Leaders in the economic development arena say Pinal County is primed for growth.

A panel speaking before members of the Pinal Alliance for Economic Growth said Pinal County communities should be ready for site selectors long before representatives from major companies get to town. Susan Dumon, vice president for economic development of Sun Corridor Inc., said cities need to be cognizant of what they have to offer.

“You have to be realistic and know your market,” Dumon said.

Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, told the assembled economic development, city and county leaders: “You only get one shot.”
