(SCOTTSDALE) — The For The Best Scottsdale Campaign: Vote Yes on Questions 1, 2 and 3 will hold a special, community event on October 5th at the Ice Den Scottsdale, thanks to a donation from the facility.
It will take place from Noon to 2 p.m. The event will also feature free food and drinks in the 18 Degrees Neighborhood Grill, an appearance by our campaign mascot Scottsdale Scotty and information about the three bond questions before Scottsdale voters.
Space is limited so please RSVP by contacting Campaign Manager Mary Turner at (928) 242-6991 with number of attendees. The free skate is available for the first 100 people who RSVP. Pre-registration is required.
Questions 1, 2 and 3 make needed infrastructure repairs and community investments in public safety, senior centers, parks and youth sports facilities.
“Among many other benefits the infrastructure improvements on the November ballot create incredible new recreational opportunities for so many Scottsdale families and children. There are few better places than the Ice Den to showcase these benefits. The free event will give Scottsdale residents and families a chance to enjoy skating and fun at the Ice Den while learning about how important Questions 1, 2 and 3 are for Scottsdale’s quality of life and future prosperity,” said Dennis Robbins, co-chair of the For The Best Scottsdale Campaign.
The three bond measures will invest $319 million in 58 projects in all parts of Scottsdale. That includes expanding Cactus Pool, improvements to the Eldorado Pool, Indian School Park and the Scottsdale Tennis Center and building 13 new youth sports field near WestWorld, the geographic center of Scottsdale. Those new fields will help alleviate waiting lists and backlogs for space experienced by youth sports teams and leagues. They will also be available to major Scottsdale events for overflow parking, just as occurs now at various parks and facilities in the city.
The Ice Den supports Questions 1, 2 and 3 and is a part of the diverse community coalition supporting the infrastructure investments. The Coalition of Greater Scottsdale, Scottsdale Charros, The Thunderbirds, Phoenix Rising FC, Barrett-Jackson, Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce, Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS, AARP Arizona, youth sports groups and coaches as well as a unanimous Scottsdale City Council have endorsed all three questions.
“Scottsdale is a great community and we are proud to call it home. We need to make infrastructure repairs and invest in parks, youth sports, public safety and senior centers. Questions 1, 2 and 3 will accomplish that,” said Mike O’Hearn, President of the Ice Den Scottsdale.
