DESERT HILLS – At its January 22, meeting the New River Desert Hills Community Association (NRDHCA) announced the formation of the Daisy Mountain Area Action Alliance along with several other new committees designed to address issues that threaten the unique life style of the rural area.
The Daisy Mountain Area Action Alliance (DMAAA) was formed with the intent of bringing together residents from New River, Desert Hills and Anthem, so it can take a leadership role in protecting and preserving the area, according to press release from NRDHCA last week.
“The DMAAA brings our communities together to work with Maricopa County, the state and others to promote responsible growth, keeping top of mind our limited natural resources and preservation of the varied lifestyles offered in the Daisy Mountain foothills,” NRDHCA’s press release stated.
NRDHCA also formed communications, community resources, fire district liaison, grants, Anthem Community Council liaison, Anthem Chamber of Commerce liaison and transportation committees.
Volunteers are still needed for the new committees for anyone who would like to support the organization and its efforts.
The DMAAA also has several members from the Tramonto community participating in its efforts to protect and preserve the scenic, rural area from the rapid encroaching urban sprawl.
“The NRDHCA is dedicated to the preservation of our community and its rural life-style through being informed and providing broad input to a wide array of county, state and federal agencies and elected officials,” NRDHCA stated about the formation of the alliance. “We invite all members of the community to join our association, attend our meetings and be involved in decisions that shape our community’s future.”
