The Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS (SAAR) has endorsed three Scottsdale bond measures on the November 2019 ballot joining a diverse coalition of community backers. SAAR has more than 9,000 active members and affiliates. It is the largest trade organization in the Northeast Valley.
The Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS supports Question 1, 2 and 3. Those three measures ask Scottsdale voters to invest in 58 projects totaling $319 million across the city. The bonds make important and overdue infrastructure repairs, invest in public safety improvements and build new parks and recreation facilities.
The For The Best Scottsdale Campaign: Vote Yes on Questions 1, 2 and 3 welcomes the endorsement and support for the bonds from the Scottsdale Area Association of REALTORS. SAAR and its members are important leaders in the Scottsdale community.
SAAR joins a community wide coalition backing all three bond measures including the Scottsdale Area Chamber of Commerce, Scottsdale Fire Fighters Association, the Police Officers Association of Scottsdale (POSA), The Thunderbirds and Scottsdale Charros.
Scottsdale voters have not approved a major bond package since 2000. The list of projects in the 2019 bond measures were determined through an extensive public input process and numerous public meetings. The bonds were put on the November 2019 ballot by a unanimous Mayor and Scottsdale City Council. Mayor Jim Lane and the entire Scottsdale City Council also support the bonds. The measures include expanding senior centers, installing bulletproof glass at police stations and needed improvements at Civic Center Plaza.
