Maryvale Revitalization Corporation (MRC), a 501c3 nonprofit, was founded by community leaders in January 2005 with an original focus on the physical revitalization of the community. Thanks to the dedication and passion of its volunteer board of directions, staff and community stakeholders, MRC has been the regional leader serving as the collective voice and vision of the Maryvale village.
Today MRC is stronger and more robust than ever. Serving as the motivating catalyst for the economic, social and physical renaissance in Maryvale, MRC is the collaborative central agency that supports and amplifies the work of local non-profits, faith-based communities, government initiatives, schools and local businesses serving West Phoenix.
Life is good in Maryvale. And it can get even better.
In one word, Maryvale means OPPORTUNITY.
The largest of Phoenix’s 15 villages, Maryvale holds 5% of Arizona’s population in its 37 square miles. It would be the 4th largest city in Arizona if it stood on its own.
Maryvale is the youngest community in Arizona, with 41% of population under 19 years old. The median resident age is 26 years old and 94% of all residents are working age (under 60).
There is space for everyone in Maryvale. From commercial to residential development, there are existing real estate opportunities with plenty of room to grow.
This means Maryvale is home to Arizona’s current and future leaders and workforce.
Quality and innovative education, clear pathways to workforce development, and retail and commercial opportunities are the keys to Maryvale’s and Arizona’s economic prosperity.
