In late April, Scottsdale City Council moved forward with approval of the 2022 Scottsdale Transportation Action Plan.

A municipal news report outlines the newly adopted transportation plan is focused on new transit technologies, updating of existing infrastructure like roads, streets, trails and pedestrian pathways.

“The Transportation Action Plan prioritizes enhancements to existing transportation modes throughout the city,” Transportation and Streets Director, Mark Melnychenko, told Communications Specialist Cristina Lenko at City Hall, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd. “How we get around Scottsdale is constantly evolving. The action plan gives staff the flexibility to meet the changing transportation needs of our residents and visitors.”

The municipal report outlines transportation priorities of Scottsdale City Council including:

  • Supporting sustainability and cost savings by preserving and maintaining infrastructure;
  • Ensuring flexibility to respond to changing technology and shifting priorities;
  • Closing system gaps and improving local and regional connectivity with path systems, trail corridors and transit routes;
  • Building complete streets to provide safe access for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities; and
  • Enhancing transit services with increased trolley frequency and connections.

Coined, “TAP 2022” within municipal hallways, city officials report the plan was developed alongside the 2035 General Plan and replaces the 2016 Transportation Master Plan.
