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.
What is A.D.O.B.E
“ADOBE is honored to have as our November 16, 2017 meeting presenter, Attorney Ralph Pew, representing the Pew and Lake Law Firm, in Mesa, Arizona. Mr. Pew has been an attorney for over 38 years with expertise focused on Land Use and Zoning Laws. Pew will present a program explaining Arizona’s Annexation Law. The intent of the program is to inform Gold Canyon citizens on the nuances of the Annexation Law, from an educational perspective, not from a position of political conflict. ADOBE believes well informed citizens are essential for a democracy to properly function because it gives citizens power and knowledge about their self- interests. Mr. Pew espouses the motto: “I think people have the right to propose development changes on their property that are not harmful.” Mr. Pew is giving this presentation gratis to the community. A Q&A with Attorney Pew will follow the presentation.
- That local citizens should be responsive to their own needs by allowing them to maintain local standards and controls, and that grass roots involvement best reflects established local values.
- Planned, quality development will enhance property values, lifestyle, and security.
- Property owners have the right to do with their land that which is in the law, in conjunction with local ordinances, and state and federal laws that preserve the health, safety and welfare of the public.
- Quality commercial development – which is essential to orderly growth and controlled and logical taxation – will ensure commercial developers are attracted to the community while keeping in compliance with established local standards of development.
The purpose of A.D.O.B.E. is to gather and disseminate to its membership information
pertaining to any public, private, government, commercial or developmental activities that
may affect the present or future character or environment of the community, and
to serve as a conduit between these entities and the membership
