September Blog
  Things are stirring!

This September has been and is busy month! On the 12th we had our SAEDG Luncheon. The topic was SunZia's project development for the 515 mile transmission line that will run through the states of New Mexico and Arizona. Lunch from Magaly's was provided by SunZia.  We had a very good turnout. A diverse group of 47 people were in attendance and actively involved in the conversation. Our next luncheon will be held on November 7th. More information on that meeting to follow.

SAEDG's board meeting will be on Tuesday, September 19th. Good things are stirring and there will be a lot of things to discuss regarding future endeavors.  On September 22nd SAEDG Members will be going on a tour to the Excelsior/Johnson mine. We are proud to have Excelsior as a member of SAEDG and are looking forward to the tour of the mine.  We will be heading out for another members tour at the mine sometime this coming spring, details to follow.

As always, we would love to have those that are not members join SAEDG as a member! Please contact us for further information on becoming a member of a group that is promoting the economic development of this area.

On October 5th SAEDG will be in attendance for the 20th Annual Benson Economic Outlook Luncheon that will be held at the Benson school. This meeting will be a review of the Benson economy over the past year and the economic outlook for the coming year.  The information will help us to develop the best ways we can assist our community in this coming year.

SAEDG's monthly Newsletter will be sent out at the end of this month, be on the lookout for it!

July - Getting Ready for the Future!

This month we are revving things up with our Asset Inventory and Certification Sites process.  

The Asset Inventory project is a gathering place for information on all available Land and Commercial sites for Sale/Lease in the Benson area and Cochise County.  We currently have over 40 listings and are going strong.  With the Villages at Vigneto development coming to Benson our office has been getting inquiries from buyers who are considering our area.  We are not working as brokers but are a gathering place of information for potential buyers who are interest in the Benson area.  When an interested party comes to us we can look through what we have listed and suggest properties that would fit their needs and give them contact information for the broker/seller. 

We hope this project will be of great assistance to our local businesses and to those who are invested in our area. If you have a property you would like us to include in our Asset Inventory program please contact us with the details.

The Certified Sites program is a Certification through the Arizona Commerce Authority.  We have applied for certification on three sites and are working toward getting as many Certified sites as possible for our area.  This is an especially good tool to get our area noticed by Site Selectors and the AZ Commerce Authority.

Get in on the action and become a Member of SAEDG!  Applications for membership are available on our Website at or email
