CASA GRANDE — Casa Grande is booming and the future is bright, Mayor Craig McFarland said at his annual state of the city address Wednesday.
“It has been a really, really good period for the city,” he said.
City housing permits are up 322% since 2018, McFarland said. Permits for single-family houses this year have already exceeded 140 permits. Permits for new manufacturing businesses have increased by 19% since 2018 and the city’s commercial value has increased by about 101%.
