PHOENIX — Think about the Valley in 2002. No State Farm Stadium, Y2K, downtown Phoenix was a ghost town after 3 p.m.
Now imagine what the Valley will look like 20 years from now.
“We’re projecting we’re going to add another million and a half people to Maricopa County by 2040,” said Scott Wilken with the Maricopa Association of Governments.
Wilken is the data guru who looks at the numbers to make predictions about what the future holds.
And right now, Wilken says that equals one new person moving to the Valley every six minutes.
