In-person voting under way for March 13 Scottsdale Special Election

SCOTTSDALE – Registered voters can cast a ballot for the March 13 Special Election in-person at Scottsdale City Hall, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd. Voting is available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, through Friday, March 9. Voters will consider a General Plan update, a franchise agreement and seven City Charter amendments in the election.

• The General Plan update guides development and growth in the city for the next 10 to 20 years. Cities and towns are typically required to update their plans every 10 years.

• The franchise agreement, if approved by voters, would allow Southwest Gas to continue using the city's rights of way for pipelines and equipment.

• Seven charter amendments are carryovers from 2010 and did not make it on the 2010 ballot. The amendments would seek to change or clarify the charter, which is the document that defines the city's roles and powers.
