PHOENIX – Looking for information about Scottsdale’s multimillion-dollar bond election later this year?

The Northeast Valley suburb recently unveiled an upgraded website featuring an easy-to-remember address, Scottsdale.Vote, and everything voters need to know about the Nov. 5 election.

A press release says the page is designed for simple navigation plus compatibility with cellphones and tablet devices.

The upcoming election will be the first held in Scottsdale without polling places.

All voters registered by Oct. 7 will receive their ballots, with postage-paid return envelopes, in the mail. Ballots, with information pamphlets, will be sent out starting Oct. 9.

Completed ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Election Day. They can be mailed or dropped off at one of the city’s two ballot centers, 4201 N. Hayden Road and 8950 E. Pinnacle Peak Road, starting Oct. 28.

Voters will decide the fate of three bonds totaling $319 million to be used for parks, recreation and senior services; community spaces and infrastructure; and public safety and technology.

The funding is earmarked for 58 projects, including a splash pad at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park, a dog park to Thompson Peak Park, a 200-space parking lot near Scottsdale Stadium, a new fire station at 90th Street and Via Linda and a variety of roadway and pedestrian improvements.

The city estimates that the average annual property tax rate impact, if all the bonds are approved, would be $0.2877 per $100 of assessed valuation. The owner of home at Scottsdale’s median value, $375,000, would pay an additional $107.89 per year.
