San Tan Valley is Getting Its Own Library

groundbreakingstv

​An official groundbreaking took place February 18, 2020 at the site of the new Pinal County Government Complex in San Tan Valley.  

The complex, which was approved by the Board of Supervisors in 2019, will bring several government services to San Tan Valley.  

"San Tan Valley is the largest and most densely populated unincorporated area in the state," opened Leo Lew, Deputy County Manager, "and we are happy to bring services locally to the community here."  

The 50,000 sq ft complex is composed of two buildings. The north building will be 30,000 square feet and a south building will be 20,000 square feet.  The complex will house the following services and departments:

  1. Pinal County Library
  2. PCSO sub-station
  3. Family Advocacy Center
  4. Community Development services
  5. Clerk of the Superior Court services
  6. Assessors, Recorders and Treasurers
  7. Adult and Juvenile Probation offices
  8. Community Multi Purposes Rooms
  9. Board of Supervisor and staff office

$16 million needed to fund this complex was part of a larger $63 million bonding package and will save the county more than $200k per year on buildings it currently leases. The complex will be located at 31500 N Schnepf Road just east of the Central Arizona College Campus on the northside of Bella Vista, located in Supervisor District 5.

Supervisor Rios shared that over the years, Pinal County has brought access to two Sheriff Substations, the Pioneer Justice of the Peace office, a Public Works Maintenance Yard, Family Advocacy Center and Pinal County Public Health Services​ to San Tan Valley. In addition, 24 public works projects are currently taking place in San Tan Valley. "You have to put the money where the population is and San Tan Valley is the largest community in Pinal County."

"It's about time, we got a county complex here," said Supervisor Todd House. "San Tan Valley has been overlooked in the past and I've tried to be first on the list to get things done for San Tan Valley here. As the area continues to grow, we know that San Tan Valley is a region of great importance to Pinal County and we hope you'll be able to use this complex to its fullest."

One of the most exciting additions to the county complex is the creationg of a library.  The library which will take up about 9,500 square feet of the complex in the northern building, will contain a study area, kids and adult areas, computers carrels, community multi purpose rooms and conference rooms. "The opportunity to start a new library in a community is rare," said Denise Keller, Pinal County Librarian. "I've visualized a library in San Tan Valley for a long time and it is so rewarding to be able to plan this library today."

The complex has an estimated grand opening date of March 2021.

I think this is a great opportunity for everyone, not just having easier access to public resources but hopefully jobs too
