Scottsdale and the Town of Paradise Valley entered into an intergovernmental agreement regarding a parking garage apportioned in both jurisdictions.

According to a city staff report from the Dec. 12 Scottsdale City Council meeting, the city of Scottsdale’s agreement with the Town of Paradise Valley provides the town with “plan review, permitting and inspection services for the underground parking garage servicing the Palmeraie mixed-use development by Five Star Development Resort Communities LLC.”

Since a portion of the Palmeraie development, located on the southwest corner of north Scottsdale and east Indian Bend roads, is in both jurisdictions, the two-level, 424,400 square-foot underground parking garage spans across jurisdictional lines.

While both jurisdictions adopted the same construction codes, the report noted that the city of Scottsdale “has more expertise in permitting and inspecting” that type of project, the report stated.

Hence, all plan review and permit fees shall be paid by Scottsdale’s developer based on the entire underground parking garage, the report stated. Scottsdale will coordinate with Paradise Valley, however, and permits will be issued by Scottsdale upon approval of plans and payment.
