Today, Apple Valley homes number about 300, with approximately 10 new residences being added each year. Several subdivisions are in the planning stages, just waiting for approval.
Apple Valley real estate offers residents plenty of space, with lots zoned for 1 acre and the ability to keep horses.

Apple Valley History
Apple Valley was officially incorporated in the year 2004, but the community dates back to 1986. Initially, Apple Valley was just a couple of subdivisions, and would continue to grow slowly over the next decade. Things began to take off when the area started its fundraiser for their own fire department in 1993. This fundraiser started the area's annual tradition of hosting the Apple Valley Fair, initially held in Paradise Canyon.
Over the course of the community's short history, some residents have held the viewpoint that Apple Valley should be disincorporated. This was a topic voted upon on two separate occasions, however neither attempt reached the required amount of signatures.
