Peoria is an idyllic community that enjoys a thriving economy and healthy growth. Sustaining this positive trend is the relationship that the Chamber of Commerce shares with the local businesses.
City administrators cooperate with the business community and take strides to promote the growth of economic opportunities and jobs. Unemployment runs at about 7.50 percent, or slightly under the U.S. national average.
Tax stewardship has also been a core value of city leaders. Revenue is plowed back into job creation rather than squandered. This has in turn helped them keep the tax burden lower than the national average which provides greater incentive for business owners set up shop.
Sunny skies and the warm desert climate also help promote economic growth. Golf is a huge economic force in the greater Phoenix metro area and it certainly comes into play in Peoria. The golf industry attracts players, conventions and tournaments. Some of the finest resort courses are just minutes from Peoria's bustling downtown district.
With over 200 private and public courses available in the Phoenix metro area, it is no coincidence that Peoria Pines Golf and Restaurant is a one of the many top-ranked facilities.
The weather is almost always excellent for golf and the upscale resorts offer more than just challenging play. Most have spectacular membership packages that include spa time, lessons, pro shop and exquisite five-star dining.
