Public Construction Projects
While not a usual problem, occasionally new businesses find themselves unexpectedly in a construction zone. In the critical early months of operating a small business the impact of road construction, water or sewer improvements or similar actions can significantly affect the business. As part of the discussions with the City, it would serve the small business owner well to inquire of Capital Project Management if there are any capital (construction) projects planned at or near the business location. You may want to project out three years but even one year would be helpful.
To check on projects: Capital Improvement projects
You can also call 480-312-7250. Call this same number to inquire about private companies that have permits to construct in the Right-of-Way.
You may also want to check to see if there are any other agencies or organizations such as the telephone company, cable company, and others that have projects scheduled for construction in the public right-of-way. This can be done through the Blue Stake office at (602) 263-1100. Blue Stake is not a service of the City of Scottsdale.
