Town of Guadalupe
Where Three Cultures Flourish

Community Overview

Guadalupe is a Native American and Hispanic community of about 5,500 residents between Phoenix and Tempe at the base of South Mountain.

The town proudly maintains a strong cultural and ethnic identity. It is named after the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico.

Guadalupe was founded by Yaqui Indians around the turn of the century. The town of Guadalupe was incorporated in 1975 and is approximately one square mile in area. It will remain this size since it is surrounded by man-made boundaries; Interstate 10 and the city of Phoenix on the west; Baseline Road and the city of Tempe on the North; the city of Tempe on the South; and by the Salt River Project's Highline Canal on the East.

The town of Guadalupe has a council-manager form of government.   

2015 Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan - Draft

The Town of Guadalupe has joined forces with Maricopa County and other jurisdictions around the Valley to review and update the existing multi-hazard mitigation plans and consolidate them into one multi-jurisdictional, multi-hazard mitigation plan.  A final draft of the 2015 Maricopa County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan (PLAN) is now available for review and comment.

The goal of this mitigation planning effort is to reduce or eliminate long-term risk to life and property from natural hazard events.  Mitigation is not how we respond to emergencies like floods and wildfires, but rather how we as a community might lessen or even prevent the impact of such things in the first place.

The mitigation planning process involved identifying and profiling the natural hazards most likely to occur in a community, assessing the vulnerability to these hazards, and establishing goals, actions, and projects that mitigate the associated risks.  The update of this mitigation PLAN will also ensure the community’s continued eligibility for non-emergency, federal hazard mitigation grants.

Residents are highly encouraged to review the updated PLAN and offer comments.  For more information, please visit the multi-jurisdictional planning website at:
