2012 Bond Task Force

On May 1, the Scottsdale City Council accepted the final recommendations from the Scottsdale 2012 Bond Task Force and voted postpone a bond election until the Fall of 2013.

The Scottsdale Bond Task Force was established in July 2011 to help review and prioritize potential bond projects as the city considered a future bond election.  The task force reviewed 47 projects totaling $288 Million for consideration as part of a future bond package.
