J. Peter Armenta
Community Development Manager, Central Arizona Association of Governments
J. Peter Armenta, a Superior and Pinal County native, has worked on environmental issues in Pinal County for the last 7 years. While serving the Town of Kearny, Peter developed, through public participation, the Town’s first Water Conservation and Contingency Plan as well as sitting on the Governor’s Drought Task Force Regional Foucs Groups. Today, he administers Section 208 of the Federal Clean Water Act for Gila and Pinal Counties, which guides water quality protection as well as planning for future water reuse and recharge options. Peter’s role with CAAG provides the ability to see issues on a Regional scale, environmental or otherwise, and has helped many government and utility agencies make decisions based on these Regional principles. Along with his environmental work, Peter is also a trained facilitator and conflict resolution specialist, and is also the Director of Pinal County Town Hall, a grassroots movement that enables and empowers those who live, work, or visit Pinal County the ability to improve the County’s quality of life.
