Buckeye will have over 250,000 homes built within 15 years and a population of over 500,000 in 15 years,so each year that once small town will grow tremendously in population....i truly believe that Buckeye may become the fastest growing area of the country sooner or later....
Buckeye's not temporary, the town was actually incorporated in the late 1800's, like most similar towns in Arizona. It's just that it - along with most of the remainder of Phoenix's 'West Valley' - didn't finally experience any of the area's huge population boom until just within the past decade or so.

I think you may be thinking about the giant, mega, mondo, master-planned community (er, city rather) called Verrado that's currently being built in Buckeye? Verrado, when finished, will literally be a city-within-a-city with tens of thousands of new homes, and residents.

Insanity, I tell ya.

Yup,Verrado will be huge,it will probably be sorta like Summerlin in Las Vegas.

Those pictures of The Oro Valley were beautiful...i've always loved the appearances of neighborhoods with views of Mountains and Hills...

I could never find myself living anywhere where i can't see any mountains.

I went to Tucson several years ago and was impressed with the desert landscape. Nearby Sabino Canyon was a great place for a hike.

So I know there were some setbacks for the Rio Nuevo project but I read things were starting picking up speed recently. Doesn't anyone know if there are any plans to build the "Rainbow bridge" that was proposed many years ago? I remember the renderings were impressive.
