The "Center" of Phoenix
Had a conversation recently with an official from another professional team in Phoenix and he told me something very interesting. For years, the "center" of the Valley was defined by Central Avenue. Similar population on either side of that line. Not anymore. with all of the growth in the western suburbs, the dividing line is moving west and in 10-15 years, the new "center" of Phoenix will be 63rd. Avenue. Wow! That's 4 miles from the Glendale Sports Complex and it certainly gives rise to a long term view that the Glendale location will only improve as the Valley's population continues to grow.
