Due to the property’s size as well as the location of the center, if could have offered the ability for the city and the region to carry out pioneering projects that they would have benefited from for many years to come.

Please take a look at the article in the link below.

  1. A similar fate for SDC would not necessarily be our best choice but it is not a bad one. It could bring business and jobs to the area, provide a central organization for a variety of community projects, serving as a unifying center for ecological, social service and educational needs of the Valley.
