Population, opportunities growing

NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently conducted a study that placed Marana 16th among the fastest-growing cities and towns in Arizona. The study included 56 cities, towns and census-designated places and examined three variables:

  • Population growth
  • Employment growth
  • Income growth

Marana makes the list with an impressive 18.1 percent increase in employment from 2009 to 2012, placing Marana 12th in the study in that category. The Town has approximately 40,000 residents, up sharply from the 34,961 listed in the 2010 Census.

“The Town of Marana is committed to fostering an excellent quality of life for everyone who lives or does business here,” said Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. “We are proud of our community and value our residents and business owners.”

The full study is an interesting read. It makes us even happier to live and work in Marana.
