Response to New River-Desert Hills Incorporation Map

NRDH Incorporation MapThe preliminary incorporation map* recently released by the New River-Desert Hills Incorporation Committee (and published by local publication North Phoenix News) includes Anthem commercial properties located near Daisy Mountain Drive and Gavilan Peak Parkway, as well as a portion of open space owned by the Anthem Community Council (ACC) south of Daisy Mountain Drive. 

The ACC strongly opposes the inclusion of any Anthem properties in the preliminary incorporation boundaries and we have conveyed our opposition to the Incorporation Committee. The ACC respects the rights of our neighbors in New River and Desert Hills to explore incorporation and to ultimately incorporate, if that is the will of the residents. In turn, we ask the Incorporation Committee to respect Anthem’s master plan boundaries and the solidarity of the Anthem community, and to remove all Anthem properties from the preliminary incorporation map.

The Incorporation Committee will host an informational meeting from 5–8 p.m. on Wednesday, August 29 at Desert View Bible Church, 105 W. Carefree Highway. ACC representatives will be in attendance.
