Scottsdale names Higgs to planning commission

By Wayne Schutsky | Scottsdale Progress

The Scottsdale City Council has named Renee Higgs to the city’s Planning Commission to fill the vacancy left when former Commissioner Kelsey Pasquel resigned in March.

The appointment comes amid scrutiny of the Planning Commission’s composition, with some residents voicing concerns that its membership — many of whom are developers themselves or work closely with the development community — are too cozy with the businesses they are charged with overseeing.

Resident Andrea Alley, a prominent voice in the discussion over the redevelopment of Papago Plaza, cited a high number of recusals and called the commission a “good old boys club.”
