In Arizona, population size isn’t the only thing that’s expanding. City limits are getting their turn as the southern border town, Nogales, is looking to expand its boundaries to grow its population. This isn’t the first time that annexation has been proposed as Mayor Arturo Garino, who served previously from 2011-2014, tried once before.
Nogales, Arizona has about 21,000 residents who call it home. Compare this to sister city Nogales, Sonora, which has ten times as many (212,000) residents. The Arizona town relies on sales tax revenue to boost its economic status, so increasing population would help that cause.
