Desert Color was recently mentioned in an article by St. George News titled “Nostalgia for the future: Southern Utah Bicycle Alliance advocates for active transportation policies”
Desert Color was mentioned in this snippet:
One example of this kind of thinking is the new Desert Color Community being developed out toward the St. George airport. The developers started out by thinking, ‘What does an ideal community look like for Southern Utah?’ and decided it was open but connected with trails that link neighborhoods to parks, schools, commercial areas, health care and education. Each home, no matter what size or type, is required to have a front porch.
“We keep building roads, and as the roads get filled up, we keep expanding the roads and people have to go further and further just to do ordinary daily activities,” Mitch Dansie, general manager of Desert Color, said. “We want Desert Color to be a community where every home feels welcoming and where you can sit on your front porch and talk with your neighbors and intact with them. The concept is you’re not tucked away behind walls. There’s a lot of value in that.”
Without question, COVID-19 has presented the world with health and economic challenges at scales, magnitudes and velocities that none of us have ever experienced or anticipated. The way the world is doing business has been drastically altered, and no one knows for certain what a “new normal” will look like or when it will come.
That said, Desert Color is moving forward, with an abundance caution and optimism. Here are some items we would like you to know:
Desert Color’s primary concern is the health and safety of its employees, its many contractors and subcontractors, those who visit the development, and the general public.
Desert Color is following local, state and national policies and procedures, like “social distancing,” to help prevent the virus from spreading.
Desert Color has a deep and abiding commitment to environmental, financial and social sustainability. As the project continues to move forward, Desert Color will be checking and assessing its development activities and investments to ensure that the project achieves positive long-term outcomes for its stakeholders and the community.
Desert Color partners are well positioned and have accounted for market volatility in the longevity of the development. We are fully confident in our ability to bring the full vision of Desert Color to life.
To date, Desert Color has been fortunate. We haven’t seen a crippling impact to the overall project. We continue to make investments in the project. Homes are being built and sold. We invite you to reach out to our builders and our commercial partners. They are engaging with the public in accordance with appropriate “social distancing” measures and would be delighted to hear from you.
Come what may, we are not going away. Desert Color is more than just a project. We are members of the southern Utah family, and we are committed to help the family move through and beyond the challenges and frustrations that, no doubt, await us.
Be safe, and we hope you will join us at Desert Color.
