Arizona nonprofit corporations, Protect Our Preserve and NoDDC, Inc., have joined together to sue the city of Scottsdale to enforce the rights of voters guaranteed under the City Charter, in regards to the much-discussed Desert EDGE proposal.

The McDowell Sonoran Conservancy also released a statement on Sept. 26, outlining a number of reasons the Conservancy doesn’t support the proposal.
