Draft Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Element
Please read the Neighborhood Preservation and Revitalization Element Introduction and Goals and Policies below, then rate and/or comment on each.
INTRODUCTION Scottsdale has a long-standing commitment to providing a quality physical and social environment for its citizens, and, subsequently, the community places high value on the preservation and enhancement of its neighborhoods. This is evidenced by Scottsdale citizens’ identification of Neighborhood Planning as the third-tier of the Scottsdale General Plan during the 1994-1996 CityShape 2020 process.
As Scottsdale nears build-out, most of the city’s neighborhoods will have already been established, and few entirely new neighborhoods will be built over the next decade. Into the future, the city must look at preserving and enhancing those qualities that make Scottsdale’s neighborhoods safe, special and vibrant. It will be equally as critical to sensitively integrate new development and revitalized properties into Scottsdale’s neighborhoods.
The goals and policies of this element recognize that the preservation and revitalization of Scottsdale’s mature neighborhoods is critical to maintaining and strengthening the health, safety, prosperity, and enjoyment of the community.
