In light of the recent court filings against planned, private racetrack Apex Motor Club, and the City of Maricopa, representatives from Apex say that they are not swayed in the least and will take the appropriate legal actions to ensure success of the project.
“The one thing we’re confident of is our support from the City,” said Matt Williams, vice president and managing partner of Apex. “And we’re 100 percent committed to seeing this through.”
Scott Turkington, vice president and development partner, also said, “Apex has been the beneficiary of overwhelming support from the residents of the City of Maricopa. Like us, they realize the numerous benefits Apex will contribute to the City’s continued economic growth and uniqueness. Have no doubt, we remain committed to making Apex a reality in Maricopa.”
The Apex project has been unanimously approved by the City Council.
The developer of Apex Motor Club, Private Motorsports Group, is making a significant, long-term commitment to Maricopa’s sustainable growth with the intention of benefiting the City of Maricopa, Pinal County and the State of Arizona.
From the inception to the completion of Apex’s three development phases, Apex’s approximate $30 million in construction and land acquisition costs would generate approximately 400 construction jobs earning a combined $14.5 million in wages. These direct impacts would create an additional 300 jobs with wages of approximately $11 million and approximately $25.0 million in economic activity. A total of approximately 700 jobs, approximately $25 million in combined wages and $55 million in economic output would be generated by the development of Apex in the City of Maricopa. These numbers are from Rounds Consulting Group’s study.
When stabilized, 20 full-time employees would be employed by Apex. The economic impact generated by these employees would be over $3.1 million per year. In addition to the direct jobs, 15 indirect jobs would be supported through the local economy. This would generate an added $1.9 million in annual economic activity. In total, approximately $1.5 million in wages and approximately $5 million in economic activity would be generated by Apex once stabilized.
