El Mirage, AZ
Since its incorporation in 1951, El Mirage has transcended its rural, agricultural beginnings to emerge as a diverse suburban community of more than 32,000 residents currently. The City’s affordable housing, small town feel, and proximity to Phoenix have attracted young working families seeking their first homes, retirees looking for community cohesion and a less hurried pace, and entrepreneurs seeking expansion into new markets.
El Mirage is minutes away from Luke Air Force Base, the USAF’s largest fighter pilot training facility in the world. U.S. Highway 60 (Grand Avenue) and a BNSF rail line border the City’s northern edge.
