A proposed semi-truck manufacturing plant in Coolidge could be a tax boon for an Eloy school district.
On Thursday board members for the Santa Cruz Valley Union High School District approved supporting a Foreign Trade Zone designation for Nikola Corp., a hydrogen-electric truck manufacturer that plans to build a massive production facility in Coolidge. Coolidge City Manager Rick Miller said the location of the plant is actually much closer to Eloy than Coolidge and is inside the high school district’s boundaries.
The facility, which is anticipated to bring more than 1,700 jobs to the region, will be located near Houser and Vail roads along State Route 87 — land that is part of Saint Holdings LLC’s inland port project.’
