I would recommend the west side of the valley. It is really booming. If you move to the west side of the valley I would recommend Buckeye, Avondale, Goodyear, Glendale. I currently live in Laveen. It's a great location if you need to commute to the west or east side of the valley.

Default Morenci

Well they only place to work in Morenci is for Phelps Dodege mine...as far as a place to live, if you've never been to Morenci, it is a pretty ugly old rundown minning town and you would be better off living in Safford/Thatcher...I have several friends who drive up to Morenci everyday to work...good luck

Question Shopping

I moved to Duncan, AZ (york valley the town of duncan is 20 miles away from where I am) in October from the Benicia, CA, northern cali.. I tried to take my teenage daughter of 15 shopping for new clothes, and could not find anything. Does everyone do their shopping at Walmart in Safford, or do they have to drive almost 3 hours to buy a blouse and a pair of pants. I am clueless to where anything is Please can someone give me some ideas please.
Thanx

Default Clifton/Morenci

There are tons of jobs in the Clifton/Morenci area! EVERYBODY is looking for help; not just the mine. The real problem is housing. But, Phelps Dodge, the mining company is trying to fix this problem. There is also a new housing development scheduled to be finished sometime this year in Clifton. Well, I should say on the mountaintop overlooking Clifton.

Why are you moving to Morenci? My son lived over there for awhile and worked at Phelps Dodge. If you can get in over at Phelps Dodge you can make good money. My son didn't last though, he couldn't stand the job or Morenci.

How long have you lived in that area?

LOL, I am sorry but I have to laugh. I am a native Arizonan and lived in the area for a good part of my life. First Morenci and Clifton are dumps. Nasty and dirty. You won't find housing, there is none. Child care is non existent as well. Besides a bar, a dirt boweling alley and a tiny grocery store selling rotten fruit your not going to find much else up there. You'll find that the mine will boom for a short time, get in trouble with the gov for polluting again and close down in about 5 years, it happened in the early 80's and is bound to happen again.
