In an effort to makes it services more accessible to a growing population of nearly 450,000 people, Arizona’s Pinal County wants to build several new structures that will house a variety of government departments.
Plans are currently in the works for the construction of a development services building and emergency operations center in the county seat of Florence.
That project, at the intersection of Florence and Park streets, is expected to cost at least $16 million to build.
The county also wants to build a new county complex at 31500 N. Schnepf Road in San Tan Valley, as well as an addition to an existing county building at 1995 North Wilson Avenue in the city of Maricopa.
The San Tan Valley project would be built on a 5-acre site owned by the county near the campus of Central Arizona College, and is also expected to have a construction price tag of $16 million.
The $11 million Maricopa project, meanwhile, will go up within the Maricopa Heritage District on four acres owned by the county and would see the building of two structures for a combined 42,000 square feet.
In August, members of the county’s Board of Supervisors approved a $63 million bond to fund the construction of the projects.
Request for Proposals for all of the projects, with varying submission deadlines, have now been issued by Pinal County.
