Phase I of the Canyon Country Community Center project is currently under construction and includes improvements to the Mint Canyon Channel, installation of the infiltration system, building pad preparation and rough grading of the site. Currently, the contractor is working on improving the channel which a portion will be boxed allowing park amenities over the top of the channel. Phase I construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2019 at which time Phase II, the community center building and site improvements, will begin.

The Ground Beneath Me; Not Above Me, So Enjoy Life
On Display August 2 to December 3, 2019
Canyon Country Jo Anne Darcy Library
The images in this display were created by a local photographer who had cancer and radiation treatment, but did not let that stop him from making art. Through the difficult ordeal, the artist continued to photograph, create art, appreciate nature, live and love life.

This exhibit hopes to remind everyone to stay positive, have a good attitude and continue to love life.
