Queen Creek, Arizona uniquely crosses over county lines in the Southeast Valley with the majority of the town in Maricopa County while a small portion of the 26 mile town referred to as San Tan Valley is in Pinal County.
Nearly 20% of the town, surrounded by the San Tan, Goldmine, and Superstition Mountains - is dedicated to commercial or industrial uses giving the town a definite agricultural feel.
Queen Creek has experienced an explosion in population since its incorporation in 1989 with more than 31,000 residents living in a small town atmosphere just 45 minutes from Sky Harbor International Airport and a short 10 minutes away from Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
Queen Creek has become a new-build mecca with several local and national builders including Taylor Morrison, Ryland Homes, and Mattamy snatching up land to build homes in a variety of different floor plans and price ranges. Condos, townhouses, zero lot line homes, horse property, and luxury subdivisions are just a few of the options that potential homeowners have when selecting a home in Queen Creek.
Balancing the population growth with the resident’s desire to keep the intimate feel of the community has challenged the town leaders to get creative with their economic development plans and their annual celebratory activities. Most cultural attractions including the American Heritage Festival, the Schnepf Farms holiday festivals, and the Queen Creek Olive Mill featured on the Food Network – do double duty to unite the community in celebration while educating visitors on the history of the town and their vision for the future.
