The City needs a ethics hotline where employees and taxpayers can report ethical concerns in city government.
There is a very dangerous 45 degree exit intersection which handles over a million vehicles each year and is an unacceptable traffic engineering plan that can be economically corrected/eliminated with a round-a-bout to be located a few hundred yards east of that intersection. It would improve safety, enhance traffic flow, and automatically reduce speeds of over 60MPH on Indian Bend.  ... Read More
I think it would be a good idea if the improvments made to Indian school rds between Hayden and Pima Rd were completed before Thomas Rd starts. Everyday while walking my pet in my neighborhood I see the same spraypaint markings identifing issues unfinished from that project a few years ago. Broken sidewalks and asphalt stamping on some sreet entrances and some aren't. Please finish Indian ... Read More
Pickleball is the fastest growing participation sport in Arizona. Virtually every sizeable city in the Valley, except Scottsdale, has public courts. Fountain Hills has 6 courts (3 of which are lighted) and over 150 members of their public “club”.While the game is played by all ages, it’s particularly attractive to the over 50 set --- perfectly matching Scottsdale&r...

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
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.
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
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
This being Arizona's 100th Anniversary it would be a way of Scottsdale to celebrate through a public sculpture to honor the past and leave a rememberance into the future. Scottsdale has been a leader and a example for many communities in Arizona and in the world for embracing the arts. Not sure maybe this is already in the works but would volunteer in anyway to make this a reality. ... Read More
