VIRGINIA'S VISION

Virginia's Vision

Scottsdale is a great city – and Virginia envisions making it even better by inviting more involvement from citizens whose diverse opinions and ideas will make Scottsdale stronger.

 

Updating the city’s General Plan is a priority. The process not only needs to be inclusive, it must reflect our core values and include a reasonable consensus of what we want our future to look like for generations.

As mayor, Virginia intends to initiate the “Urban Forest Project” to enhance our environment.  Using trees adapted for our desert climate, the program will be a tree-planting project throughout our neighborhoods, parks and commercial areas that will provide more shade, reduce heat retention, keep our air cleaner and improve walkability. 

 

FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

“We are a land-locked city with less than 1% of our land that isn’t protected for open space undeveloped.  Because we can’t grow out, we must grow up in approved areas if we want to expand our economy, attract businesses and create more jobs for our residents.”

 

STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT

"Updating the city’s General Plan is a priority.  It must be inclusive and reflect our core values.  But updating the General Plan is only a start. Not since the 1990’s has our community gathered for conversations that address the future of Scottsdale for generations to come. As mayor, I want to lead the community’s involvement in what I am calling ‘Visioning 2050.'"

 

QUALITY OF LIFE

“As mayor, I intend to initiate the Urban Forest Project to enhance our environment.  Using trees adapted for our desert climate, the program will be an expansive tree-planting project in our neighborhoods, parks and commercial areas that will not only provide more shade, but will help reduce heat retention, improve walkability and keep our air cleaner.”
