About City of Casa Grande
Casa Grande is located in Central Arizona, about halfway between Phoenix and Tucson, at the junction of Interstates 10 and 8. Our population is about 54,000, but we are a trade and employment center for a much larger area population. Many factors, including our location, have resulted in solid, balanced growth over the past 20 years, with a good mix of residential, industrial and retail development. In spite of our growth, Casa Grande still offers the advantages of a rural lifestyle and yet our proximity to the Phoenix metropolitan area gives us access to big-city amenities. Housing is affordable and the general quality of life here is outstanding.
