Here Are The 10 Fastest-Growing Towns In Arizona And Why
Earlier this year, the U.S. Census Bureau released figures that show Arizona is one popular state. The entire state saw a increase of 1.7% in its total population in 2016 with urban areas becoming denser and even our little towns experiencing some degree of growth. Not all Arizonans are happy about population growth but at least we’re not seeing our population numbers plummet!
Let’s take a look at some of the towns—which we’re defining as places with a population under 15,000—that have experienced the most growth last year.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
