The City of Maricopa is in discussions to take over operation of the Seven Ranches Domestic Water Improvement District, a move that could provide tax relief and enhanced service to its customers.
The district is composed of about 275 acres south of Honeycutt Road between Porter and White and Parker roads. It includes the Circle K store, Sequoia Pathway Academy, the Arizona Storage Co. and the U.S. Postal Service annex.
According to Maricopa City Manager Rick Horst, if an acquisition is negotiated, the city would assume management and operational control of the district and its infrastructure. He stressed that the district and city are being transparent about the potential acquisition, and he is cautiously optimistic about the deal moving forward.
