Background on Phoenix
Phoenix is the capital of Arizona and the most populated part of the entire state. As of 2017 there were almost 1.7 million people living in Phoenix making it the fifth most populated city in the nation. It is also the most populated United States capital. Phoenix is known as the “Valley of the Sun” due to its location in the Salt River Valley. It is also the anchor of the Phoenix Metro area. Phoenix is part of Maricopa County and is almost 518 square miles in size making it one of the largest cities in the United States. The city became incorporated on February 25th 1881. There are mountains around the city but besides that Phoenix is mostly flat land which allows for much wider roadways. One of the most interesting things about Phoenix is that daylight savings time is not observed here like it is in the rest of the United States. Governor Jack Williams was the man that made the argument to get rid of daylight savings time. The main reason being that he did not like the idea children having to go to school in the dark.
Areas of Phoenix
Phoenix is broken up into what is known as urban villages. This started back in 1979. Each village has its own planning committee that is appointed to them by the city council. Each village has something different to offer but the main goal within each village is to create a balance of employment and housing as well as promote the unique qualities that each village has to offer. The 15 villages are as follows. South Mountain, Paradise Valley, Deer Valley, Central City, Rio Vista, North Gateway, Encanto, North Mountain, Maryvale, Estrella, Ahwatukee Foothills, Camelback East, Alhambra, Desert View and Laveen. Besides these urban villages there are other areas of Phoenix such as Midtown, Uptown, Downtown, North Phoenix, West Phoenix, South Phoenix, Arcadia, Sunnyslope and finally the Biltmore Area. Each area in Phoenix offers something different and the real estate available in these areas varies.
Climate in Phoenix
The climate in Phoenix is a what is known as a hot desert climate. This city is known for its long, hot summers and very short and often times warm winters. This city also receives the most sunshine of any major city on Earth. It shouldn’t come as a shock that Phoenix experiences more than 100 days of temperatures that reach 100 degrees or more. The hottest times here are between May and October. Phoenix averages roughly 300 days of sunshine per year and does not receive a lot of rain fall. However, when the weather does take a dip down into the low 30’s (which is a rare occurrence) snow can fall here. It does not happen often, but it has happened a few times in the past.
