A complete project proposal for the Desert Discovery Center Concept is online.

The project consultant team submitted its report on July 31. Public meetings  on the proposal begin this week.

The proposed DDC concept will be available for community review at a series of meetings in August and September, culminating with a City Council Study Session in late September.

A schedule of upcoming milestones and meetings can be found below. Links to meeting agendas and presentation materials will be available for each meeting on the project website as they become available.

Meeting dates, times and locations are subject to change as the project moves though the hearing process. The the most up-to-date information will be posted on the project webpage.

Tentative schedule:
