Earlier this year, staff attended a retail trade show that has resulted in several Eloy site visits. This focused attention has laser focused our agenda to attract new businesses and investment to Eloy. One suggestion we heard loud and clear was the need for a Hotel Feasibility Analysis-an important cornerstone for our efforts to attract new hotels and related businesses. In mid-August, the Community Development Department issued a Solicitation of Qualifications (SOQ), for the sole purpose of completing that analysis. That work is expected to be completed by the 4th quarter of 2019. Several hotels have already expressed an interest in an Eloy location. The hope is that the results of this analysis will be the catalyst for them to invest in our Community.
