I am a long-time supporter of the Desert Discovery Center concept – which is now called the Desert EDGE. After attending two of the public presentations several days ago, I can truly say the project exceeds my expectations.
I believe that Desert EDGE will be an incredible amenity to our city and our McDowell Sonoran Preserve.
I am an advocate of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. I was the chair of the first McDowell Mountain Task Force, served two terms on the McDowell Sonoran Preserve Commission and participated in all five “Save Our McDowells” campaigns to educate voters about the value of the Mountain Preserve to our community.
