A baby sheep was apparently out on the lamb after escaping an enclosure set up at the Paradise Community Center Park. After a several-hour search, which included finding a coyote and javelina along the way, the lamb was returned to its owners. (Photo courtesy Nancy Keane.)

The Scottsdale City Council is expected to approve a measure that will bring a 29-acre, multi-use sports field complex across the street from McDowell Mountain Ranch closer to a reality. The site is located just behind the Shell Gas Station along the southwest corner of McDowell Mountain Ranch Road and Thompson Peak Parkway. The resolution calls for the adoption of the Municipal Use Master Site Plan for the proposed WestWorld Sports Fields now that the Development Review Board, as well as the Parks and Recreation and Planning commissions, have all approved the project.

The City is also expected to vote on a resolution needed to submit bids to the Arizona State Land Department to purchase separate rights of way and temporary construction easements totaling 66,213 square feet. The parcels are needed for the installation of the sports field facility under construction at the northwest corner of Bell Road and 94th Street. The city has already posted a $240,199 deposit to ASLD but still needs to win an auction to take control of the property that has been valued at $345,725.

The Scottsdale City Council is expected to approve both measures at its 5 p.m. meeting on Sept. 14th at City Hall Kiva Forum.

The water pumped into the wells will come from the City of Scottsdale’s existing water treatment plants.
