Scottsdale City Council is moving forward with a state trust land rezoning case that has been in the works for over a decade with the goal of obtaining additional lands for the McDowell Sonoran Preserve as new acreage is expected to be auctioned off this fall.
The council voted 6-1 during a regular city council meeting July 5, to adopt Ordinance No. 4267, approving a zoning district map amendment for 4,020 acres of state land in the northern region of the city. Councilman Guy Phillips was the dissenting vote.
