  Bond Task Force to recommend projects for inclusion into
  2013 Bond Program

The public has a chance to comment on the makeup of Scottsdale’s emerging 2013 Bond Program Tuesday, Dec. 11, when Scottsdale’s Bond Task Force meets to recommend a list of projects.   

Scottsdale residents also can join the conversation, submit ideas and share their priorities at www.SpeakUpScottsdale.com, the city’s online engagement tool.

The Task Force is considering 51 projects totaling $311.3 million for the proposed 2013 program. This exceeds a range of $200 to $250 million established by the Task Force for the size of the overall program. At its Dec. 11 meeting, the Task Force will determine which of the proposed projects are included in the program and which are dropped.

Tuesday’s Bond Task Force meeting will be held at 5 p.m. at the Scottsdale City Hall Kiva, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd. Information on the Bond Task Force and the upcoming meeting schedule can be found here.

Each of the projects under consideration has a description and dollar figure listed on the SpeakUp Scottsdale website, plus an area for citizen comments and a support button, which is similar to the “like” button on Facebook.  All comments received online will be reviewed by the Bond Task Force. 

Citizens can directly link to the projects under consideration here.

The Scottsdale City Council accepted final recommendations from the Scottsdale 2012 Bond Task Force last May and voted to postpone an election until fall 2013. 

A new 2013 Bond Task Force was formed to examine the city's priorities and help determine the size and content of a 2013 bond package.  The 2013 Task Force is using the proposed 2012 Bond Program as a starting point in its deliberations.
