Please sign our petition to prohibit Greer Lodge from using  manufactured steel containers for cabin construction in Greer!

We urge you to sign and circulate the petition (link: Petition BOA 052521) to the Apache County Board of Adjustments which is due to hear an appeal by the owner of the Greer resort to allow use of metal shipping containers to be used for housekeeping structures.

Impacts to the environment and threats to the natural beauty, open-spaces and rusticity of the Greer community have recently become more pronounced.

The Greer Coalition’s overall objective is to work with federal, state andcounty officials and other individuals and organizations in dealing with these issues.

Some of the current projects the Greer Goalition is working on are:

  • Monitoring full implementation of Greer’s zoning ordinance adopted in 2011: Article 6
  • Working with Apache County officials toward full implementation of the Comprehensive Land Use Plan for Greer.

Other Goals:

  • To promote community spirit and pride, and to foster good will and friendship among the residents of Greer.
  • To Provide an open forum for exchange of ideas and discussion regarding local issues and concerns.
  • To encourage and support participation in charitable activities that are beneficial to Greer.
  • To help other organizations with similar purposes.
