The Town’s Office of Economic Development acts as the first point of contact for retailers, other commercial businesses and their representatives and seeks to support and assist with their new business or development. The Town’s Economic Development Coordinator can provide a myriad of data points necessary to help companies during their site location and/or due diligence processes. If the data needed is not listed on this website, interested parties are encouraged to e-mail or call the Economic Development Coordinator directly with their request. Additionally, the Economic Development Coordinator can provide direction and support to new retail/commercial businesses by helping to guide and explain Town development processes and by helping a potential new business and/or their representatives connect with necessary stakeholders both locally, regionally and throughout the State of Arizona in both the public and private sectors. Lastly, it is the goal of the Economic Development Coordinator as well as the entire Town Staff of Prescott Valley to provide superior customer service to residents, business owners/operators, and their representatives. While the primary support functions mentioned above encompass frequent responsibilities of the Economic Development Coordinator as it relates to supporting external stakeholders, it is not intended to be a full description of assistance activities. If you have any questions or concerns that you feel the Economic Development Coordinator may be able to address, please do not hesitate to reach out with your request and everything feasible will be done to help fulfill your request.

Incentives

The Town of Prescott Valley does not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to economic incentives but rather tailors incentive packages to fit the specific project. The use of incentives is tied to the number of jobs a project will create, the size of the capital investment in the community and the anticipated sales tax revenue that will be generated by your project. Please contact the Economic Development Coordinator today with any questions you may have regarding incentives.
