INTRODUCTION Welcome to the City of Phoenix! A state capital, Phoenix is the fifth largest city and one of the fastest growing cities in the southwestern United States. Named after the mythological bird, Phoenix rose from the ashes of an ancient civilization when the U.S military began re-establishing the area in 1865. Since its incorporation in 1881 as an agricultural community founded near irrigation farm land, Phoenix has grown into a dynamic business, tourism, and retirement center.
Phoenix is a four-time All American City and in 1993 won the Bertelsmann prize for the "The Best Run City in the World." The City of Phoenix values entrepreneurship, creativity, cooperation, and teamwork. For additional information on the City of Phoenix, visit the web page at www.phoenix.gov
