Question 1 authorizes an increase in the rate of transaction privilege and use taxes in the City by 0.10 percent (0.10%) for a period of ten (10) years to provide funds for transportation improvement projects. The tax amounts to one penny on every $10 purchase in Scottsdale. The increase is expected to take effect Feb. 1, 2019.

This proposition amends the city charter to prohibit the alteration of the natural state of preserve lands and limit the use of preserve funds for any purpose other than those specifically outlined in the proposed amendment unless authorized by Scottsdale registered voters at a general or special election.
