Community Profile for El Mirage, Arizona  Credit: Arizona Commerce Authority

 

El Mirage, the “Gateway to the West Valley,” lies approximately 16 miles northwest of downtown Phoenix and borders Luke Air Force Base. Incorporated in 1951, El Mirage has transcended its modest agricultural beginnings to become a growing economy supporting several different industry sectors. El Mirage continues to develop its economic potential and has adopted an aggressive strategy to attract new commercial and industrial businesses to the city. The 1600-acre Usage Driven Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) designation located in the city’s commerce/industry park, Northern Parkway transportation corridor, and ongoing road expansions/improvements make El Mirage a great place to live, work, and play. Photo Credit: By Marine 69-71 (Own work) [CC BY-SA 4.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0)], via Wikimedia Commons

Construction, manufacturing, mining, the service sector, and agriculture are the primary employers in El Mirage. Local companies include a Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) vehicle distribution center for automobiles, a mining operation (Cemex), concrete pipe manufacturer (Hansen Pipe), and a new mineral extraction equipment fabricator (Dakota Fabricating). Other area employers include Luke Air Force Base, Wal-Mart, and Dysart Unified School District. The FTZ Commerce/Industry Park will have direct access to Loop 303 and U.S. Highway 60, connecting two major interstates (I-10 and I-17) and access to the Greater Phoenix Area via Grand Ave (US 60).

El Mirage celebrates Founders Day in March and hosts several other special events throughout the year. The city maintains two parks, Gateway and Bill Gentry Parks. The City broke ground for a new recreational facility with a swimming pool adjacent to Bill Gentry Park. The City is also near the 7,000 seat Sundome Center for the Performing Arts in nearby Sun City West which features top-rated entertainers. The 10,000- acre Lake Pleasant Regional Park to the north offers boating, fishing, swimming, water skiing, camping and picnicking.

A new City Hall is being planned and scheduled to break ground in early 2016. The City of El Mirage has a wide range of community facilities including a Senior Center, a library, three city parks, a skateboard facility, a splash pad, a dog park, ball fields, and a community garden. The city has new fire and police stations plus a new 28,000 square-foot recreational facility managed by the YMCA.
