Our Friday, April 11th Town Hall with Area Government Speaker starts at 9 AM at a NEW LOCATION - Anthem Civic Building, 3701 Anthem Way, Anthem 85086. NRDHCA, the meeting sponsor, has planned these meetings for the 2nd Friday of each month throughout the year. We have speakers from the State, County and City of Phoenix. We thank the Anthem Community Council for arranging the Civic Building room for the entire year of 2014. You will find an announcement on our website, newsletter and other local newspaper/media on a monthly basis prior to each meeting. NR/DHCA goal is to encourage government transparency and community participation.
