Manross: Anonymous Scottsdale general plan mailings, signs spreading misinformation

Posted

Who is the anonymous group behind the hit piece and negative signs against the Scottsdale general plan? Who are you and who are your financial backers?

If you are unwilling to identify yourselves...what is it that you are hiding?

Why hasn’t your organization registered with the city? Are you associated with elements of the development community and special interest groups, which oppose the new general plan because it will raise the bar on requirements regarding new developments?

You owe it to this community to come out of the shadows and identify yourselves and your true motivations. The street signs and mailings are filled with untruths and misinformation.

Many of us are unhappy with the number of new apartments, their density, and their height. The new general plan proposal will further protect our Scottsdale neighborhoods by adding more development costs and greater limitations on development.

It requires higher design standards, more open space and many other community benefits. And most importantly, it further protects our Preserve.

Vote YES on Prop. 463.

Editor’s Note: Larry Manross is a longtime resident of Scottsdale, and husband of former mayor Mary Manross.
