Civic Center Mall Master Plan


Project Information

Established in the 1960’s, what is currently known as the Scottsdale Civic Center has evolved as the city’s civic and arts headquarters playing home to City Hall, Library, Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Work is underway to develop a plan for future uses of the space and identify opportunities for needed improvements and renovations.

The goal of the Civic Center Master Plan is to address infrastructure deficiencies, improve public park amenities, expand performance and festival capabilities, and create a destination point and economic catalyst.

Ultimately, the project will provide the necessary plan and documents to update physical elements of Scottsdale’s Civic Center based on input gathered from an extensive internal and external outreach process. It will reflect necessary improvements, upgrades, and expansion of uses for both citizens and visitors from near and far for both small informal activities, and grand formal events. Once approved, the Civic Center Master Plan will serve as the guiding document for all future improvements to Civic Center.

During the first phase of public outreach we received hundreds of comments from the community.  We learned a lot about what people like in the Civic Center area and what areas are in need of improvements.
