Officials at City Hall say many of Scottsdale’s largest and most innovative projects, initiatives and programs were driven by the hopes and ideas of residents and business owners.

Today, municipal leaders say they provide more opportunities than ever for community stakeholders to shape Scottsdale’s future by voicing their opinions about various local issues and projects.

Scottsdale officials say they want resident feedback this season on two important public projects.

  • Parks & Recreation Master Plan: Your feedback in this online questionnaire will help ensure future parks and recreation priorities and goals are citizen-driven and meet the evolving demands of the community. The questionnaire is available in English and Spanish.
  • Community Assistance Office: Provide your feedback to help the city prioritize federal funds to assist low-to-moderate income individuals and families in our community via Speak Up Scottsdale.   

Scottsdale’s award-winning public involvement initiatives are part the ‘Collaboration and Engagement’ chapter of the voter-approved General Plan — but more than that, these initiatives are the continuation of Scottsdale’s legacy as a community strengthened and built by and for its residents.
