A public hearing is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday to determine the amount of taxes Gateway of the Americas landowners will pay to support a county service area to manage utilities for the development.
The Gateway development is aimed at attracting industry adjacent to the Calexico East Port of Entry and could create thousands of jobs.
The service area would manage funding for the development's lighting and maintenance and operation of sewer and water plants. The taxes also will provide money to offset the impact of traffic in the area.
Once the service area is operating, the county will be able to start the process to issue building permits to landowners.
