The Salt River Valley and Maricopa Canals were the first irrigation canals excavated in the Valley since ancient times and are significant in the development of what would become modern Phoenix. The canals were abandoned, infilled, and mostly forgotten by the mid-20 th Century, but their precise locations across the city can still be found using Google Earth, geographic information technology, publicly available data, and a keen eye. This presentation will be led by Dan Garcia, who is Salt River Project's Senior Cultural Resource Manager.​

Phoenix Police Sergeant Rights a Wrong 60 Years Laterhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/986Police 2/20/2020 8:12:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/986/Newsroom_Cole_Candace_3.jpgPhoenix Police Sergeant Rights a Wrong 60 Years Later<div class="ExternalClass0B32639C5B4E4653B316A02C6C3D6683"><html>​It was a hot Phoenix night last August when Patrol Sergeant Vince Cole first met Candace Ramsey.<br><br>It wasn't the crime report he was taking from her that caught his attention, but a framed Navajo Nation Police Patch.<br><br>As Sgt. Cole asked Candace about the patch, she beamed with pride for the man who wore that patch.  Her grandfather Gordon James was a Sergeant with the Navajo Nation Department of Public Safety more than 60 years ago.  She shared that her grandfather was killed in the line of duty. <br><br>As a member of the Phoenix Police Honor Guard, Sgt. Cole asked Candace if she had gone to Washington DC to see her grandfather's name etched on the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial.  “His name is not on that wall," Candace said sadly. That's when Sgt. Cole knew he wanted to make that wrong right. <br><br>He got back to the office and put on his historian hat.  His research revealed James was a Korean War Veteran prior to becoming a police officer with the Navajo Nation Public Safety. On August 30, 1960 Sergeant James lost his life in the line of duty, killed by a drunk driver.<img src="/policesite/MediaAssets/Untitled%20design%20(1).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:341px;vertical-align:auto;float:right;" /><br><br>Sgt. Cole reached out to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Foundation.  After 6 months of work, on January 29, 2020, the Foundation informed Candace and her family that Sgt. Gordon C. James would be added to the memorial wall in D.C. on May 13, 2020 during the Annual Candlelight Vigil. <br><br>“I am so proud of my grandfather, it is such a great honor," Candace said.  <br><br>A chance meeting that united two law enforcement families together so one man's heroic actions will never be forgotten.<br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeNewspolice

And don't worry if you aren't familiar with the improvements - The Phoenix Public Transit and Street Transportation departments have compiled an <a href="/streetssite/Documents/2019_T2050_Progress_Report_3_ENGLISH.pdf" target="_blank">annual progress report </a>to showcase the various achievements made so far. The highly visual report exemplifies the city's continued commitment to ensuring accountability, transparency and tracking measurable goals in the delivery of T2050 programs and projects. </p> <p> <br>The report also provides detailed financial information on everything related to street and transportation improvements in an easy-to-navigate format. <br><br>Progress highlighted in Public Transit includes increased bus service every 30 minutes on all bus routes, 15-minute frequency on most Phoenix core routes, new bus shelters, a new 50th Street light rail station and added RAPID service throughout Phoenix. <br><br>The T2050 Street Transportation Department progress includes repaving more than 400 miles of city streets, preservation treatments on 1,400 miles of city and neighborhood streets, adding more than 141 miles of new bicycle lanes and 27 miles of new sidewalks and replacing 1,450 street lights and nearly 2,900 illuminated street signs. <br><br>Feedback from our residents and riders is a critical part of the process, so make sure to fill it out this survey before February 28. <br><br>The T2050 complete report is available on the program progress webpage, <a href="https://www.t2050.org/" target="_blank">T2050.org</a>. The <a href="https://www.westgroupresearch.com/Phoenix2050" target="_blank">T2050 online survey is available here</a>.<br><br>About Transportation 2050: In Aug. 2015, Phoenix voters approved Transportation 2050 (T2050), a 35-year citywide transportation plan. T2050 is overseen by the Citizens Transportation Commission and includes improved frequency on local bus service, new light rail service and stations and major street improvement projects. Funding for T2050 comes from a 7/10ths of a cent city sales tax that started Jan. 1, 2016. Over the life of the plan, the funds are estimated to generate about $16.7 billion, or more than half of the plan's overall cost. There will be an additional $14.8 billion in federal and county funds, passenger fares and other sources.
