We need more events in the community. For families to do on the weekends. Tempe has the Beach park and Mill Ave which they are constantly doing events on let's do more in Scottsdale! I will gladly help!
The City needs a ethics hotline where employees and taxpayers can report ethical concerns in city government.
Let's have weekend evening food-truck events at local libraries. These could become a gathering place for the community, a place to interact and create connections while generating income for the city. Portland (shown in the image) does this and the sense of community is almost palpable when people from all walks of life and different neighborhoods for once interact and get to know ... Read More
Coffee shops are OK for some things, but Scottsdale could use places for more-focused co-working for Web, mobile, and desktop software developers and designers. The meeting rooms of public libraires should be made availale on an on-going basis for tech co-working, with possibly time in the evening for presentations on technical topics.
Hayden Road south of Indian School Road is blighted in places and in need of a character to reflect the older housing in the area. The area north and south of Oak and especially at Monte Vista are an embarrassment to the city. The decline deters business from investing in the area and people from investing in the homes. A few years ago SRP updated the substation and it made a big di... Read More
Elevated Trail on McDowell Road – Bad Idea Building an elevated trail on or near McDowell Road is a terrible and costly idea. Using New York City’s unused elevated train tracks to create a landscaped path was a great idea because the track were already there and would have cost more to remove. The urban density of New York is twice that of Scottsdale. I have lived here for o... Read More
Instead of yet another traffic light. It could have a cafe so shoppers could take a break and watch traffic roll by on Scottsdale Road. This would ease traffic congestion in an area with no shortage of cars. At least move the signs up to remind drivers that flashing red means stop, then go. Every time I'm caught at this light everyone sits there waiting for the lights to... Read More
Approach the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian community regarding the land that borders McKellips Road south and Hayden Road east . . . currently that piece of land is vacant and farmland. How about Legend City 2020? Reintroduce Valley residents to our original theme park built with 21st Century technology for ride safety and summer cooling. Right next to the Tempe Marketplace....

Scottsdale is a relatively small but loyal community. When jobs are posted with the city, hiring preference should be given to qualified residents, who will then turn around and spend the money they earn in the City of Scottsdale. I was commuting to downtown Phoenix for a while, but would much rather work in my own city. I am super-experienced in my field, but was not even int... Read More
Scottsdale parachutes not just golden Call it the case of the $450,000 e-mail. A high-level Scottsdale city executive suggests a one-line change to a lucrative early-retirement package about to be offered to eligible city employees and as a result he walks away with an extra $17,750 a year for the rest of his life. This, in addition to the more than $292,000 in cash and benefits he gets as a ... Read More
