The founders of Scottsdale BELIEVE met each other through attending meetings of the City of Scottsdale Environmental Quality Advisory Board. At the meetings, we learned about our city’s pest management operations. We also learned about some of the techniques other cities have adopted in their quest for safer methods of maintaining public lands. 

We came to realize that to effect significant change in Scottsdale, we would have to do more than write our city council, call city employees, and attend these meetings. We also came to realize we weren’t alone, that many Scottsdale residents feel as we do. Drawn together by our shared concern about the use of herbicides and other pesticides in our beautiful city, we decided to do something about it.

After researching, sharing ideas, and speaking with others in our community, we launched a petition drive to provide a vehicle for Scottsdale’s voices to speak up and be heard. Our petition drive is a local citizen-driven, all-volunteer, self-funded effort. We are “just” Scottsdale citizens who feel strongly about ensuring our city provides services that are safe for people, pets, flora and fauna. Please join us!
