Maricopa has been Arizona’s fastest growing community since incorporating in October 2003. Over the last decade, it has transformed from a quiet town of under 2,000 residents to a bustling city of more than 45,000. New residents continue to be drawn by Maricopa’s convenient access to Greater Phoenix (just 20 minutes south of Phoenix), family-oriented ambiance, affordable housing and community safety.
The City is home to the University of Arizona’s Maricopa Agricultural Center, USDA Arid-Land Agricultural Research Center, Volkswagen’s North American Proving Grounds, and Pinal Energy Ethanol Plant. This year, Central Arizona College opened the first phase of its 217-acre Maricopa Campus.
Maricopa is a business-friendly municipality with a One Stop Shop Development Center, a Fast Track Permitting Program, and an aggressive economic development strategy. The community offers a large supply of development ready sites and a highly skilled workforce.
