Supervisor Goodman Updates The Community On His Week
By The Office of Supervisor Goodman
It has been a busy couple of weeks for Supervisor Goodman’s office. The ACC Hearings have taken up a lot of Mr. Goodman’s time and attention in his efforts to help the San Tan Valley residents ongoing problem with the water utility. The proceedings are still ongoing and we can anticipate at least another week of hearings. No action has been decided in the case as of yet, however Supervisor Goodman asks that residents remain engaged. We would not have made the progress that has developed without you, the residents, staying on top of this situation and holding people accountable.
On Monday, April 23rd, at the Board of Supervisors meeting, Mr. Goodman requested that his fellow supervisors allow him to serve as a mediator and facilitator in discussions with residents regarding the future of San Tan Valley. His ultimate goal is to provide ALL constituents with the support and representation they need as San Tan Valley continues to grow and develop.
Additionally, the Plan San Tan Valley initiative is rolling forward. Several members of the community have met with Supervisor Goodman this past week to discuss the future of San Tan Valley. As always, Mr. Goodman looks to our residents to help guide the progress of our area. If you have any questions regarding the Plan San Tan Valley initiative, you can contact his office at Mike.

Supervisor Goodman also met with representatives from Public Works to learn more about the construction in San Tan Valley and how it will impact residents. Of note, Hunt Highway will be closed from the new Gantzel/Johnson Ranch Blvd intersection to Red Road starting on Monday, April 30. Residents south of that area should plan for potential longer commutes as residents within San Tan Valley and our neighbors from Florence and Coolidge get used to the new traffic flow.
This upcoming week, Mr. Goodman will be touring the Harmony Adult Living Solutions building located in San Tan Valley. Owner of the facility, Barbara Z. Pietraszek, brings 30 years of experience in nursing to San Tan Valley in the hopes to provide seniors with a better quality of life for those that can no longer live independently due to age or medical issues.
Friday, May 4th, Mr. Goodman will be attending the Youth Advisory Committee which is holding the last of several planning session in which they have discussed ways in which they can work together, alongside the county, to meet the goals of San Tan Valley. Getting the next generation of San Tan Valley residents engaged and educated regarding the challenges and needs of our area today and in the future has been a top priority for Supervisor Goodman.
Lastly, the Master Gardeners are teaming up with Supervisor Goodman and Florence Unified School District to plant a botanical garden which will be maintained with the help of students at Mountain Vista Academy.
Supervisor Goodman and his staff look forward to a busy week ahead. If you see us out and about, be sure to say “hi” as we love to hear from residents as we journey forward. Stay safe and let’s all try to keep a level head as we manage our way through the road construction.
