FLORENCE — The Pinal County Board of Supervisors approved agreements with two state universities Wednesday related to the future Arizona Technology Corridor through Pinal County.
The Technology Corridor will highlight the county’s business clusters near the interstate highways and promote the area as a place to build and collaborate with similar industries, according to plans.
The board approved an agreement between Pinal County and the Arizona Board of Regents for the planning and implementation of the corridor. The agreement gives Pinal County the benefit of University of Arizona’s research, planning and leadership, Tim Kanavel, Pinal County economic development manager, told the board. Total cost to the county will be $225,000 over an 18-month period.
