The growing city, which covers an area of approximately 200 square miles, has won several recent awards including the prestigious All-America City award given by the National Civic League.
To sum it up, Goodyear features a blend of metropolitan amenities packaged with warm and friendly suburban hospitality, a sentiment reflected in the fact that, according to the Citizen Satisfaction Survey, over 90 percent of Goodyear residents feel that it is both a safe and excellent place to live.
