Desoto Citizens for Growth (DCG) is a local grass roots nonprofit organization established to give local citizens a strong, cohesive voice concerning the explosive growth occurring in Desoto County and its cities.
Local citizens often feel "left out" of local decisions and are not aware of developments/growth planned for their area. Citizens have the right to be informed of all growth/development occurring in their community and to actively participate in the decisions affecting their communities.
Look for a new revitalized DCG and website in the new year, 2007. More info to be announced, here!
Pages under present construction include Recycling and Transportation. Recycling will offer the latest information on where and how to recycle in Desoto County. The transportation page will offer information for drivers in Desoto County.
