By Maricopa Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors
The City of Maricopa Chamber of Commerce welcomes the APEX Motor Club to our great city, as it will bring significant economic benefits to our growing City.
The Maricopa Chamber of Commerce, since 1990, is the strongest business organization in our great community with a long history of supporting local businesses. As Maricopa’s Chamber of Commerce, we bring together the business community and partner with other local business support groups like, MEDA, MEC and Central Arizona College to educate and champion initiatives that inspire business growth in the City of Maricopa.
On April 18, The Maricopa City Council unanimously approved plans for the APEX Motor Club, a country club for auto enthusiasts, and the Maricopa Chamber of Commerce fully supports this decision.
The APEX Motor Sports Club will bring jobs to the community and help put Maricopa on the map as a tourist destination. The benefits are numerous, more tourists for our shops and restaurants and more jobs for our residents.
We applaud our City officials for their approval of the conditional land use permit for APEX because they recognize the value of the more than 400 construction jobs, private capital investment of $30 million and the additional 20 to 30 permanent jobs that the project will generate over the next five years. And this is just the beginning of the benefits that can be realized from the APEX Motor Club project over the mid and long term.
Unfortunately, a referendum campaign is being mounted to oppose the APEX Motor Club by a committee – “Maricopa Citizens Protecting Taxpayers” – whose officers do not reside in Maricopa.
The Maricopa Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors enthusiastically supports the APEX Motor Club and we encourage all Maricopans to do the same.
The Maricopa Chamber of Commerce, since 1990 is a 501(c)6 community benefit non-profit. You can contact the Chamber at 520-568-9573 or email Terri Crain at firstname.lastname@example.org.
