The city of Phoenix became one of the first cities in the country to introduce some form of council administration. The bill that made Phoenix a community-owned city provided for a government of one mayor and four council members.

This was an auspicious step in the state’s history, but the following year the city of Phoenix took an even more important step. In a special election on 11 October 1913, the Phoenix people voted by two to one to ratify the new charter.

The Center of Transit in America

Maricopa began near the southern bank of the Gila River as a haven for the thousands of immigrants who followed the Southern Trail from Arizona and California Goldfields in the 1800s. The water wells began as an oasis and a series of water holes eight miles south of town, about a mile west of Pima Butte.

In the meantime, Maricopa became a transit point for several stagecoach and rail lines. Stagecoaches were the first semi-public transportation option in Arizona and at their relay stations, three stagecoach lines traveled through the city. At one point, residents of Maricopa were busy on all three lines.

The railroads of Santa Fe, Prescott, and Phoenix accelerated the rise of the capital cities to economic supremacy in the state. The Maricopa and Phoenix railroads revolutionized Arizona’s economy as goods traveled by rail and wagon through the Phoenix area and local produce reached markets in the east and west. In the 1870s, Maricopa’s fountains served as a commercial hub not only for East and West travelers, but also for those traveling north to Phoenix.

Maricopa is the only city in the nation that borders on two Native American communities and continues to honor and celebrate the same cultural diversity as its birthplace embracing American ingenuity and pioneer spirit that has been an integral part of the city for centuries. Maricopa may be a small town, but it’s also one of the fastest growing in the United States. As of 2020, it will be Arizona’s second largest city with a population of 56,325 and the 698 largest city in America.

The Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway forms an important corridor through the city of Maricopa that connects the city with the city of Casa Grande. The city is also a stop for the Phoenix Amtrak Sunset Limited and Texas Eagle Line.

Arizona State Route 347 is a north-south highway that connects Interstate 10 to Maricopa for 14 miles. This highway originally ran from Maricopa through the Gila River Indian Community to the north and AK-Chin Indian Community to the south and was later renamed Maricopa Road.

Arizona State Route 238 connects Maricopa with the city of Mobile, which was incorporated as Goodyear City, although the term Mobile is still used. In Mobile, the route becomes a county road connecting Gila Bend with Arizona State Route 85. The route ends at State Route 347, which runs further east on Smith-Enke Road, a major east-west corridor in Maricopa City.
