Spring, one or our two beautiful seasons in Southern Arizona, is nearly here. With that comes the opportunity to enjoy the many great outdoor activities in the Vail area. From Colossal Cave Park to Sahuaro National Park. From Del Lago golf course to The Arizona Trail. From Cienega Creek Natural Preserve to biking Old Spanish Trail. There are numerous activities we look forward to.
After watching the bitter cold captivate much of our nation for over a week, we are fortunate to be living in our oasis. Though we may not have the water, we definitely have the rest of “it.”

With growth at our doorstep, how do we embrace what is coming while maintaining our paradise? Vail is unique and we want to keep it that way. But how? How does our community determine our community’s future?

We, as a community, have an incredible amount of opportunity ahead of us. It is said, “it is easier to steer a moving ship, than one that’s sitting in the docks.” There is no question, Vail is a moving ship. The question is – who is steering?

Brad Anderson grew up on a family farm in northern Colorado and from Colorado State University. He joined the Greater Vail area Chamber of Commerce when he moved to southern Arizona as an Edward Jones Financial Advisor in Vail.
