COMMUNITY & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Links
Pima County, Arizona
Pima County, the second largest of the four original counties, was created in 1864 and included approximately all of southern Arizona acquired from Mexico by the Gadsden Purchase. Settlement of the region goes back to the arrival in the 1690s of the Spanish who encountered Native Americans already living here. Pima County is unique in the way it has developed its land resources. Instead of simply selling off its land to the areas museums, stadiums and heritage attractions, the County has chosen to lease it to organizations over time, while maintaining ownership. This in turn has created a strong partnership between the County and the leaseholders. Some of the best attractions in Southern Arizona are found right here in Pima County.
