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

Scottsdale citizens deserve respect from city planners and developers.
Growth and change can benefit our city, but only with decisions that respect the current quality of life for residents, businesses, and neighborhoods.

  • Citizens expect:
    • Preservation of a predictable quality of life
    • Protection from inappropriate or incompatible changes to land use and design standards
  • Proposed developments should:
    • Be fully transparent
    • Be constructively announced to the widest affected community
    • Provide opportunities for public input to enhance the project

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.
