"I hate Queen Creek, AZ"


I hate Queen Creek, AZ - 2/10/2011

Lilly

I have now lived in Queen Creek, Arizona for 6 years now and I hate it. I wish I had never moved to Arizona. If you are a devout Mormon then you will love living in Queen Creek. They own the town. I had to pull my child out of the school here because it was so horrible. The hot summers are a nightmare! It doesn't matter that it's "dry" because once it hits 105 and over it's an OVEN. There is no relief from it. It is all mormons and lots of illegals of course. The housing market crashed here like no other place and now my home has lost so much value I can't even sell it if I wanted to. And I wish I could to move out of Queen Creek and at least to Chandler where there aren't as many wierd mormons hanging out! I would love to move completely out of Arizona but can't because of job market as my husband has a good job here. I can't wait until he can retire to get the hell out of here! Do yourself a favor and don't move to Arizona...especially if you have kids which made it worse for us as the schools are horrible! I have made a few good friends from Chandler and Tempe but it's not worth staying here for and I can't wait to leave one day.

So you are telling me the lds run the queen creek high schools? i don't look down on the lds, but when your kids are not allowed to hang out with my non lds child, then theres a problem, and whatever happen to the division between church and state. does it not concern anyone that az is breaking federal laws by allowing lds to offer classes with the schools. Are there any nice parts of the valley where we can relocate to and have good schools for our kids without having to deal with lds this and lds that. I mean seriously. I live in chicago, and we have churches everywhere, religon has never been a problem here. So when you make your lives and the people your religion states you can break bread with control your every move, it is a cult. where are there no lds in the valley....

I'm LDS and moving to Queen Creek in about 18 months when my husband finishes Chiropractic school... What's so bad about all the "Momrons"? I've never heard so much negitivity toward us, we're generally good natured people. Just curious. I'm mean this sincerely and with respect. We have been wondering if the Church there is humble and down to earth like we're used to, or if its more like it is in Utah (where you get a lot of people with high opinions of themselves who don't practice what they preach.) I'm also very curious why you wanted to take your kids out of school... because of the Mormons, or because the schools are bad? My children were homeschooled until this year and I've been pretty shocked by the stuff they're being exposed to by other kids at school. I was curious if you felt the same way. Thanks!

I love it! - 5/17/2011

I love Queen Creek!! We moved here almost a year ago from Portland, OR. I have to say it a completely different world!! We are in a lower middle class neighborhood (subdivision) and moved here sightunseen, we plan to move when our lease is up to something with a little higher price range and then next year we plan to buy a home in Queen Creek. I am currently a SAHM looking to go back to work and I think the commute is well worth the rural area of Queen Creek that we live in. It is pretty quiet, there is a little crime like pety theft but I don't worry much about my daughter playing outside. I like her school!! The class size is a little big but the buildings are new and able to accomadate a bigger class size. There are a lack of real restaurants out here but if you like fast food then its fine. lol. We did just get a Olive Garden and Dennys not long ago and I would assume other places like Applebees, Texas Roadhouse, Chili's isn't too far behind. I am getting used to the weather and it is hot but it really isn't too bad until it gets over 105. I have been looking for a job for a couple months now with no luck but I assume its because our country is still pulling out of this recession. But there are a lot of doctors offices, fast food places, grocery and retail stores, we just got a hospital, there are utility companies here and of course the city which are all potential places for employment if you have the experience. I really like it out here, this is home!! Out of any other place in the Phoenix area I think Queen Creek is truly the best, it is affordable for lower middle class and there are upper middle class homes as well for a great price!! Another small downside is you have to travel into Mesa, Chandler or Gilbert to go any mall or recreational things such as bowling, movies, but there is a lot to do!! Plus I assume its only a matter of time before we get more things out here to do as just 5 years ago there was literally nothing out here. There are other places such as Scottsdale and Gilbert but it is a more expensive.

Living in Queen Creek - 3/21/2010

I am thinking of moving to Queen Creek from Washington State, but I'm worried about the job market. How bad is it there and what fields are hiring? I currently am a Veterinary Asst but have worked in the the social service field most of my working career. I also have 2 dogs, a Pekingese and English Mastiff. How bad is the heat for these breeds that don't really do well in the heat anyway? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Queen Creek sucks - 9/29/2008

I moved to Queen Creek 3 years ago from a more "central" suburb of Phoenix. I only chose Queen Creek because there were no houses available anywhere else in the metro area. I have been miserable ever since. The property taxes are outrageous & keep going up. Those taxes don't provide for fire service, so the "for profit" fire service in the area bills us $450 a year just-in-case they might have to come to our house. The properties all have HOAs (unless you have the luxury of affording a horse property). HOAs SUCK. I am sick of driving an hour or more to do ANYTHING. There are no bars in the area (except a couple of backwards country bars). Only recently have a few shopping centers opened up. No mall. No good restaurants. No good bars. No culture. Just a sewer smell from raw sewage spilled into the wash near my house. Property values have fallen to unbelievable lows. More than half the houses on any given block are for sell, others are for rent or in foreclosure. People can't give houses away in Queen Creek, yet the builders are building more. If it rains, ALL the roads flood & you can't get into or out of Queen Creek without a canoe (mild exaggeration). Since property values are so low, all the scum has moved into the area. There is graffiti everywhere, murders in the street a few blocks from my hosue, vandalized homes & vehicles, kids playing in the streets, garbage in the streets...I could go on & on. I can't wait to give my house back to the bank & get the hell out! Don't move to Queen Creek unless you want to live someplace that sucks.

When will it stop?! - 5/8/2007

I have lived in Queen Creek for 2 years. When we first moved out here a quad was stolen right out of our backyard in the middle of the day. Just recently out house was broken into and everything of value was stolen as well as haveing a truck stolen and vandalized, not long after that (about a month) the truck was broken into again. For every incident we have completed a police report. The deputies always seem to care while they are at our house but we have never heard anything after the fact. There has to be leads on this stuff. We live on a busy road and someone had to have seen somthing suspicious in all of these instances. Something has to be done about the crime in this area. There is no way Queen Creek has a LOW crime rate if all of these events have happened to one family.

Queen Creek....... - 10/13/2006

I have lived in Queen Creek for a little over a year. I plan on moving within the next year. Queen Creek is a growing city close to Phoenix. I commute two hours every day to my job in downtown Phoenix. The climate is great, the summer can get a little hot but it is not any worse than the southeast. Illegal Immigration is a huge issue in these parts and is a little annoying. Queen Creek does not have much crime and can be a nice place to live if you can find a job close by. There are some people who still feel that this area is still "country" and they ride their four wheelers down the streets. There is also a lot of kids around here, many families.
