Scottsdale is surrounded by the Phoenix and Paradise Valley in the west, the care-free in the north, the Tempey in the south, and the Fountain Hills and the Pima Maricopa Indian Society in the east.
There lived a Hohokum in Scottsdale. From 800 to 1400 in the Christian era, this ancient civilization was engaged in agriculture and built irrigation channels.
Before the Europeans began to colonize, there was a Pima community called Basai Subasoni. Even in the 20th century, there were Pima who lived in their old homes. For instance, until the late 1960s, there were people who still lived in traditional houses in the southeast corner of the Indian Bend and Hayden roads. But now all the Pima have either been fanned for their development or moved to Scottsdale, mainly to the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Society of South Scottsdale, or to other new homes.
The heritage of the Hohokum people is that they built a canal of more than 125 miles (200 km) to obtain water for agriculture. The remains of this ancient irrigation system were adopted and improved by the first Englishman to claim ownership of the valley of the Sun when Jack Swinling built the Swining Irrigation Canal Company in 1868. Twenty years later, when Winfield Scott, a military preacher of the United States Army, bought 640 acres (2.6 km2) of land currently in Scottsdale City for a small amount of money of $2.50, the future of Scottsdale turned dramatically higher. The brother of Winfield, George Winfield Scott, became the first resident of the town, and the town was originally called Orange Dale, and was later changed to Scottsdale in 1894.
In 1937, the internationally renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright established 'Winter Camp' at the foot of the McDowell Mountains and built what is now called Talyshin West. Scottsdale and the Phoenix City have been influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright for eternity. Many buildings in this area were designed by this famous architect. Today, the monument of Frank Lloyd Wright stands at North Scottsdale, and there is also a main street that includes the name.
Scottsdale was established as a city in 1951. The city symbol represents a cowboy riding a horse surrounded by 64 stars and was designed by Mrs. Jean Brown Pennington.
In the 1950s and 1970s, several manufacturers of Scottsdale and the Tempo region used trichloroethylene as a solvent in their production and operation processes. In 1981, trichloroethylene began to be found at two drinking wells in Scottsdale, and in 1983, the location of the Indian Bend Wash Super Fund was listed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Priority List. The physical construction of the purification system is expected to be completed in 2006, and it will take five years to purify the soil and thirty years to purify the underground water.
It started in the area where real estate development is an old town and moved south. Scottsdale, west of which was connected with Phoenix, and east of which was connected with the Indian settlement, grew into a slender frame, and stopped at Tempo in the south, and turned into a large private ranch called McCormick Ranch in the north. The Indian Bend Wash, which had little water flow, divided the city in the longitudinal direction, and carried the so-called "1999 flood", which is usually considered to be a heavy rainfall with very few dry river beds, into the Salt River. Most of Scottsdale was inhabited by suburban residents of the lower middle class, and there was no money to build a bridge over a usually dry river, which had no water flow, and even the main road went down to the riverbed and up to the opposite bank. In the 1960s, when the floods broke out once in 1999, water flowed several times.
The Indian Bend Wash was often washed away in the late 1960s, so the federal budget was allocated, and the Army Headquarters was built with cement as a large canal, and a bridge was built over it, forming a wide canal similar to the rainwater drainage in Los Angeles, but similar to the drainage in Los Angeles. Under the federal flood law, the federal government is required to rebuild every flood. However, it was thought that grass could be as effective as the cement canal, and a referendum was held on whether to use the federal budget allocated to build a series of parks and golf courses at the bottom of the Indian Bend Wash instead of the cement canal. The park and the golf course were designed to allow almost all children in the city to enjoy their bicycles, and the nearby homes and communal residences were thought to be about to be inhabited by retired people, because the Indian Bend Wash was a narrow and long division of the city.
However, the engineers preferred the canal in the right way, and the idea that the overflowing water would flow into the grassland did not attempt to increase the maintenance costs because there was a possibility that the grassland would flow into the water and the necessity to clear the mud after the flood would become necessary. The Cement Canal could raise the consumption tax, which was unnecessary, and at that time, it was controversial, but citizens chose to build a series of parks and golf courses at the bottom of the Indian Bend Wash. This movement was considered to be bold in a city that was not well off at that time. The park and the golf course made the banks high and the rest a meadow, a pond, and a stream to minimize the damage caused by the overflowing water. The system functions like a flood control channel and continues to maintain parks and golf courses. Since mass production of heat pump air conditioners ended in the 1950s following the time of the park and the golf course, Scottsdale became a city in which family members and retired people want to move, and it was enough to do so. At that time, the city was still relatively poor, but they spent money in the park and built the El Dorado Public Pool on one side of the bank of the wash, and used up the federal budget for the bridge across the wash. However, they were able to build apartment houses along the newly narrowed west border, and finally, the bridge was built several years later with tax on new land.
The city of Scottsdale used up all the money in the park, so the central district, which was directly connected to the east of the central shopping district, along the Scottsdale Road, was declining and the old wooden houses, which had been abandoned by the early 1970s, and so on, had been replaced. Soon after the park was built, however, Mizu McCormick, the owner of the McCormick Ranch, died, and instead of leaving the ranch almost entirely bare, began to develop the McCormick Ranch and the Scottsdale Ranch area into a house and business park, and tax revenue began to flow into the city. As the status of the city increased in the newly-made parks and golf courses, the land developers could upgrade their houses to the Macomick Ranch and the Scottsdale Ranch, which spread to the north, and spread to the east, and continued to expand. The new rich who quickly filled these expensive houses made jokes and words of the nicknames "Snottsdale" and "Snobsdale." Still, the city's tax revenues, which were derived from the development of the Macomick Ranch, were used to acquire the devastated area adjacent to the Old Town by using the land storage rights, and in exchange for the destruction of the wooden houses that had not been burned down by the destructors, entertainment centers and restaurants were built. High-class restaurants owned by local people who had been away from the central area due to their difficulties were invited to the first tenant to enter the restaurant area if they stayed in the area during difficult times, and when entertainment centers and restaurants opened in the mid-1970s, they became a new feature of the city.
When Phoenix City saw the small city Scottsdale, annexed the north and south areas, it annexed the land, which was several miles long, six feet wide (1.8 meters), just west of the McCormick Ranch, to the north of the city, and extended the boundary of the west for miles. Since the city's service was required for the annexed land, the Phoenix annexed the parts at a low cost, simply because it was six feet wide, and the annexation effectively restrained the expansion of Scottsdale.
The City of Scottsdale was seen as an innovative way of thinking. What puzzled many companies was the establishment of the Advertising Signage Ordinance and the regulation of the size and height of outdoor signage. The city's argument was that it could easily lead to traffic accidents because it could stretch its head to see the high signs and then protect the safety of the residents. At that time, this ordinance was highly controversial and was disputed to the Supreme Court of the United States, but now such an ordinance became a matter of course. They also outsourced fire stations that had not been realized despite the privatization of city hall businesses. The company that received the contract painted the fire engine in bright yellow for fear that it would be a lawsuit if the fire engine red color was used in other cities in the United States. Furthermore, the robot arm is attached to the garbage collecting vehicle at first, and the worker is used as a substitute for throwing the garbage into the uncovered trailer pulled by the truck. There was only one operator sitting on the air-conditioned truck.
Scottsdale has grown from 2,000 to 240,410, based on an estimate from 2007, when the city system was established in 1951. It is the sixth largest city in the state in population. Scottsdale's standard of living is said to be high, and in 1993 at the Mayors' Conference of the United States, the title "The Most Livable City" was severely criticized in the state for its high cost of living. A large part of the tax revenue is obtained from tourism, and it is always ranked as one of the major destinations for golf and resort in the world. The Phoenix Open, held at the Tournament Players Club, is known for its large audience among the PGA Tour.
Scottsdale City is located on the northern edge of the Sonora Desert, in the Salt River Basin, or "Valley of the Sun." East and northeast of Scottsdale are the McDowell Mountains. West is Phoenix City and Paradise Valley Town, south is Tempy, east is Fountain Hills.
According to the National Census Bureau, the total area of the city is 184.4 square miles (477.7 km2), of which the land is 184.2 square miles (477.1 km2), the water surface is 0.2 square miles (0.6 km 2), and the water area is 0.12%.
The climate of Scottsdale is desert. Winter is mild and summer is very hot. The record minimum temperature in the city was 19 degrees F (-7 degrees C) on February 20, 1955, and the record maximum temperature was 119 degrees F (48 degrees C) on June 26, 1970 and August 2, 1972.

Scottsdale can be divided into four regions. That is, South Scottsdale (from the Macerips Road to the Tomas Road to the north), Old Town Scottsdale (central town), Central Scottsdale (also called "Sea Coryda", from Chaparral Road to the north to Sea Boulevard), and North Scottsdale. Scottsdale's real estate market is the highest in the United States. In 2005, Scottsdale and Paradise Valley were among the 10 National Cities for the sale of luxury housing, and all eight other cities were in California. Paradise Valley ranked ninth with $637 million and Scottsdale ranked tenth with $594 million.
South Scottsdale has been said to be an area of Scottsdale's working class, although there have been some differences over the years, but today it is transformed into a dynamic inner city. The area also has a major night life, which is the center of art among the Phoenix metropolitan areas. The median selling of used houses is $291,500, lower than North Scottsdale at $667,450. Part of the McDowell Road in South Scottsdale, also called "Motor Mile," was lined with 31 car dealers along the road. This is the only one-mile U.S. for the most profitable car, with a consumption tax of over $10 million a year at one point. In recent years, many of these dealers have left the city, leaving six shops alone in 2008. South Scottsdale will soon have a new research center for Arizona State University called "Sky Song." This development will attract the research and development department of many international companies.
Old Town Scottsdale is a district with many streets and old style shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and western galleries reminiscent of the old cowboy days. The main cultural district is also located in this area, and there is the highest-class Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall, which is among the 20 best shopping malls in the United States. The area is now being reconstructed, and new housing complexes and hotels are under construction.
They came to be called Sea Corrida by approaching Sea Boulevard running east-west. The houses in this area were built in the 1970s in general. The property market in Cee Corrida increased in the 1990s and the whole metropolitan area of Phoenix Mesa Scottsdale, which saw a 38.4% rise in the mid-2000s, the country's largest producer market, showing a particularly strong performance. There are many communities in the area that remain in the most ambitious residential area of the metropolitan area, such as gay lunch and macomric lunch. Most of the Scottsdale Road in Sea Coryda is nicknamed "Resort Coryda" because there are so many resorts. The second Ritz-Carlton Hotel in the Phoenix metropolitan area will be built along the Coryda.
As North Scottsdale was historically the least building area, it is currently the most actively developed area. Housing in the area is the most expensive in the county, and many are over $5 million. In this area, the border is rapidly spreading east and west, and it includes the McDowell Mountains. The housing boom in North Scottsdale is the second largest urban area to create jobs in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area, and is attributed to the rapid growth of "Scottsdale Air Park," which is estimated to be number one by 2010. Scottsdale Air Park employs 55.000 or more companies, with office space of 23 million square feet (2.1 km 2) and is expected to increase employment of more than 3,000 people a year. The park is home to a number of key companies or headquartered in the area, including Axa, GE Capital, DHL, discount tire companies, Fidelity Investments, JDA Software and Vanguard Group.

art and culture
Scottsdale is also known for its high quality of art and culture from within and outside the country. Although it is generally a high-class, wealthy nature and product, the local art society remains very diversified. Scottsdale, who is proud to be the capital of art and culture in the southwestern part of the country (which, in this brag, competes with Santa Fe, New Mexico), has recently become a mecca that is widely and respected in modern and contemporary art. In 2005, the annual "Scottsdale Art Festival" was ranked number one for such events in the United States by "American Style Magazine."

The gallery and studio are the most famous art works with the theme of the West and Indians, but the tendency to focus on contemporary art became dominant over the past 20 years. This is a visible element of the many modern art galleries opened along the Marshall Way Art District and the Contemporary Art Museum of Scottsdale, which opened in 1999. Both are in the center of the city.
The Scottsdale Civic Center Mall is located in the Old Town area, a large area of tourists, and houses two theaters, the Scottsdale Art Center and the Scottsdale Museum of History, as well as the recently established Museum of Contemporary Art, Scottsdale.

Scottsdale, which the New York Times said as one of the "most hippie and hapning" places in the country, is where you can find the various high-class nightclubs, restaurants, hotels, lounges and bars that attract people. In particular, these numbers have increased over the past 10 years, and they have become popular among 'younger and fashion-conscious customers.' It is obvious that the number of hotels that opened in the central city and put emphasis on style has increased due to the same trend to entertain night-life customers.

The characteristic City Hall of Scottsdale was designed by the architect Benny Gonzalez in 1968 and the inner Kiba (originally the Pueblo altar) was designed to be used for community gatherings.
The Arizona State Route 101, known as the Loop Route 101, is used locally to connect Scottsdale to the cities in the Phoenix metropolitan area, Arizona, and beyond, all of which are conveniently located on high rise roads.
The speed limit for many streets in Loop 101 and the city has been regulated since February 2007 and is regulated by the radar photographic system.
North Scottsdale in the city has a single runway Scottsdale Civic Airport (airport code IATA:SDL, ICAO:KDSL). It has more than 500 flights a day, and it is one of the most common single-runway airports in the United States. There are a few trains that arrive at and depart from the station for sightseeing or commuting, but almost all trains are used by the company or the general air.
The Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (airport code IATA:PHX, ICAO:KPHX) in Phoenix is mainly available for commercial flights.
Public bus services in the Phoenix metropolitan area are operated by Valley Metro, and they operate on a regular basis in the city.
Scottsdale City runs a bus called "Scottsdale Trolley" around the city. Public transportation is free of charge using a bus modeled after this trolley. Currently, there are two loop-line routes, each called a downtown trolley and a neighbor food trolley. These can be transferred at the central Roma Station junction.
The downtown Trolley raced its downtown area and the Neighbor Hood Trolley raced around the South Scottsdale area from its central area to connect the Roosevelt and Scottsdale Road to the Tenppey Orbit free public circuit in Tempey City. From there you can go to Tempy City, Arizona State University Main Campus, and Tempy Central Town, or Mill Avenue.
In December 2007, Scottsdale joined the METRO Board, which runs a light rail connecting neighboring cities such as Phoenix, Tempo and Mesa. A plan to extend the light rail to Scottsdale was studied in 2001 and has been studied for a while since then. The city's transportation master plan considers the Scottsdale Road as a high capacity corridor of the city and allows light rails, modern streetcars, or bus rapid trains.
Scottsdale's education is mainly run by the United School District of Scottsdale. Only a few areas in the city belong to the Cave Creek Integrated Education School District, Paradise Valley Integrated Education School District, Phoenix Integrated High School District, Tempo Integrated High School District, and Vals Elementary School District in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
Scottsdale has five schools: Arcadia High School, Chaparral High School, Coronado High School, Desert Mountain High School and Sagaro High School.
The Scottsdale Community College is a higher education facility in the city, but it is actually in the Indian Settlement of the Pima-Maricopa River. Many students go to Arizona State University in Tempey. Pen Foster College, a remote education college, has its headquarters in Scottsdale.
Scottsdale also has an Arizona International School, a non-profit language intensive school where children can be taught in foreign languages (French and Spanish).
There are four branches of the Scottsdale Public Library System. The fifth branch is now under construction.
