  • Sonoran Valley - 95 square miles south of Goodyear in the Mobile area.
  • 2,363 acres of land generally between Chandler Heights Rd. and Patterson Rd.
  • 867 acres in three parcels: 78 acres at the northeast corner of Chandler Heights Rd. and Sandia Rd.; 554 acres east of Rainbow Valley Rd.; and 235 acres at the northwest corner of 155th Ave. and Riggs Rd.
