Apache Junction & Gold Canyon News

Nestled at the foot of the Superstition Mountains, Apache Junction is strategically positioned as the eastern gateway into the Greater Phoenix metro area and the western entry to the Tonto National Forest’s recreation venues. This geography, coupled with a western atmosphere, make the city appealing to residents and visitors alike.

Along with its many attractive qualities, the city of Apache Junction – like most communities – faces unique sustainability challenges as it continues to grow. It is these challenges that form the basis of a partnership with Arizona State University’s Project Cities program.

Project Cities is a university-community partnership where ASU students in designated courses work directly with a local city on a menu of co-determined, sustainability-related projects. The students – who represent multiple disciplines – research challenges chosen by the city, then propose sustainability solutions that enable the city to achieve better environmental, economic and social balance.
