The following four issues are particularly important to Scottsdale’s future:

Downtown

September 12, 2017

Downtown is the economic and cultural heart of our city. There are a lot of groups with visions and plans to enhance it. We will collaborate with them and help bring focus to the core of our city.

Financial sustainability

September 12, 2017

Scottsdale is a city with low taxes/high services, and benefits from robust tourism and retail sales tax revenues. It can’t be assumed that sales tax revenues will continue to increase indefinitely. And there are critical issues ahead: major infrastructure and capital improvement needs, underfunded police, fire department pension system, myriad spending proposals from downtown to WestWorld, to the Giant’s stadium improvements and much more.

Transportation

September 12, 2017

There are short- and long-term issues including infrastructure needs, reducing congestion and connectivity to the regional transportation system. All affect the quality of life for residents and businesses now and in the years to come.
