Stakeholders in Scottsdale’s arts community are concerned that a draft General Plan that could be sent to voters later this year does not do enough to support and grow the city’s longstanding arts scene.
The city is in the process of updating General Plan 2035 in anticipation of sending it to City Council for approval in June before it goes on the ballot in November.
The new document – which covers a range of topics from land use and sustainability to transportation – would set a broad vision for the city’s growth and development over the next decade or more.
Unlike the city’s existing plan, the new draft includes a specific section dedicated to arts and culture.
