Help Scottsdale become the most outstanding community for those 60+

According to the latest census, Scottsdale had the highest percentage of people 65 and older among U.S. cities with more than 100,000 residents. This number is expected to double by 2030.

The city, with support from the Maricopa Association of Governments, is exploring ways to make Scottsdale more age-friendly. What’s most important to you . . . or what do you anticipate will be most important to you as you age?

Let us know what you think by taking a brief 10 question online survey. The deadline is Friday, Feb. 28. This communitywide effort is supported by important partners including residents, nonprofit agencies and places of worship.
