We're thinking about moving to the Phoenix, AZ area

Can anyone tell me about the charter schools there, the arts community, if it's hippie dippie, eco-friendly, if people recycle and compost, if you can have chickens in city limits? What does milk cost? Is gas expensive?

Basically, I want the pros and cons of the greater Phoenix area.

Background on us: slightly crunchy, Liberal, Lutheran, eco-healthier than most. We would be moving from the Pacific NW (which we do love) so give me the truth!

Thanks!

  • I'm not normally a hot weather person, but I'm wondering if the dry heat would be good for my hideous allergies? I have a severe mold allergy--along with asthma--so perhaps the dry heat would do me some good??? Plus, having my own pool would rock.
