Lundberg Named New RADC Coordinator

Potash Projects Hold Big Potential For Corridor

Tuesday, November 1st, 2011

The Real AZ Corridor is Arizona’s energy and economic development corridor. It may also turn out to be America’s potash corridor, with multiple potash market development projects at work in the Holbrook area. It is becoming apparent that the Real AZ Corridor could become one of the world’s leading, long-term producers of potash. That could mean hundreds of construction and mining jobs in the Corridor  — and not just now, but for many years to come.

Learn about Passport Potash’s Holbrook Basin project by watching this informative video HERE.

Learn about the American West Potash project, which is also located in the Holbrook Basin, through this company presentation HERE.

Potash is only one of the many resources that put the ‘R’ in the REAL AZ Corridor, where REAL stands for Resources, Energy, Access and Lifestyle.

Video Series on White Mountain Stewardship Contract

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

The new Informational Videos page on the Real AZ Corridor website features video clips on energy projects and topics that are important to the 100-mile wide Corridor. A five-part series just posted online talks about the White Mountain Stewardship Contract, which is credited with containing the Wallow Fire in some areas. It was also the forerunner to the Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI), which will bring even greater forest management practices and new industries to the Real AZ Corridor.

Real AZ Corridor Wins Governors Award and Continues To Move Forward

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

The Real AZ Development Council  and the Real AZ Corridor won the Governor’s Excellence Award for Innovative Economic Development at last year’s Regional Development Conference in Flagstaff. Since that time, the Corridor has continued to move forward, adding new partners and increasing its visibility across the country.   

The Real AZ Corridor is an exceptional example of the effectiveness of emphasizing Collaboration versus Competition. The Real AZ Development Council includes two Arizona counties (Navajo and Apache) and nine communities (Winslow, Holbrook, Snowflake, Taylor, Show Low, Pinetop-Lakeside, Eagar, Springerville and St. Johns). A gateway regional website leads to the Corridor at www.RealAZCorridor.com      

Collaboration is THE Game-Changer when it comes to Regionalism … and to productive economic development. Communities that work together as a Region make it easier for developers, business owners and investors to bring beneficial projects — and jobs — to their area. When civic leaders, business owners and decision makers choose to work together for the entire Region, everyone wins.

The Real AZ Corridor is Arizona’s Energy and Economic Development corridor. Arizona’s energy future will be built here — and it is already at work!
