Avondale ArizonaNestled at the base of the scenic Estrella Mountains where the Agua Fria and Gila Rivers meet, Avondale prides itself as a wonderful community for people to live, work and play. As one of the area's fastest growing communities, the City strives to provide open spaces and recreational amenities, and works to attract quality businesses and employers to the area.[show / hide]

Avondale's founding father, William "Billy" G. Moore, arrived in Arizona in the late 1860s, settling near the Agua Fria River in 1880. Billy Moore called his settlement "Coldwater, Arizona" - apparently both for the river and the water that flowed from a local spring. Commerce was at the heart of Avondale even then. Avondale was one of the very earliest stage stations in the region, supplying travelers with provisions on their way from Tucson to northern Arizona and California.

With over 240,000 residents, Chandler is a vibrant community with an enviable quality of life, a progressive vision for success and a strong educational system that includes a growing state university presence in its downtown. [show / hide]

In 1891, Dr. Alexander John Chandler, the first veterinary surgeon for the territory of Arizona, bought 80 acres of land from the federal government south of Mesa in the Salt River Valley. By the turn of the century, Dr. Chandler owned an 18,000 acre ranch. Dr. Chandler sought the help of planners and architects in subdividing his ranch and drawing up a townsite map. He then advertised nationally the sale of Chandler Ranch sites. On May 17, 1912, Dr. Chandler opened the townsite office.

City of Chandler City HallIn recent years, Chandler's borders have expanded and its population has boomed -- from 30,000 in 1980 to more than 240,000 today - making Chandler the fourth largest city in the state.

The population is expected to hit 330,000 by 2040. [show / hide]

Gilbert downtownIn 1902, the Arizona Eastern Railway asked for donations of rights of way in order to establish a rail line between Phoenix and Florence, Arizona. A rail siding was established on property owned by William "Bobby" Gilbert. The siding, and the town that sprang up around it, eventually became known as Gilbert. Gilbert was a prime farming community, fueled by the construction of Roosevelt Dam and the Eastern and Consolidated Canals in 1911. It remained an agriculture town for many years, and was known as the "Hay Capital of the World" until the late 1920s.

Gilbert Water TowerThe town began to take its current shape during the 1970s when the Town Council approved a strip annexation that encompassed 53 square miles of county land. Although the population was only 1,971 in 1970, the Council realized that Gilbert would eventually grow and develop much like the neighboring communities of Tempe, Mesa and Chandler. This proved to be a farsighted decision as the town positioned itself for growth in the 1980s and beyond.

City of Glendale
With a quaint historic district, Glendale is known for having a small-town feel despite being the fifth largest city in Arizona. According to Prevention Magazine, tree-lined down town streets and trails for outdoor recreation helped rank Glendale as number 12 in the top 100 most walk-able U.S. cities. [show / hide]

As the largest city in the West Valley, Glendale's history of growth was influenced by its early infrastructure connections. In 1882, William J. Murphy joined three Arizona builders, M.W. Kales, William A. Hancock and Clark Churchill, to lead the Arizona Canal Co. project, bringing water to the west valley. By the late 1880s, several homesteaders began to settle around the new canal and the pathway for a line of the Santa Fe Railroad, linking the Salt River Valley to Prescott and northern Arizona.

World War II brought the birth of Thunderbird Field to train civilian pilots for the Army. While this field was being built in 1941, the Army was busy working on a larger base 10 miles west of Glendale - Luke Air Force Base, named for the first pilot to receive a Congressional Medal of Honor, Lt. Frank Luke Jr.

Luke Air Force Base today continues its tradition of training many of the nation's top military pilots. In 2012, the Department of Defense announced that Luke Air Force Base will serve as the new F-35 training site.
Glendale Caitlin CourtSeveral higher education campuses are located in Glendale, including Midwestern University and Glendale Community College. Thunderbird School of Global Management, located on the grounds of the original Thunderbird Field, is ranked among the top schools for international business.

Over the past decade, Glendale has transformed itself into a destination for national sporting events. Glendale is home of the Arizona Cardinals NFL team and Coyotes NHL team. The Glendale's Sports and Entertainment District is a major sports destination in Arizona. The University of Phoenix stadium and Jobing.com arena are host sites for the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, BCS National College Football Championship games, and the 2008 and 2015 Super Bowls.

Goodyear is a city with a rich, rewarding quality of life and tremendous community spirit. A mere 20 minutes west of downtown Phoenix, the city offers the advantages of a small community, with the nearby cultural and entertainment resources of the big city. [show / hide]



Goodyear's scenic mountain views, desert vistas, wide open spaces, golf courses, and parks have now attracted 67,000 residents who are among the most affluent and best educated in the state. The community, located along the Gila River west of Phoenix, got its start when Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company sent its young executive, John Litchfield, to Arizona to find a place to grow cotton, to replace sources that became inaccessible during World War I. When the small community around the Goodyear Farms incorporated in 1946 it was known as Goodyear. Today, it is home to Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Major League Baseball Spring Training for both the Cincinnati Reds and the Cleveland Indians.

In the West Valley of Phoenix, Goodyear has been the recipient of much of the Valley's recent growth. Between 2000 and 2006, the city was the fourth fastest growing suburban city under 100,000 in the nation according to Forbes Magazine. At build out, Goodyear's population is predicted to be well above 600,000.

With spectacular master-planned communities hosting country clubs and golf courses; excellent schools and hospitals; a wide variety of dining and shopping opportunities; and trail systems among the Estrella Mountains' foothills and adjoining valleys fostering an active outdoor lifestyle, Goodyear has been planned with "unsurpassed quality" in mind.

Mesa, like many of the cities in the Valley, had a significant role in World War II. Falcon Field Airport and Williams Air Force Base were built in 1941 to provide training for World War II pilots, Falcon Field for the British Royal Air Force and Williams for U.S. pilots.

In 1867, Jack Swilling organized the Swilling Irrigation Canal Company, and moved into the Salt River Valley. The same year, the company began digging a canal to divert some of the water of the Salt River onto the lands of the Valley. By 1868, a small colony had formed approximately four miles east of the present city. Swilling's Mill became the name of the area. It was later changed to Helling Mill, then Mill City, and years later, East Phoenix. Finally, it was suggested to name the town Phoenix, because the new town would spring from the ruins of a former civilization. The 11th Territorial Legislature passed the "Phoenix Charter Bill" in 1881, which made Phoenix an incorporated city. The state Capitol made its permanent home in Phoenix when a 10-acre lot was donated at the west end of Washington Street.
