– Fundraising Goal Met for Legal Research Related to APS Powerline Proposal –
We are happy to report that our Big Park Council fundraising effort reached its goal of $10,000, thanks to the many generous donors to this campaign including the very generous matching gift from the Sedona Village Partnership! We will suspend our fundraising for now and only resume fundraising in the event Coconino National Forest gives approval for construction of the transmission line and Earthrise Law Center reports that we have a high likelihood of success pursuing litigation to stop the construction of the line. It is so gratifying to see how our community stepped up to support a common cause!
