Town of Prescott Valley
Incorporated in 1978, Prescott Valley sits at 5,100 feet, occupying a spectacular valley between the Bradshaw and Mingus Mountain ranges in the high desert of central Arizona. Wide open spaces and clean mountain air envelop smart growth and a commitment to positive progress. Our family-oriented community boasts a lifestyle of cultural, recreational and educational activities, a low crime rate and superior public service. We offer comfortable neighborhoods with affordable housing and modern infrastructure, an abundance of community parks and more than 50 places of worship. Additionally, we are just ten minutes away from historic Prescott, the county seat. With all it has going for it, no wonder Prescott Valley is often ranked among the top places to live in America.
