Scottsdale is looking for residents to serve on a new task force designed to develop financial strategy recommendations to protect open space and quality of life.

Nine positions are available on the Protect and Preserve Scottsdale Task Force, which was approved by City Council at its Sept. 13 meeting.

The task force will meet twice monthly beginning in 2023 and develop recommendations to Scottsdale City Council through identifying and quantifying unfunded needs for the protection, preservation and perpetual maintenance of the city’s open spaces, public safety and other needs, according to a press release.

To be considered, interested applicants must submit an online application by Thursday, Nov. 3. Current members of a Scottsdale board or commission are eligible for consideration and can serve concurrently.

Members of City Council will review materials and nominate candidates from the applicant pool in November, with interviews and appointments scheduled to take place in December. The task force’s first official meeting will take place in early 2023.

All appointees are required to comply with the municipal ethics code and attend a training session before officially beginning their term on the task force.
