The City Council’s recent approval to begin work on capital improvement projects (CIP) is a testament to Scottsdale’s financial sustainability commitment.
Earlier this year, the Capital Improvement Subcommittee set out to identify, prioritize and find funding sources for projects that address infrastructure needs. Funding was approved for two flood control projects, roads and transportation improvements and a scope change of the Vista Del Camino Park and Indian Wash, to include a master planning process.
As reported in the Scottsdale Independent, funding dollars will come from the General Fund and transportation fund contingency transfers. Voters turned down CIP improvement funding twice in the last 5 years; significant infrastructure needs still remain.
Those needs will need to be addressed one way or another in the near future.
