The controversial Ashler Hills Park in northern Scottsdale will become a reality.

City Council on Oct. 25 voted 7-0 to accept the site plans for the park and begin construction without any of the stipulations requested by residents of the Las Piedras neighborhood.

Council considered some stipulations, such as not allowing the basketball court to be used for pickleball, to be unnecessary because the court will not be striped for pickleball. Others, like “the city shall not form a public-private partnership, or otherwise accept private money to pay for amenities in Ashler Hills Park” were determined illegal by City Attorney Sherry Scott.

“It’s really not about site planning or the municipal use master site plan you’re taking action on tonight,” Scott said. “I don’t think that would be appropriate legally.”

Several council members expressed relief that the park is moving forward.
