    Economic Development

    "Business friendly" is a term frequently used to describe government practices that reduce costs to businesses. We believe there's more to it. We believe companies want to grow in communities that have a solid investment in roads, parks, wastewater treatment systems and other capital improvements that lay the foundation for commerce and quality of life. We believe businesses appreciate efficient governments that maintain an appropriate tax rate, pay off debt rapidly, provide certainty in regulations and deliver high quality service.

    Pima County has a record of growing and sustaining jobs in our community – from supporting existing employers to recruiting new ones and partnering with private business and other jurisdictions. We are continually assessing opportunities and developing proposals to strengthen the economy and increase jobs, and have exciting proposals on the horizon. Meanwhile, our accomplishments are many.
