It’s official.  The residents of the unincorporated area of Queen Creek are now residents of “San Tan Valley“. 

In an article written by The Arizona Republic’s, Dustin Gardiner, about 2,000 Queen Creek residents (approx. 18%) came out to vote on the community’s new name. 

Gardiner’s article goes on to say:

The community, north of the Santan Mountains in Pinal County, is home to roughly 80,000 residents, most of who moved to the area within the past 10 years. It is not part of the nearby town of Queen Creek, but that became the area’s affiliation after the U.S. Postal Service in Queen Creek began using it for practical purposes. 
…In the short term, the vote will change little other than residents’ mailing addresses, but community leaders and residents insist the move was about alot more than that.

Here’s a list of the 70 communities involved:

Bonanza Ranch
Goldmine Equestrian
San Tan Heights

  1. Yes,
    The people had no notice that this was going to happen. A few people knew about it. But this is Pinal County, home of the corrupt Government like recently let go Sandy Smith. Just look at the giant tubes holding the lights over Ocotillo/Ironwwod and Combs/Ironwood. LOL. What a joke. They said it interfered with powerlines to have the smaller more normal ones? Wow! But they proved them wrong when Sandy Smith was gone they installed normal ones 100 feet down at the new shopping center. Thanks for lies to the people, and for continuing to scw. us over on things important to our community.

  2. There are many of us who did not get any notice to vote on a name change. I am very disappointed. The name San Tan Valley does not flow at all. Obviously with the amount of people who voted.. No one knew it was going on. All I knew was our zip code was getting changed again and that’s because we got a notice in the mail. I think it is sad that alot of us did not get a vote.

    Thanks for your time,

    Tanya Olsen
