The Casa Grande Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously and enthusiastically approved a site plan request and a conditional use permit for a block wall for Lucid Motors Thursday evening.
“Absolutely, yes,” Commissioner Tammy Anderson said during the roll call vote on the plan.
Lucid Motors, a luxury electric vehicle company, announced plans to build a manufacturing plant on the west side of Casa Grande in November 2016. The $700 million plant is expected to employ about 745 people in its first phase and up to 2,000 workers when it is completely built out. The plant is expected to manufacture about 130,000 vehicles a year, once the plant is completely finished, with a sticker price of about $100,000, the company has said.
