For 150 years, Maricopa County and its residents have thrived in a way few imagined possible. A world-class metropolis, in the heart of the desert, indebted to the Hohokam whose canals gave us accessible water and farmable land; to the Maricopa whose culture helped define us; and to the settlers of the late 1800’s, who set up the institutions that still exist to this day.
The nation's fastest-growing county
Today, Maricopa County is the beating heart of the wild west all grown up and dressed for dinner. It is a land of opportunity where people from all over the world come to recalibrate. To clear their minds, stretch their legs, and reconnect to possibilities drowned out by car horns and cold weather.
We are the government of the nation’s fastest-growing county and we believe in service that helps you solve a problem, move forward with a project, manage a difficult situation, or simply check something off your list. We manage water, rethink transportation, clean up the air, and find community-wide solutions to bring about safe, healthy lives for all. We value community, culture, and hard work. We don’t just care about you. We care about your kids. And your kids’ kids. And your kids’ kids’ kids.
And in times of crisis and controversy, as we’ve seen over the past year, we work tirelessly to connect you to the information and services that save lives, support families, and strengthen democracy. View a few of our program highlights as of Jan. 27, 2021:
