Hidden Hills Meetings

Susan Conklu from the City of Scottsdale sent me and several others this memo about two upcoming meetings to decide the fate of our access to Hidden Hills. -- Jack Quinn

Hi Jack,

A public open house has been scheduled to discuss temporarily suspending the use of the public bicycle and non-motorized easement to bicyclists on 145th Way, a private street in Hidden Hills, until a connection in Fountain Hills is built. 

The open house is scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 22 at Via Linda Senior Center, 10440 E. Via Linda. 

This request is being considered to address concerns related to the use of a public easement located in a private, gated community.  This action would have no impact on the Sunrise Trailhead or the trail in the wash to the east of 145th Way.  It would not impact pedestrian access on the sidewalk along 145th Way.

Feedback gathered from this open house will be compiled and presented at the next Trails Subcommittee meeting at 9 a.m. Thursday, October 6 at the Public Safety Building (Arizona Room) at 8401 E Indian School Road.

The contacts for this project are Reed Kempton, Principal Transportation Planner, via email to or 480-312-7630 and Susan Conklu, Transportation Planner, at or at 480-312-2308.

Thank you,
Susan Conklu, Transportation Planner
