The next generation of Scottsdale leaders is beginning to take shape as young, working adults and parents seek to create their own future and build upon the foundation laid before them.
With desires to be represented at City Hall, options for affordable housing, more transportation, good schools and seeking an increase to family neighborhoods, the future some Millennials want doesn’t sound too far-fetched.
However, in a room full of Scottsdale residents who were mostly under the age of 50, having their priorities represented at City Hall was a common concern by those in attendance.
In reality, the younger generation is a minority within Scottsdale, as residents ages 20-39 represent less than 25 percent of the population.
