Do NOT move to Florence, I repeat do NOT move to Florence Arizona. The crime rate is DOUBLE what they post and they have a HUGE opioid and meth problem in the Town of Florence. Pinal County officials do NOT give a crap about anyone who desires/keeps their property up, thereby keeping values up. Nope, they ONLY help and support dirty scoundrels who take a piece of NICE property and create a JUNKYARD, driving down values all around them. I've been reporting a nasty, decrepit camper that has NO title, therefore NO tag, which is AGAINST their own policies. On the SAME property, this owner brought an old farm tank (also against code unless it's a WORKING over 3 acres, this property is NOT and is 1.25 acres), which rolled around for almost 2 years, damaging my fence in 3 places and another property owner's fence, THEY DO NOTHING. There are PILES and PILES of old dish washers, dryers, washing machine and fence materials. What does Mike Boyd at Code Compliance do? He gives this junkyard master a free pass for almost 3 years! Maximum time for getting property up to code is 90 days, per THEIR rules. Meanwhile, I'm 60, widowed and disabled, my property value went down $10,000 because of the NEW junkyard (which is NOT zoned for this) in front of my property. They NEVER return my calls, even after they invited me to in order to get updates. I have to get nasty and make harsh demands, then they call. WTF is up with that? NO tax PAYING citizen ought to have to act that way to get a response. Hispanic men working at code compliance, giving a Hispanic property owner pass after pass after pass. Being white and female, does NOTHING for you here, in fact, from EVERYTHING I've seen, it works AGAINST you.I lived in Maricopa County for 27 years before moving to Pinal in 2012 and I have NEVER seen this kind of 1900's hillbilly treatment in ANY other part of the state. So, please do yourself a favor and look at other counties where your life, including protection of constitutional and property rights are protected in a manner that ought to be found everywhere in our great republic of these United States.

Health Care for SeniorsWhile everything I have read has said Florence is a very safe city, I cannot find anything about healthcare --doctors, medical centers, hospitals and their quality. I have read conflicting reports as to air quality actual weather quality as to mosquitoes during the rainy season. Anyone who has any information as to life in Florence would be appreciated. Thank you.
