In a few months, Scottsdale voters will begin receiving their 2019 ballot containing two initiatives that could shape the city for years to come. 

On the Nov. 5 all-mail ballot will be three questions for a Scottsdale bond program, as well as an option for voters to renew a maintenance and operations budget override for the Scottsdale Unified School District. 

The election could be landmark for the city, as failure of any or all of the initiatives could have implications to the day-to-day life of Scottsdale residents. 

Effects of not passing a major bond election in about 20 years was witnessed in 2018, when Scottsdale’s 68th Street Bridge was partially closed due to unsafe conditions after funds for city infrastructure had been passed over in recent elections.
