Happy New Year, Maricopa. See the January InMaricopa magazine

We plan the future by evaluating the past, looking back to look forward. Newborns are fresh-faced symbols of the hopes wrapped up in a new year, and they come with their challenges. Maricopans who became parents in 2017 want to share their experience – and offer some warnings – to those expecting in 2018. Not surprisingly, the city’s proximity to a hospital was a hot topic.

We count down the biggest stories of 2017, determined by our readership, in public safety, economic development and the community in general. While Maricopans gravitated toward crashes and crimes, they also had their eye on stories that will continue into 2018, such as transportation improvements and the construction of Edison Pointe.

Also in this month’s issue, meet the teacher who received a great gift from the Fiesta Bowl, and the student who gave a great gift by saving a life. See what interior colors are trending in Maricopa homes. Learn why a local CPA considers school tax credits a no-brainer.

Find out what’s going on with the business development proposed around Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and the hopes for a senior center somewhere in Maricopa sometime in the future. Read what some of your neighbors want to see in Maricopa in 2018 on our Faces in the Crowd page.

Check out some of the activities coming up in January, such as Family Fishing Day and the Senior Info/Expo. And get ready to plant those tomatoes!

These stories and much more are in the January issue of InMaricopa.

Have a fantastic 2018.
