A groundbreaking $25 million project is taking shape in the heart of Fountain Hills, Arizona.

Fountain Hills, which was named a Dark Sky Community in 2018, is planning the groundbreaking of its International Dark Sky Discovery Center. Construction is scheduled to start in March.

Joe Bill, president of the International Dark Sky Discovery Center, says the goal is “to create an international centerpiece that will inspire future scientists and people of all ages to understand how important dark skies are for the well-being of humans, plants, and animals and for opening the window to the observable universe.”

Here's what to know about the observatory being built in Fountain Hills.

Arizona's darkest places:These parks and cities have the best night skies for stargazing

What is the International Dark Sky Discovery Center in Fountain Hills?

The 23,000-square-foot observatory will house the largest telescope in metro Phoenix. It will also have the following:

“The mission is to provide STEM education experiences to students interested in the sciences; offer the observatory’s research capabilities to university students; inform visitors how dark skies relate to human health, wildlife conservation, nocturnal pollinators and night sky observation; and serve as an international astrotourism attraction for visitors of all ages,” said Bill.

The discovery center is planned to open in the fall of 2025.

Why is Fountain Hills a dark-sky city?

Fountain Hills received the Dark Sky Community designation in 2018. The International Dark-Sky Association grants this designation to places that promote and implement measures to preserve the natural darkness of the night sky.

Dark Sky Communities commit to reducing light pollution, promoting responsible outdoor lighting and raising awareness about the importance of preserving dark skies for astronomical observation.

Fountain Hills demonstrated a commitment to these principles by working to minimize light pollution and create an environment conducive to stargazing.

A big deal:This iconic park is Arizona's 1st Urban Night Sky Place

Fountain Hills becomes latest Valley community to prohibit urban camping

The Fountain Hills Town Council, during an August meeting, passed ordinances prohibiting urban camping and standing in streets and medians.

The council is now exploring ways the town can partner with an organization to provide shelter beds so they can enforce the camping ban, but no partner group has been identified yet.

Three ordinances were proposed at the Aug. 22 meeting to address concerns raised in a June meeting about the unsheltered population in the region. A proposed ordinance prohibiting panhandling, which was nearly identical to an ordinance passed in Glendale last fall, failed.

Fountain Hills joins several cities in Central Arizona that prohibit urban camping, including Tempe and Phoenix, but the number of people experiencing homelessness in the town is drastically lower than in those cities.

Two unhoused people were counted in Fountain Hills in January during the Maricopa Association of Governments' annual point-in-time count. In the August meeting, council members said the number was more like four or five.

Law blocks standing in roadways and medians

An ordinance that passed 4-3 prohibits “standing or stopping in the roadway, medians, or areas adjacent to roadways where the speed limit is 35 mph or greater.” Emergency and maintenance workers are exempt from the rule.

Councilmember Peggy McMahon said it was disingenuous for the council to say the ordinance is only about safety since it was originally proposed in relation to people experiencing homelessness.

“I think this is indirectly targetting panhandlers,” McMahon said in the August meeting. “I think we have to be very very careful about that because they are a vulnerable, protected class.”

Phoenix has similar ordinances preventing someone from standing in medians and streets.

Tempe has an ordinance prohibiting people from lying or sleeping in streets or on sidewalks.

Sen. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, has previously pushed legislation targeting panhandling. The most recent attempt was a bill proposed in January that aimed to prohibit people from asking for money from drivers stopped at red lights.

Urban camping ordinance not being enforced — yet

An ordinance that passed 5-2 will prohibit people from sleeping and camping in public roads. However, because of a decision from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, urban camping cannot be criminalized if there is no available shelter for people experiencing homelessness.

Mayor Ginny Dickey said the town is looking for an organization to partner with to provide shelter space — one hasn't been selected yet. Until an agreement is finalized, the ordinance will not be enforced.

Fountain Hills gets Snowee

Step inside the ice cream shop along Avenue of the Fountains and one is greeted by bright pastel colors, marble pink archways and a menu of Korean- and Japanese-inspired treats. As the newest ice cream shop to enter Fountain Hills, Snowee has quickly garnered a loyal following with its soft serve ice cream, shaved snow and Taiyaki, a waffle-style, fish-shaped pastry with flavors in red bean, custard, strawberry cheesecake and cinnamon, brown sugar and mozzarella cheese.

Inside, a neon sign reads, “Ice Cream Solves Everything.” Curated to perfection with a delightful menu of sweet treats, Snowee Owner John Hosoo Park wanted to bring something fun and refreshing to Fountain Hills. And while ice cream doesn’t solve quite everything, it does satisfy Park’s sweet tooth.

“A lot of my ideas and goals start from what I like to do or eat,” Park said, a former sushi chef and current owner of Oka Sushi, Snowee’s next-door neighbor. “That’s one of the reasons why I wanted to be a sushi chef, because I love sushi.”

Korean roots

Park is enthralled with the idea of being good at one thing at a time. Born and raised in Korea, he said many restaurants there focus on perfecting and serving a single signature dish.

“They have to really dissect it and be good at one thing because it’s very competitive,” Park said.

For Snowee, Park pulls from his memories as a boy in Korea enjoying Bingsu, a milk-based Korean shaved-ice dessert with sweet toppings like fresh fruit, syrup or red beans. As the owner of Snowee, Park wanted to recreate that same fresh taste in Fountain Hills.

“I want Snowee to be like Oka’s little sister,” Park said. “It doesn’t have to bring in a whole bunch of revenue, but as long as it’s something fun, people are going to cheer for it.”

For the ice cream shop’s interior, Park said he got the idea from a picture of a macaroon. He added the neon lights after he and his wife watched the hit TV series “Stranger Things.”

Fountain Hills resident, Cindy Strazis, visited Snowee with her son on Friday, Sept. 18, for some soft serve ice cream. A volunteer at Fearless Kitty Rescue, Strazis was all smiles as she enjoyed her ice cream on a muggy August day.

“It’s like being a kid again,” Strazis said.

It’s been nearly a decade since Park became a restaurant owner in Fountain Hills, adding that his very first customer still comes in to eat at his restaurant to this day.

“It’s a very rare experience. We don’t have the most population here, but I think when it comes to loyalty in general, I’m very thankful to be where I’m at,” Park said. “Our goal is to offer more at our standards and at our quality.”

Snowee is open from 12 noon to nine p.m., Monday through Saturday, with Sunday hours coming later this year. Snowee is located next to Oka Sushi at 16725 E. Avenue of the Fountains, Suite C105.
