City of Scottsdale General Plan 2001
The General Plan is the culmination of Scottsdale's collective vision for how its citizens want the community to evolve over time. The General Plan is an important document that ultimately affects how the community looks and feels, and how future needs will be met.
The General Plan is a statement of goals and policies that work as the primary tool for guiding the future development of the city. On a daily basis the city is faced with tough choices about growth, housing, transportation, neighborhood improvement, and service delivery. A General Plan provides a guide for making these choices by describing long-term goals for the city's future as well as policies to guide day-to-day decisions.
