IT'S NOW OR NEVER

SAVE THE DELLS

save the dells is grassroots organization that...

first and foremost, aims to permanently preserve the remaining undeveloped portions of the Granite Dells (the Dells) as part of a publicly accessible Granite Dells Regional Park.

Beyond this primary conservation goal, Save the Dells also supports furthering the conversation on important community issues like sustainable water management, regional collaboration, and quality of life. We hope to inspire and enable everyone to advocate for the future they hope to build for their communities, in the Quad-City area and beyond!

The threats

Prescott is enduring its most dramatic growth ever. 

 

With new developments approved and in construction, urban sprawl is creeping ever closer to one of Arizona's most spectacular wonders-- the Granite Dells.

Our solution

The primary conservation goal is to permanently preserve the remaining undeveloped portions of the Granite Dells (the Dells) as part of a publicly accessible Granite Dells Regional Park.

 

This path reflects the majority wishes of the Prescott community and the stated objectives of Prescott’s General Plan and Open Space Master Plan.

On July 13th, 2021 the city council voted 7-0 to approve the amended Development Agreement, ensuring that 473.7 acres of the original 500 proposed Granite Dells acres would be transferred into public ownership as natural open space...
