Scottsdale Exploring How To Expand Our Economy and Tourism  

In my email last week, I mentioned that to continue being a world-class city where people want to work, live and visit, we must grow and diversify our economy.  One of the primary ways we can accomplish that is by expanding our efforts to attract visitors.

As you know, the tourism industry is the engine that drives our economy.  So it is critical that we consider every option to not only sustain our tourism trade, but also expand it.

Working together we must explore all opportunities, because the competition for tourists is intensifying.  We can not afford to rest on our laurels.  We must be creative to compete.

One opportunity being explored is the Desert Discovery Center.

Currently, the feasibility of the DDC is merely being studied.  An architect will be hired to create a conceptual site plan.  Additionally, an operations and business plan is in the works along with program development.  The results of this process are not expected to be presented until August of 2017.  However, during the interim, citizens have been invited to offer their input.  In fact, two public outreach sessions happened last week.

Unfortunately, there are people trying to make the DDC a political issue.  As a consequence, there is considerable misinformation that is very misleading.  I believe you and your family deserve the facts, not fabrications filtered through those with a political agenda.
