ASU coming to Lake Havasu City

Lake Havasu City is one step closing to getting a major 4 year university to town. For months the Foundation for Higher education and the City of Lake Havasu have been working hard to bring a 4 year university to town. Now Arizona State University has jumped on the opportunity to occupy the old Daytona Middle School and turn it in to a satellite campus here in Mohave County. This is big news for the Lake Havasu City and presents great opportunities.  Now about $2 million needs to be raised at the private level in order to see this dream take place. Read the press releases below for more info.

Patriot Days in Lake Havasu City

Lake Havasu City, AZ was recently dubbed “The Most Patriotic City in the US”.

In celebration of this, Lake Havasu and Kingman have come together to put on 10 days of Patrotic events. This will be wonderful to honor our vets, active, retired and those that we have lost in their service to protect our country.

Be proud to be and American and a part of Lake Havasu City. This is the first year this event is taking place and should be a lot of fun. For more info check out the website at:

Is there crime in your neighborhood?

The Lake Havasu City police department is now linked into a few online crime tracking systems. I went to and checked out these links which allow you to type in a city’s name and see what calls the local police department is responding to and where they are on a map. Pretty cool!

This can be a great tool for home buyers to search and  see how much police activity is going on in a particular neighborhood. You can also sign up to receive instant text message alerts when a crime is being responded to in your neighborhood. This is a great for local and out of town residents who want to stay informed no matter where they are. The goal of programs like these is to keep citizens aware of what is going on around them and to encourage others to keep an eye in their neighborhoods, hoping to reduce the amount of crime.
