Community Council

Comunity Council Meeting in the Red Room Governance and the Community Council

In the 1980s, residents of Arcosanti formed the Arcosanti Community Council (ACC) to increase the voice of community members regarding issues and affairs important to living at Arcosanti.

The ACC is a resident forum independent of the Cosanti Foundation and is responsible for community governance matters. The ACC hosts entertainment and educational events, sponsors business opportunities and mediates site issues. Decisions are made with a combination of voting and consensus developing, with greater consensus required the more significant the issue.
