Looking for input from locals, I've got an idea of where I'm going to look, but I thought I'd get a little more input first. So the question is-If you had a good job in Tolleson, and a family to care for, where would YOU live?

Goodyear, perhaps, or up the road in Peoria (the newer part).

I would check out the school district and crime stats for all the west valley cities. I probably would stay away from South Phx and Laveen (jmho). Also NW Phx metro area is nice and new but way far up in the NW valley may be too much of a drive.... If I had small kids to teenagers I would buy into the best school district with the lowest crime. Even if I sent my kids to a private school, I would still buy into the best school district. Good luck with your new job!

No, there is actually a real (small) town called Litchfield Park. I don't remember exactly the street coordinates for Palm Valley (which is a subdivision/development, not a town), as I have not been out in that area for a long time, but Litchfield is essentially centered around Litchfield Road and Indian School.
