Maricopa is a growing, vibrant community, trying to find it's way from tiny farming community to suburban village/town - much as the City of Chandler was doing just a few short year ago. This means addressing the sometimes awful smell, the lack of options for commuters to the urban Phoenix area, and the significant lack of healthcare facilities (ie: a hospital). However, one can be truly encouraged in these areas because the local government is both aware and engaged, and they seem to actively seek input from residents - which is unusual! Housing remains affordable and new homes are currently under construction. Oddly, there are no multi-unit structures here - no apartments or condominiums - which will need to be addressed in the near future if the town wants to attract young professionals who don't have the time/desire to deal with the issues/maintenance of owning a house. Many retirees are looking to move on from the chores of home ownership, too, and seek other options which are not available. While Maricopa actually covers a lot larger area than most people realize, most of the businesses - shopping, dining, banking, etc - are congregated along the 347 which makes it convenient to get all your errands done without having to move your car. New businesses are moving to the area all the time - recently Goodwill, Dollar Tree, Ross, and Burger King opened in the Fry's shopping plaza. There is plenty to do here - from top-name concerts at the Ak-Chin Pavilion and slots and bingo at Harrah's to activities targeted to teens at their multi-tainment venue - to classes and athletics and social/self-help groups which take place at Copper Sky and around the community - a wide array of worship choices - a locally produced magazine and newspaper which are distributed free to all residents keeping us up to date on all areas of life in our town and on up-coming events - the police force struggles to keep up with a growing population yet remain true to their calling but they do an outstanding job, I think. Nationally the role of police in our society has moved away from the traditional "Officer Friendly". There are lots of places where it would be unwise to just casually saunter up to an officer on duty but in Maricopa, the cops are still the good guys. I got pulled over the third day I moved here for speeding and the officer was nice enough to take the time to explain to me where and when the limit changed right there after the tracks and let me go with a warning. All in all, if you want to be a part of the evolution of a rural farming community into a modern suburban town and are willing to accept all which that entails, good and bad, and want to live outside the Phoenix metropolitan area so you don't have to "emissions-test" your vehicle, come take a look at Maricopa!
