The August 12th  Community Meeting will be our Candidates’ Forum that will be held at the Desert Mountain School, 35959 N 7th Ave, Desert Hills (north of Carefree Hwy and just South of Cloud).  This is a combined effort between NR/DHCA and Anthem Community Council for the public to attend.  This may be the last event in our area to help you get to know the candidates that will be present this year.  This meeting has an early start time of 7:00 PM and will run until 9:00 PM.  Please be prompt and bring friends and neighbors.

Our Friday, August 8th Town Hall with Area Government Speaker starts at 9 AM at the Anthem Civic Building, 3701 Anthem Way, Anthem 85086. NRDHCA, the meeting sponsor, has planned these meetings for the 2nd Friday of each month throughout the year. We usually have speakers from the State, County and City of Phoenix. We thank the Anthem Community Council for arranging the Civic Building room for the entire year of 2014. You will find an announcement on our website, newsletter and other local newspaper/media on a monthly basis prior to each meeting. NR/DHCA goal is to encourage government transparency and community participation. 

BONUS MEETING - At 10 AM, following the August 8th Town Hall meeting and  in the same room, NR-DHCA is hosting ADOT who will present the latest updates on the New River Rd and I-17 intersection.  This impacts Anthem, New River, Desert Hills and those exiting/entering I-17 at New River; come hear about the improvements.
