Who would have thought that Sahuarita would become more than a sleepy bedroom community?

Sahuarita was incorporated as a town in 1994 with about 2,000 residents. Twenty-four years later, it boasts 30,000 residents, making it one of the largest communities southeast of Tucson.

Sahuarita saw a 600 percent increase in population between 2000 and 2010. The growth rate has since slowed to about 2 percent yearly, and the significant population demands more business development.

A 2018 citizen survey administered by the town revealed that almost 25 percent of respondents would decide whether they would stay in Sahuarita based on the availability of local shops and restaurants.
