotes public consideration of these issues, builds consensus and supports implementation of resulting outcomes.

     The Pinal County Town Hall began in 1988. A few individuals and organizations realized the importance of convening a cross-section of county citizens to discuss issues of importance, especially those related to economic development.

     Pinal County Town Hall receives substantial support from the County Board of Supervisors as well as its many "Partners in Economic Progress." A committee of volunteers, The Pinal County Town Hall Advisory Committee, meets monthly to plan and facilitate the annual conferences.

     Each spring, approximately 130-140 delegates assemble for two days to discuss a topic that impacts the county as a whole and its respective communities and citizens. Topics over the nineteen years include:

1988 A Symposium on Economic Development
1989 Pinal County Futures: Tomorrow's Vision - Today's Plan
1990 Horizon 2000: Strategies For Action
1991 An Inside Look at Pinal County Government: Taxes vs. Services - A Delicate Balance
1992 The Year For Action: Implementing a County-Wide Economic Development Plan
1993 The Changing Workplace: Education's Challenge
1994 Today's Crisis: Confronting Juvenile Crime In Our Communities
1995 Pinal Tomorrow: Building Healthier Communities
1996 Volunteers in Service to Communities: People Making A Difference

An annual report, which includes recommendation and/or suggestions, is prepared after each town hall, and distributed to delegates and partners and is monitored during the year for progress and action by members of the advisory committee. While the town hall possesses no official power or authority, it is significant to note that many of the delegate recommendations and/or ideas have been implemented over the eighteen year history of town hall.
