Puerto Peñasco and Pima County create Sister Region

With the goal of strengthening economic development and cultural ties on both sides of the border, on Tuesday, February 2nd, the Pima County Board of Supervisors issued a Proclamation declaring Puerto Peñasco and Pima County as “A Sister Region.”

Puerto Peñasco Urban Development Director, Fausto Soto Lizárraga, along with Economic Development Director Rubén Sánchez Lizárraga, visited Tucson on behalf of Mayor Kiko Munro for the proclamation ceremony led by Pima County Supervisor Board Chair Sharon Bronson.

One of the reasons given behind this Proclamation was the recent visit of Mayor Munro to Pima County, during the Jan. 25th-26th “office exchange” with Pima County District 4 Supervisor Ray Carroll, who attended the ceremony along with County Supervisors Ally Miller, Ramón Valadez, and Richard Elías, from Pima County Districts 1, 2, and 5 respectively.

The Proclamation itself establishes that “Pima County, AZ joins Puerto Peñasco, Sonora to form “A Sister Region” relationship patterned after the “Sister City” structure; and the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor of Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexico hereby encourage their respective staffs to exchange information, cooperate with one another, and jointly develop a mutually satisfactory working relationship between the two regions – all designed to increase economic opportunity and prosperity.”
