Arcosanti wants to improve road

Donate to Arcosanti roadwork on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28

The two-mile dirt road stretch leading from Cordes Junction to Arcosanti is in need of a bit of repair work. Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28, is the time to contribute to this “city of the future” project located at the junction of Interstate 17 and Highway 69.

Arcosanti, a nonprofit educational institution founded in 1970 and focused on innovative urban design, is taking part in this year’s national nonprofit #GivingTuesday, Nov. 28. It hopes to raise $10,000 to pay for the start of a serious upgrade to the Arcosanti Road.

Visitors may have experienced the bumps and boulders in the dirt road to get to the grounds. Those two miles also stand in the way of building new structures, the release states.

To contribute, visit arcosanti.org on Nov. 28 and donate to #GivingTuesday for the Arcosanti Road. Arcosanti is a project of the Cosanti Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Your donation is tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
