This is the first such Open House the District has offered to businesses in the area.

Nearly 200 businesses, both large and small, are planning to attend the event. The District’s sheer size, with its area of responsibility extending into four states, has attracted businesses from as far away as San Diego and Las Vegas in addition to businesses in Phoenix and across Arizona.
