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
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....

I am sure you are aware Mayor Lane has already issued an RFP/Q for the DDC with a statement that $50 Million will be added to the 2013 Bond Issue and another $30+ million from "private" investors? Why should anyone believe you folks are being honest with Scottsdale citizens or have any integrity? Let me know immediately if you take offense to what Mayor Lane has done. If you ... Read More
Now that the Green Belt has been extended along Hayden and under Chaparral Road, speed bumps are needed for those ingressing and egressing the safeway shopping plaza. Someone is going to get killed, because people fly through there not seeing the bicyclists, pedestrians, etc... Slow the traffic down! Please.
Years ago I was excited at the prospect. We need to lobby them and get a Western Annex here in our great town. Again, we need to move beyond retail, food, and resorts. Those are all great things, but Phoenix is beating at our door, and so is the Pima community, all adding viable alternatives. If we sleep, we lose. Mesa's art center is amazing, and one day their downtown will take hold. We have ... Read More
Ponds, marshes, trees, and an education center (museum), where people can learn, and the birds that are more typical of our environment and of the West in general are free to find refuge in this wonderful multi-acre, man-and-nature-made protected environment. I do not have a location in mind, but north Scottsdale is probably the most logical area. This could be a rallying point for the cit... Read More
A rose garden for all generations to come. A tourist draw, a meeting place, a learning center. Roses do very well in our heated climate. Possible location would be the Green Belt park just south of Chaparral Park (the old golf course). That is a beautiful central location, close to downtown, but yet, as a park, it is a bit underwhelming. Much of the infrastructure is in place. Add pathways, gaz... Read More

There is a lot of vacant land in the Downtown / South Scottsdale area owned by the City of Scottsdale. Turn some of these lots into temporary spaces and create mini-parks, putt putt golf courses, temporary retail spaces, retail incubators, food truck parking, etc.
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
