ADOBE was created in 1989 to oversee and implement the orderly growth of the Gold Canyon area. ADOBE gathers and disseminates information and data to the membership concerning any public, private, governmental, commercial, or developmental activities that may affect the character and/or environment of the community, and then serves as a conduit between these entities. The association may initiate, endorse, or oppose issues that may affect the community, and when appropriate, establish, appoint, or commission the formation of citizen action and/or study groups.
