San Tan Valley makes plans to become a city
Oct. 11, 2017
A Pinal County community known as San Tan Valley is working on incorporation to become its own city, an effort neighboring city Florence vetoed back in 2010.
Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation earlier this year that removed Florence’s power to veto San Tan Valley’s incorporation, and since then the movement has quickly picked up steam. Ray Torres, a committee member for Vote San Tan Valley, believes that this time, incorporation will become a reality.
Last week, Vote San Tan Valley submitted a boundary map and petition to collect signatures to the Pinal County Elections Department. The group now has five months to obtain the 10,000 signatures needed in order to trigger a public vote.
