Mesa Population Will Soon Pass Tucson
« on: April 03, 2023, 03:56:35 am »
In 2021, the population of Mesa, AZ was 510,000.  Tucson population was 543,000.  Mesa has been exploding for years and continues to do so. 

They continue to build all over the place.

Mesa will soon pass Tucson as AZ's 2nd largest city.  The next cities in line are Scottsdale, Gilbert, and Chandler, each at a quarter million.

Like other cities, the city council has not changed.  Mesa has 6 council members.  In Lenexa, Kansas where I used to live...they had eight council members for 50,000 people. 

While I don't like it, I am just learning about the organizations in our area.

Mesa is really two cities.  The older section and the section to the east (where more of the money is).  Seems like we should have some "sub councils".

Even Mesa elects blue legislators. 

What is going on with the AZ GOP ?

Have not seen projections on when Mesa will pass Tucson.

Tucson has been growing...but not like Tucson.

In 1980, Tucson was over 300K.  Mesa was at 152. 

Won't be long.

Mesa has more land available.

I am curious what is the face of this new growth.

Me too.  It used to be Mormons coming in.
