The Pinal County Enterprise Zone was originally designated by the Arizona Department of Commerce effective June 1, 1991. In 1996, the Pinal County Enterprise Zone was renewed for a five-year period, extending through December 31, 2000. In October 2000, the Pinal County Enterprise Zone Commission requested renewal of its designation. In February 2001, the Commission was notified that its designation was renewed for another five-year period, extending through December 31, 2005. Because of the 2000 census, all Enterprise Zones were required to reapply for designation. Pinal County submitted an application for renewal in October 2003 for two enterprise zone areas because all of Pinal County no longer met the poverty status criteria. On January 28, 2004, Pinal County received approval of both enterprise zone areas effective January 1, 2004 through December 30, 2008. Most recently, Pinal County sought and received approval for two enterprise zone areas effective January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2013.
Member entities of Pinal County Enterprise Zone 1 include the incorporated municipalities of Casa Grande, Coolidge, Eloy, Florence, Kearny, Mammoth, City of Maricopa, the Ak-Chin Indian Community, the Gila River Indian Community, the Tohono O’Odham Indian Nation, the San Carlos Indian Reservation and Pinal County.
Member entity of Pinal County Enterprise Zone 2 includes a small area of the municipality of Apache Junction.
The Pinal County Enterprise Zone Commission, its member entities, and local economic development interests will continue to strive to maintain a close working relationship in support of the Pinal County Enterprise Zone Program. The Commission and its partners will continue to work cooperatively with the Arizona Department of Commerce in an effort to maximize the effectiveness of the Arizona Enterprise Zone Program.
