Maricopa became Arizona's 88th municipality when it was incorporated in October 2003. Over the last decade, it has become Arizona's fastest growing community, transforming from a quiet town of under 5,000 residents to a bustling city of more than 54,000 almost overnight.  Situated at the epicenter of Maricopa and Pinal counties, the City of Maricopa's location offers a vibrant, family-friendly and favorable cost environment for people and business. Maricopans are among the most highly educated in the US, with 25 percent of our adults holding a bachelor's degree or higher and 70% of adults having attended some college including certificate programs and associate degrees.

In Maricopa, the business, government, education and civic sectors work closely together to plan for and create opportunities that will grow a sustainable economy - one that reflects the most advanced technologies in the world and at the same time retains the very qualities that make Maricopa a truly wonderful place in which to live, raise a family, be educated and do business.
