DDC - Online Petition for Public Vote & Comment For the Record

An on line petition has been started to support a public vote on the DDC. Signing it will put added pressure on the city council to require a public vote on the DDC so if you agree, please sign it. You can access and sign it at: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/607/562/821/stop-scottsdale-mayor-jim-lane-and-city-council-from-bulldozing-our-preserve/#sign. It will supplement, and add to, the original petition we submitted in March.

The city has replaced the on line survey on the DDC with a comment form so you are encouraged to access it and register your comments and concerns about the DDC. You can access it at: http://www.scottsdaleaz.gov/construction/desert-discovery-center and click on “comment form” under “Community Conversations & Public Outreach”. Any comments received on this form will be put in the public record on the DDC so it is important to have a lot of them.

The city has scheduled a study session for the council on September 19th where the council will direct staff on what they want to do about the petition I had previously submitted back in March. That petition was to require a public vote to put anything in the Preserve other than trails and trail heads and also a public vote to use any Preserve funds for anything other than land acquisitions and building trails and trail heads. Since this is a study session, only 5 citizens can speak, at the beginning of the meeting, and no decision will be made, however the council’s desired action on that petition should be determined at this meeting. I will send out a request to e-mail the council, with specific things we want to happen at that meeting, as we get closer to the meeting date.
