Ryan Davis, member of the Community Council:

"It is the mission of the Community Council to help foster and support a more satisfying and fulfilling lifestyle for Arcosanti Residents so that they may best achieve the growth of the arcology.  To do this, the Council will act as a sponsor of community activities, a facilitator and mediator in issues of community, and a generator of income for community needs.

The Community Council is a 7 member group of community elected residents, who serve as liaisons of the community to the Cosanti Foundation and the Board of Trustees.  Meetings are held weekly and are open to all residents of Arcosanti.  By uniting in a common purpose and being committed to the same values we can most effectively and efficiently focus and direct our energies."
