Building on the March 30 workshop, the next phase of public involvement involved a planning workshop over April 17-19. The workshop took place in meetings covering three evenings and two days, at Scottsdale Community College. The goal of these meetings was to continue to foster discussion, gather further input and ideas on community transportation needs and concerns and begin shaping options for how Scottsdale's transportation system will work in the future.
