"City of Farmington" confused with "Farmington MSA"

Farmington MSA

Did you know that "Farmington" is designated by the federal government as a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). This means our extended geographical area has a population exceeding 50,000. This extended area encompasses all of San Juan County, including the unincorporated areas, the others cities, and expansive far-reaching areas on the Navajo Nation. A positive benefit of this is we are on the national map for various forms of economic, commercial, and retail development. On the negative side, on occasion -- and in fact this week-- media outlets publish non-independently verified "facts" regarding the "Farmington" MSA. Typically these reports do not make it clear they are analyzing the entire MSA, leaving readers to assume it is limited to the City of Farmington. These media releases can give an incomplete or inaccurate picture of the quality of life enjoyed within the City of Farmington by our residents and visitors alike.
