El Mirage is the gateway to the Northwest Valley. Located in the heart of the rapidly growing West Valley, our community has grown from a small town to a diverse urban economy. Our city is just minutes away from several professional sports venues, some of the best golf courses in the Valley, and high-end retail outlets.
More than 40,000 people now call El Mirage home, a testament to their belief in our community and an increase of nearly 400 percent from five years ago. In fact, we're the fastest growing community in Arizona.
Whether you are looking for your first home or a million dollar estate on an acre lot, El Mirage has it all. Lawyers, doctors, teachers and nurses all call El Mirage home. And we're home to a nationally recognized retirement community, the Pueblo El Mirage Golf Resort.
We have a well-deserved reputation as a modern, business-driven suburb northwest of Phoenix with the ability to attract new residents and companies in a brisk, competitive economic development environment. Over the last several years our goal has been to create a community that provides our residents the opportunity to purchase any goods or services without having to leave our city limits.
We're also keeping our city on the forefront of growth. Strategic planning for the future is constantly underway. The City is committed to aggressively improving infrastructure and public safety to keep up with growth, in order to provide the best services and programs to residents and businesses.
