    I'd like to see the city embrace the idea of developing community gardens where residents can plant vegetables and other crops. The DC Ranch community in northern Scottsdale seems to have a prototype situation in development at this time and residents in the McDowell Mountain Ranch community have been eyeing an underutilized city-owned parking area that could be converted for that purpose. Even if money is not available for efforts of this type, offering advice, direction and cooperation in the form of access to unused city land would be a big boost to the locally grown food imitative and the green movement in general.

    Set aside local park space to be developed into community gardens. Provide infastructure (water, soil, and hardware) for each site. Allow residents to signup to use space and attend workshops to learn how to grow and sustain food in these gardens. Can ally with Valley Permaculture Alliance to help pick appropriate spots.

    Schools could use space for teaching about permaculture and agriculture.

    This project will install a storm drain system with Camelback Road from Scottsdale Road to the Indian Bend Wash.  The system will provide 100-year flood protection and allow for revitalization without the need for stormwater storage basins.

    This project will provide funding for the inspection each bridge within Scottsdale’s inventory to determine what is structurally needed to bring each bridge into conformance with current federal standards.  After the identification of any faults, the bridges will be prioritized and the corrections will be made to bring the bridges up to current standards.

    This project will purchase approximately 10 acres of land in north Scottsdale for the future construction of a Police District Facility.  Currently the farthest north facility is located at Thompson Peak Parkway and Pima Road.  The addition of a north facility would help to improve response times and bolster the police presence in North Scottsdale.

    This project will replace the existing temporary trailers designated as the Fire Training Facility.  It will include a new, two story, multi-use training building with classrooms, offices, conference rooms and storage areas.  This new building will allow the storage of fire training apparatus indoors for use during summer months and support climate controlled atmosphere required for the fire service candidate physical assessment testing (CPAT).
