Economic and Community Development is a committed team that works to make Maricopa a prosperous community by actively engaging citizens to foster a thriving city.

You may have questions about the development process. Fortunately, you are not on your own in the City of Maricopa - each project is assigned a personal Project Liaison to coordinate staff processes, provide assistance to entrepreneurs, and help ensure a smooth ascension of your venture. Not only is Maricopa open for business - there is no better community in Arizona for business.

Maricopa has gone paperless using the VIP Portal, your resource to report concerns, schedule inspections, print and apply for permits, pay fees, upload plans, and track your project. Some permits still require an application to be filled out and submitted online, for a list of current applications click here. Before you get started, be sure to check out our tutorial here.

Planning and Zoning Commission Approves Multifamily Housing Request for Maricopa!

Post Date:07/28/2020 1:24 PM
A request by Les Partch, on behalf of Chrystal and Kent O’Jon, was granted approval of their Development Review Permit for O’Jon Terrace Apartments. The proposed development will consist of 27 units – a mixture of one- and two-bedroom apartment homes.


The complex will be located on the southeast corner of Honeycutt Road and Porter Road, behind the Circle K. When completed, the project will provide additional housing diversity for the growing community of Maricopa. A range of housing options can contribute to more diverse, lively, and economically sustainable communities by offering an alternative for all stages of life.
