What We Do
Since incorporation in 1996, the Council has provided the Big Park Region, including the Village of Oak Creek, with a structured, representational organization to serve the community’s interests. Today, the Council includes between 26-30 Residential, Business and Educational organizations, who in turn, represent more than 6,100 citizens. The Council’s focus is not limited to our members. Unlike individual HOA’s and enterprises – our mission embraces the best interests of the entire community.
BPRCC provides unique value to our region in the form of communication and collaboration.
The Council has been instrumental in significant, high impact initiatives that are part of the community’s sense of place:
- Sponsored the application for designation as an International Dark-Sky Community.
- A key stakeholder responsible for SR-179 Scenic Byway project and ongoing stewardship.
- Led development and adoption of Community Plans that were historically incorporated as part of the Verde Valley Land Use Plan and Yavapai County Comprehensive Plan.
- A newly formed committee to create and support an ongoing Emergency Preparedness Plan and communication channel.
- Promote the best interests of the Big Park Regional Community by studying the problems affecting the Community and seeking solutions;
- To give expression to the Member Organizations of the Corporation;
- To represent the interests of the Community to the County, State and Federal governments and to any persons or organizations affecting this Community; and
- To provide a forum for residents, property owners, business owners, educational institutions and investors within the Community to resolve problems and advance the interests of the Community.
The Big Park Regional Coordinating Council discusses issues and shares information. Where appropriate, we provide input to County, State and Federal agencies. We do not have formal authority but we can influence decisions that affect the livability of our community. The Council is a 501(C)6 Arizona corporation.
