Arizona City (O'odham: Al Ṣon) is a census-designated place (CDP) in Pinal County, Arizona, United States. The population was 10,475 at the 2010 census. From time to time, most recently in 2007, attempts have been made to incorporate as a municipality, but they have so far always been defeated at the ballot box, except for the first effort in the early 1980s, which succeeded at the ballot box but was overturned in court because there were not enough residents at that time to incorporate.[1][2]
