Mesquite takes pride in promoting a clean, safe, & beautiful city, providing excellent service for residents & visitors
Since incorporation Mesquite has experienced rapid growth, at one time being named “The fastest growing city in America” for it’s size. The population stands at over 17,000 . With this growth has come an increase of businesses and services never before enjoyed by residents of the area. A new hospital, medical and dental clinics brought care that had only been possible by traveling outside the valley. Stores, restaurants, movie theaters, art galleries, golf courses, hotels and casinos are providing employment and services for the life style that has become a trademark of Mesquite.
The construction of a new high school, a new middle school and two new elementary schools reflect the increase of young families in the population. Housing developments are creating beautiful neighborhoods for residents of all ages. Access to newly opened land west of Mesquite has been made possible by the addition of a new I-15 interchange encouraging the construction of new light industry. Mesquite has long been a stop on a busy western highway but now it is a destination!
