Copper Corridor Community Tourism Planning (2015-2017)

School of Community Resources and Development

Center for Sustainable Tourism

The Center for Sustainable Tourism and ASU tourism undergraduate and graduate students worked with the Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition to study Pinal County communities along Route 179 from Superior to Oracle for tourism opportunities. This work included surveying event attendees and Arizona Trail users, and tallying visitor logs at several local tourism information centers. ASU led a year of community planning meetings to create and prioritize tourism and recreation strategies. This project was funded by Arizona Office of Tourism through the Arizona Council for Enhancing Recreation and Tourism. The team included faculty Vogt and graduate students Azzi and Roberg.
