There’s a big construction job on the horizon, but there may not be enough workers to build it

With the new Deep Well Ranch master-planned community project planned for vacant ranchland along Highway 89 between Prescott and Chino Valley comes a question.
Who’s going to build it all?
The plan involves construction of about 10,500 homes over several decades.
But right now, the labor pool is far too shallow to support that, with smaller developments being built as well.
The president of the Yavapai County Contractors Association, Sandy Griffis, said there are “absolutely not” enough skilled laborers in the Quad Cities to build a project of that size.
