Maricopa, formerly known as Maricopa Wells, is a resident’s oasis in the desert. As one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, as well as one of the hottest places in the country to establish a business, residents will be hard pressed to find a better place in which to live a suburban life with a small-town country feel.
Underlying Maricopa’s small town charm is a thoroughly modern city. The area is a hotbed for both growing and established companies alike. Companies offering medical services, interior design, custom pools and green energy have recently moved to the region. Other business opportunities are a short 15- to 45- minute commute away.
Housing options range from ranch style homes and single-family detached homes with the option for an added casita or private pool. Many of these homes are located in communities that are rich in neighborhood features such as community pools, walking trails, parks and sports equipment.
Perhaps the biggest recent addition to Maricopa is the Copper Sky Multigenerational Center, which opened a year ago, providing residents with a much needed recreational and leisure destination. It houses an indoor athletic center and a fully-equipped regional park. And there’s more to come to this growing city.
Here, school aged children in grades preschool through twelve, are served by the Maricopa Unified School District. The four charter schools garner rave reviews from parents as well as the district itself. Higher education offerings are just a short distance away in neighboring communities.
With three-bedroom, single level homes averaging in the low $100,000s, it is still very affordable for many to own a piece of the American Dream.
