What is the Copper Mountain Mesa Community Association (CMMCA)?
The CMMCA was formed by a group of area landowners in 1971 to provide an organized, communal response to the challenges and opportunities facing the Copper Mountain Mesa (see also History). The CMMCA manages the Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center (CMMCC), which includes the Firestation on the property.
