Scottsdale plans $40M sports park project, takes public comments
PHOENIX — The city of Scottsdale is moving forward on plans to build a $40 million sports park project and is taking public comments to discuss the next steps.
The two-site project will include 13 full-sized multi-use sports fields and is expected to be ready for use in early 2022.
The project was approved by voters in a 2019 bond election and officially kicked off in April when the Scottsdale City Council hired a design consultant to begin evaluating the proposed field locations.
Those who want to provide input on the plan can do so by filling out an online form by Aug. 31.
The project will acquire land and build up to six fields at Bell Road and 94th Street, site of what will be called the Bell Road Sports Complex. Construction on this part of the project will begin first.
Seven fields will be built at the WestWorld Sports Complex, located at Thompson Peak Parkway and McDowell Mountain Ranch Road.
The complexes will feature parking lots, restrooms and maintenance facilities.
The city anticipates the project will be used for parking for special events such as the Waste Management Phoenix Open and Barrett-Jackson classic car auction.
