City of Scottsdale bond meetings

| Alexandra Duemer

A list of 67 potential city construction projects that includes rebuilding several city parks, adding new bridges, improving roads and storm drainage, and modernizing the fire and police training facility is available for public review online and at five open house meetings scheduled through mid-March. 

Scottsdale’s City Council Capital Improvement Program Subcommittee asked staff to conduct the outreach on the unfunded projects which are considered needs by city staff, but without funding to move from concept to construction.

These projects are presented for public review and comment. Residents can find an interactive map of the projects, with links to provide feedback here. Note: numbers 3, 42 and 62 on this list directly impact DC Ranch.

Scottsdale is also hosting five open house meetings where people can ask questions and learn more about the proposals:
