A project as controversial as Arizona Eco Development's proposed 2,500-home subdivision was sure to gain media attention. Save the Dells ensured that the attention given to their plan was balanced with the reality that the public doesn't support this major buildout.

 

These stories in the local press tell the tale of a citizenry speaking up on an issue of unprecedented regional significance-- and you'll notice that over time, Save the Dells and our broad base of community supporters have continued to use our voices for an expanding number of important community issues beyond the annexation.

our perspective

Leaders in the Save the Dells committee have not been shy about establishing our objectives and offering our justifications for taking the positions we have. "Talk of the Town" Columns in the Daily Courier offer readers a chance to understand why we want to save the Dells, and how we believe we can achieve the "win-win" solution.
