Located about an hour to the northwest of downtown Phoenix is one of Arizona’s premier retirement communities – Sun City West – which quiet literally has something to offer every walk of life!

After the tremendous success of the first master-planned community for active adults, Sun City, the Del Webb Corporation began a second project in 1978. By 1997, Sun City West had attracted 31,000 residents from 50 states, Canada and other countries. 

Sun City West is actually an unincorporated community and does not have the same city government structure as other metro cities do. Although Maricopa County provides the street maintenance, building and zoning codes, law enforcement and public health safety the other community affairs are managed by two organizations known as The Recreation Centers of Sun City West and The Property Owners and Residents Association. Together, these two groups of elected volunteers maintain the renowned reputation that Sun City West has built over the past 30+ years.
