Who We Are And What We Do

Since incorporation in 1997, 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.

We represent more than 6,100 citizens

Today the Council includes 23 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.

The Big Park Council acts as the voice of the Village to government and private organizations affecting Village life. The Council provides unique value to the region in the form of communication, education, and collaboration.

The Council meets monthly on the second Thursday of the month at 9am.  Currently, all meetings are via Zoom.  Sign up for our Newsletter to receive Community News and meeting details.  Check the calendar for future meeting dates.

Forest Service Extends Deadline to Early September 2024 for Greenlighting APS Powerline Project

Due to ongoing delays in Arizona Public Service’s development of a final engineering study and other construction plans, Coconino National Forest has delayed issuing a final long-term special use permit for APS’s proposed 13.4-mile high-voltage transmission line between McGuireville and Village of Oak Creek substations.  CNF staff expects to publish the final EA (Environmental Assessment), which includes the special-use permit, on September 5, 2024.

Publication of the final EA in the local Flagstaff newspaper triggers a 45-day objection period for interested parties such as Big Park Council to file an appeal before construction begins.  The Council anticipates filing an appeal of the proposed overhead route with the regional Forest Service office in Alburquerque.  CNF is expected to include some undergrounding in the final EA – mostly along Beaverhead Flat Road – but very little in the VOC area or along Kel Fox trail.

Please go to the APS Transmission Line section (link) for more information.
