COMMUNITY PROFILE – Northeast Valley & Scottsdale

The Northeast Valley includes the sophisticated City of Scottsdale, the Town of Paradise Valley, the “sister” cities of Carefree and Cave Creek, and the Town of Fountain Hills. Perhaps more than any other area in the Valley, the Northeast reflects the epitome of year-round resort living and the “good life” in distinctive Southwestern style. Many country club and golf course communities showcase million-dollar manors in elegant residential developments that command breathtaking views of mountain, desert, and city lights. At the same time, family-oriented neighborhoods surround libraries, parks, schools, and shopping for a convenient urban lifestyle.

Within the Northeast Valley, the cities of Phoenix and Scottsdale dominate the economy and provide the employment base. Although the other communities enjoy a degree of commercial and retail activity, as well as contribute outstanding restaurants and luxurious resorts, they primarily serve as residential havens. The northeastern corner of Phoenix is well-known for its vast array of retail development, radiating in all directions from the focal point of Paradise Valley Mall. Shopping plazas combine with service-oriented businesses, office parks, and professional buildings.

Neighboring Scottsdale takes the lead in industrial development as well as corporate and regional headquarters and high-tech companies. Accommodating business and recreational aircraft, Scottsdale Airport is the busiest corporate jet airport in Arizona. Scottsdale also excels in revenue generated by tourism, welcoming millions of visitors to award-winning resorts and posh shopping districts. Tourism also plays a leading role in the Cave Creek and Carefree economies, reinforcing the strong ties between these “recreational” sister communities.

Along with the explosion of population in the rapidly expanding Northeast Valley came freeways that provide high-speed connections to other Valley destinations. The Piestewa Peak Parkway or SR51 provides quick access to Interstate 10, Loop 202 to the East Valley, and to downtown Phoenix. The addition of Loop 101 provides a convenient thoroughfare through the Northeast Valley, linking the area to points west, east, and south. A public bus system combines with Dial-A-Ride and ridesharing programs for transit alternatives.
