Community Governance Overview

The DC Ranch Vision

From the outset, DC Ranch was envisioned

as a special community. Its fruition is the

result of thoughtful planning and careful

consideration of how the elements that

create a community fit together.

Architectural integrity and design,

maintenance of roads and security, and

developing a sense of connectedness

among residents are integral components

of the DC Ranch experience. And though

these three operational areas are certainly

interconnected, they are distinct services

that require a range of expertise. As a

result, three governance entities oversee

the delivery of the three separate services.

All three entities work toward the same

goal: to serve residents and create a

community that is beautiful, functions well,

and creates a deep sense of belonging.

Community Council


The mission of the Community Council is to

facilitate a connected and welcoming community

that instills pride and a sense of belonging in

each DC Ranch resident. The Council’s work

includes visioning and facilitating initiatives that

enhance residents’ quality of life, serve collective

interests and promote the DC Ranch brand.

These benefits make DC Ranch a very special

place to live and work.

of Directors sets policy and hires the Council’s

Executive Director. Directors are self-elected with

three-year terms starting in April. Two-thirds

of the Directors are required to be DC Ranch

property owners or residents and one Director

must be a Covenant Commissioner.

Ranch Association


The mission of the Ranch Association is to serve

Organizational Structure

Planned Communities Statutes. Every residential

unit or lot in DC Ranch has one membership

in the Association. A seven-member Ranch

Association Board of Directors sets policy and

hires the Association’s Executive Director. Board

members must be DC Ranch property owners or

residents. The board is elected by Neighborhood

Voting Members who are elected by owners to

represent each of DC Ranch’s 44 neighborhoods.

Board members serve two-year terms that start

in April.

Covenant Commission


The mission of the Covenant Commission is to

ensure quality design within DC Ranch and to

maintain harmony with our desert environment.

The Commission establishes guidelines for

architectural and landscape design for both

residential and commercial properties. Its work

provides DC Ranch with a distinctive community

character that enhances property values. The

Commission’s responsibilities include design

review, inspection and approvals throughout the

building process.

Organizational Structure

The Covenant Commission is the only DC Ranch

governing entity that remains under the

developer’s control. The five-member Covenant

Commission is appointed by the developer

(DMB) with each member serving a three-year

term. They review design submissions for quality

and harmony.
