Public Affairs

One of the DC Ranch Community Council’s responsibilities is to engage in public policy advocacy for the benefit of DC Ranch by identifying and monitoring matters that may positively or negatively impact the DC Ranch community-at-large. The Council’s goal is to be a positive and contributing member of the Scottsdale community in a way that enhances DC Ranch’s desirability while supporting the city’s vitality.

After the DC Ranch Community Council Board has evaluated a matter, including determining its impact on the community as well as gathering and considering relevant resident and stakeholder input, the Council Board may decide to take an official position on behalf of DC Ranch.

DC Ranch Council staff will proactively communicate and share this position and any related message with DC Ranch residents and businesses as well as any other agencies as appropriate.
