Scottsdale voters weigh-in on city's future blueprint in November election

A plan defining Scottsdale’s goals for growth, development, character, mobility and a variety of other community aspects will go to voters Nov. 2. 

Proposition 463 asks voters to consider whether to ratify or not ratify the Scottsdale General Plan 2035, adopted by the Scottsdale City Council in June. 

This Scottsdale election will be conducted completely via mail. Every registered voter was sent a ballot with a postage-paid return envelope. An election informational pamphlet was mailed to each household with a registered voter in late September and ballots were mailed in early October. 

Arizona State Statutes require each city to adopt a comprehensive, long-range General Plan to guide the physical development of the community. Arizona law requires that communities adopt a General Plan and outlines the content the plan must contain. The current Scottsdale General Plan was adopted in 2001 and ratified by the voters in 2002.

Tuesday, Oct. 26: Recommended date to mail completed ballot

Tuesday, Nov. 2 (7 p.m.): Deadline for ballots to be received (NOT postmarked) by Maricopa County
