The City of Page is a planned community near the Arizona/Utah border. Named for John C. Page, a 1930’s Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation, the City was planned and developed for the workers building the Glen Canyon Dam in 1957. At an elevation of 4,300 feet atop Manson Mesa and overlooking Wahweap Bay of Lake Powell, Page has become a major resort area. The City of Page was incorporated in March of 1975.

Though it began as a temporary camp for construction workers, Page has emerged as a self-sufficient and progressive city. Lake Powell, the Navajo Generating Station, and tourism are the major contributors to the economy.

Recreational properties and public utilities are the predominant employers on Page. While the recreation-oriented firms experience seasonal employment peaks from March through November, the Salt River Project’s Navajo Generating Station ensures the stability of Page. In 1994, the Salt River Project began a five-year $50 million scrubber project to assure air quality. The National Park Service estimates that the Page/Lake Powell area had 2.6 million visitors in 1999. Tourism and the distance to other trade centers have created a demand for a variety of consumer goods and services. Therefore, 70 percent of the employers and more than 50 percent of the total workforce are in the retail trade and service sectors.
