In the Valley’s storied history of community and economic development, it’s unlikely there has been a project of this magnitude.
Six municipalities. Two Native American communities. Arizona State University. Salt River Project. Businesses and business organizations such as Valley Partnership. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Maricopa County.
All of those entities are collaborating on the Rio Salado Project, a grand vision for civic identity – an iconic landmark for the Valley which fosters significant economic, recreational, and regional water management value of a long-ignored lifeline.
