Community Introduction

Incorporated in 1956, Sierra Vista is located in Cochise County, about 20 miles from Mexico and 75 miles south of Tucson. It is the main commercial, cultural and recreational hub of the area. At an elevation of 4,623 feet, Sierra Vista’s abundant sunshine and clean air combine to make this city a comfortable and pleasant place to live.

The population of Sierra Vista is well traveled, educated and highly skilled. It has a vibrant business community and it’s a place where local residents enjoy a year-round moderate climate against a backdrop of breathtaking scenery and stunning sunsets.

The city stands as the economic heart of Southeast Arizona. A unique blend of business and industry is discovered here, with the major military intelligence and communications center, Fort Huachuca, leading the economy as the region’s largest employer.

Fort Huachuca (pronounced waa-choo-ka, an Indian word for “Thunder Mountain”) has been a part of the area since 1877 and is well known as the former home base of the famed Buffalo Soldiers 10th Cavalry Regiment. Today, the active Fort is a designated National Historic Landmark and houses two museums and an annex, which proudly tells the story of the U.S. Army in our nation’s southwest region.
