Economic prosperity is shining bright in Scottsdale, officials say, as the Valley of the Sun continues to attract and retain businesses resulting in thousands of new jobs.
It has been five years since Scottsdale adopted an economic development strategic plan in February 2015, and officials say 6,000 new jobs has been one of many outcomes. Additionally, 32 new companies have been recruited or retained.
“Since approval of the plan there has been a direct economic impact to the City of Scottsdale of $34.7 million with nearly 6,000 new jobs added to our community,” Economic Development Director Rob Millar said.
