Apache Corners is a multi-year community and economic planning effort by the Tonto Apache Tribal Nation. Beginning in 2020, Tonto Apache focused on what economic opportunities existed that would benefit their Nations economy and benefit the region. Approximately 75 acres on the reservation will be used to build the future Tonto Apache economy! (including trust land on the east and west sides of A-87) is slated for development with an effort to capture dollars leaking outside the economy and stimulate not only the Tonto Apache economy, but the entire region. The total development is slated for a mixed-use approach focused on building an economy from their initial businesses with the Tonto Apache government, Mazatlán Casino and Hotel, Convenience Store and Tire Shop. Future developments in the first phase will include an entertainment district with a distillery and additional restaurants, two convenience stores, a family entertainment center and infrastructure improvements. Additional developments will focus on a health center, training and educational partnership, grocery store, cannabis dispensary, warehousing, and light manufacturing. The plan is to connect parcels on the east and west side of A-87 through finding ways for pedestrian safety, traffic calming and efficiency improvements. The total impacts to the Tonto Apache Nation and regional economy are significant!
