Del Webb’s first master-planned community for active adults, Sun City, was so successful, it led to the beginning a new community in 1978. Located in the desert two miles to the west of Sun City, Sun City West was born. At the time, that piece of raw desert land was not fit for raising anything but lizards, as many folks believed. John Meeker, then president of the Del Webb Development Company, had a different vision for the land. He saw a new, larger community with facilities unmatched elsewhere. In less than a quarter century the desert yielded to Meeker’s vision. By 1997, 31,000 people had come from the 50 states, Canada and other countries to make Sun City West their home. With construction completed in Sun City West, the Del Webb Corporation moved slightly further West again to open Sun City Grand.
