More than 300 signatures have been gathered to convince city leaders to rethink the connecting of 118th Street from Ranch Gate Road to Dynamite Boulevard in north Scottsdale.
Scottsdale resident David Eigel says he is concerned the half-mile connection will change the character of the Troon North community and provide an avenue for pass-through traffic that will add to growing congestion of the area.
Mr. Eigel says he would rather see money spent on improvements to the Troon Mountain Loop bike lanes and sidewalks. The only problem: the city of Scottsdale isn’t spending any money to complete the half-mile portion of 118th Street.
