Dear Scottsdale Neighbor,

Scottsdale's Desert Discovery Center (DDC) is envisioned as an interpretive, education and research center intended to complement the McDowell Sonoran Preserve experience and be a focal point for understanding human interaction with arid environments. It's generating a lot of conversation in the community today, and we're sharing this message with you so that you have the best and most accurate information.

The Gateway was identified as the site for the DDC decades ago - yet planning for the center has just begun in earnest. The City of Scottsdale awarded a contract to Desert Discovery Center Scottsdale, Inc. (scottsdaledesertcenter.org) in January of this year to create the visitor experience, develop a business plan and explore private fundraising potential. In addition, the City awarded an architectural contract to Swaback Partners in June 2016 that will determine what the facility will look like, what size it will be and how much it will cost. Conversation in the community sometimes suggests these things are decided - they aren't. 

We'll continue to update you on the progress of the Desert Discovery Center since we know you share our commitment to Scottsdale's legacy of creativity, innovation and progress.  In the meantime, visit our website supportscottsdaleddc.org

Best Regards,
