Consistent land use planning
and protecting our unique quality of life.

Scottsdale citizens deserve the respect of city planners and investment developers. Proposed developments should be fully transparent, constructively announced/noticed to the widest affected community and should provide opportunity for public input that could improve the quality of the project. Citizens expect preservation of a predictable quality of life not compromised by changes to current land use designations or design standards that are inappropriate with, or incompatible to, the surrounding area. Growth and change can be positive for our city, but only with decisions that are sensitive to the current quality of life for existing residents, businesses, and neighborhoods.

COGS is a “YES” group for appropriate and proposed quality projects throughout our city. We encourage zoning attorneys and project representatives to conference with us at their Pre-Application stage; they will find COGS is a valuable resource in outreach to community leaders.
