Wondering how to edit this U.S. City Entry?
The WikiProject U.S. Cities standards might help.

City of Maricopa, Arizona The entry citing the following is wrong:

They are currently planning a comprehensive trail system that will be approximately 40 miles in length, connecting multiple communities throughout the city.

The cite for this information is "The Maricopa Trail". First of all the City of Maricopa is only a couple miles square. More important, the Maricopa Trail is being proposed for the Greater Phoenix metropolitan area, which is in Maricopa County, Arizona, and tens of miles to the north. The City of Maricopa is located in Pinal County, and no such trail is associated with this City. This is a factual error that needs to be removed from the page on the City of Maricopa. You could place with with Maricopa County, if you like. You may check this assertion by clicking on the link to "The Maricopa Trail". There you will see the Phoenix metropolitan area, including the cities of Phoenix, Chandler, Tempe, Mesa, Glendale, etc.

Thank you. This is a great enterprise, and it is important for its credibility that it be as accurate and reliable as possible. 00:03, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

New York Times article[edit]

There's an interesting New York Times article about Maricopa. Perhaps information from it could be incorporated into the article. john k (talk) 20:47, 6 April 2008 (UTC)

Phoenix Metropolitan Area[edit]

This article says it is part of the Phoenix Metropolitan Area, however, the article on the Phoenix Metropolitan Area explicitly excludes it. One of these is wrong. I would generally think to include it since many of their citizens commute to Phoenix daily. Autkm (talk) 01:13, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
