Welcome to the
of Northern Arizona!
In Flagstaff, the next great idea may strike on a hike near the San Francisco Peaks. The next ground-breaking discovery may be inspired by the golden glory of our aspen trees in the fall. And the seeds for our foremost achievements may be planted by the sun that beams down upon our pristine mountain community year-round.
Our region’s rural splendor has been inspiring breakthroughs in science and technology for more than 100 years. It was here on the mountaintop that scientists discovered Pluto, explored Mars and the Moon, and made inroads to pathogen genomics and other breakthroughs in bioscience that put our city on the map as a hub for innovation.
We empower our citizens to leave their mark on the world as they see if from 7,000 feet, and then support them every step along the way. That’s what we call Inspired Innovation at a Higher Elevation, and it’s how we work together as a community to improve lives around the globe – now, here, today.
