Keep the Park a Public Park-No Primary Use for Great Hearts
Preserve Scottsdale's Open Spaces! Keep the park a public park!
We OPPOSE Great Hearts Academy (“GHA”) building a Sports Complex in DC Ranch, on the land near the SE corner of Pima Road and Union Hills Drive (specifically South of Trailside Vw and West of 91st St).
The reasons we OPPOSE the building of a Sports Complex in DC Ranch are:
1. The Property was deeded by DC Ranch, L.L.C. to the City of Scottsdale in 2003 for no purpose other than a public park, in perpetuity. Scottsdale residents and taxpayers want the City of Scottsdale to keep the Property for its intended use and uphold the deed restrictions.
2. Scottsdale residents and taxpayers, including parents of SUSD students, oppose the Property being developed as a Sports Complex with priority rights given to GHA.
3. Scottsdale residents and taxpayers further oppose the Property being developed by GHA for reasons including, but not limited to, the following:
a) Excessive traffic;
b) Noise and light pollution;
c) Increased crime;
d) Lower property values; and
e) Not maintaining the “dark skies” philosophy of DC Ranch and North Scottsdale.
