Ah a city of the future! I want to be able to walk/bike or use public transit to most places. I want to wake up early for a morning run in the park, get a morning coffee at a local coffee shop on the way back, and do other things urbanies do. Walk to dinner/show, walk to basketball or baseball game. Be able to get everything I want without geting behind the wheel.

I voted for Scottsdale. To be more specific, I would live near the north part of the greenbelt (for biking).

That "city of the future" already exists. It's called manhattan.

I'd prefer to stay in Phoenix. No need for me to uproot everything in my life for New York when I can just move downtown.

I believe that can happen in Phoenix Moderator cut: snip
I'd vote for Arcadia, but it's not even on the list.

Interesting poll results!

Surprised only 2 people would live in Carefree and 10 would want to live in Phoenix over FH, PV, or Scottsdale...interesting.

I'm with you! If money was no object...there are many, many places better to live than in AZ! That's a no brainer!
