We’ve come a long way, baby!
Goodyear is one of the fastest growing cities in the United States with more people and businesses calling Goodyear home every day. Goodyear City Manager Julie Arendall will talk about the expansive growth in Goodyear, and how we have poised ourselves to be the next economic hot spot. She will also provide key highlights on major projects in the works and on the horizon for our great city.
For decades, our growing community has been asking for a dynamic place we can proudly call the “heart” of our city -- a gathering place for family and friends to enjoy festivals, concerts and parades. With the announcement that Goodyear is partnering with Globe Corporation, the city is closer than ever to making that vision a reality.
At 10 a.m. Monday, March 8, Goodyear City Manager Julie Arendall will explain what the Goodyear Civic Square project entails. Globe Corporation owns 47 acres north of McDowell Road and west of Harkins Theater, near 150th Drive. Goodyear Civic Square will be at the center and will include a new city hall, a library, a two-acre park/gathering place, and upscale Class A office space. Globe is confident that, if it builds much-needed office space, jobs will follow, which will bring more people to the area during the day. More people mean more businesses, including restaurants, retail stores and entertainment venues coming to the area.
Arendall was appointed Goodyear's city manager in February 2018. She has more than 20 years of local government experience and is a credentialed city manager through the International City Management Association.
