As a decade comes to a close, another is just beginning.
Maricopa began the last decade with a population around 35,000 and is entering 2020 with an additional 19,000 Maricopans, a total of 54,700. This is unusual growth, especially for a city with just 16 years under its belt, but most Maricopans know this is not an ordinary place.
City Manager Rick Horst knows how special the city of Maricopa is and some of what’s ahead in the future.
