San Tan Valley residents express support for incorporation as city

By Jeremy Duda | Axios

A survey of San Tan Valley residents commissioned by a Pinal County supervisor may bode well for the latest effort to turn the unincorporated community on the far southeastern edge of the Valley into Arizona’s newest city.

Driving the news: survey distributed to residents via mail, social media and community centers in December and January showed 46% supported incorporating the city, compared to just 17% who wanted San Tan Valley’s current governance system to stay the same.

  • 18% wanted to see the community annexed by another city, 10% preferred to create a taxing district for fire services, and 1% supported a taxing district for parks.
  • The survey was distributed by the office of Supervisor Mike Goodman, who represents San Tan Valley and is a supporter of incorporation.
  • 2,700 residents responded.

Why it matters: Incorporated municipalities have taxing authority, can provide public services and provide decision-making that’s closer to the people they serve. They’re also entitled to a portion of shared tax revenue and transportation dollars.
