City Manager - The City of Flagstaff, Arizona
Flagstaff is northern Arizona’s most appealing mountain community, renowned for its diversity, Native American culture, stunning scenery, and active lifestyle. Nestled at the base of the majestic San Francisco Peaks at an elevation of 6,900 feet, Flagstaff (pop. 72,000, 66 sq. mi.) is surrounded by the largest ponderosa pine forests on earth. Its picturesque snow-capped mountains, aspen groves, meadows, and prairies provide a welcome contrast from Arizona’s lower elevation desert landscapes.
