The exhibit explores the layers, complications, and duality of juxtaposing contemporary O'Odham with traditional narratives and ancestral ties to the Phoenix basin and throughout the Sonoran Desert. This exhibit was generously funded by the Friends of Pueblo Grande Museum. Thomas 'Breeze' Marcus has been spray-painting large-scale murals throughout the City of Phoenix for nearly three decades. He is also a studio painter and has done work for various museum collections and exhibits throughout the country. Marcus' art is directly inspired by graffiti, public art, contemporary Native issues, and his Akimel and Tohono O'Odham heritage. By finding and creating parallels in his artwork, Marcus carries on a long lineage of creative and innovative history in the Phoenix area. When Rez Dogs Howl will be on display at Pueblo Grande Museum from July 7, 2022 to May 14, 2023. The public is invited to attend a free opening exhibit reception from 6 – 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 7 at Pueblo Grande Museum .

City of Phoenix Adds Paid Parental Leave to Many Employee Benefitshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/human-resources/2404Human Resources7/1/2022 5:35:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2404/Parental Leave Collage.jpgCity of Phoenix Adds Paid Parental Leave to Many Employee Benefits<div class="ExternalClass735D0FDF08DC4B3A8359807F5EBB6999"><html> <p> Beginning October 1, the City of Phoenix will provide eligible employees up to 480 hours (12 weeks) of paid leave for the birth, adoption or foster care placement of a child during a 12-month period. The new parental leave benefit was unanimously approved by City Council today, and solidifies Phoenix as a top employer in the region. 480 hours is among the most generous parental leave packages offered by any local government agency.</p> <p>“The working world has changed dramatically, and we are focused on meeting the needs of today's parents. The new, additional leave is extremely flexible to meet varying challenges that arise when a new child comes into the family," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This new benefit will help the City stay competitive and able to attract the best employees to serve Phoenix's residents."</p> <p>The change is intended to allow the City to maintain its competitive edge to recruit and retain a highly skilled and productive workforce while also providing working parents and caregivers greater flexibility in balancing their work and family commitments.</p> <p>“Our employees are our most valuable assets," said Phoenix City Manager Jeff Barton. “Adding parental leave to the many benefits offered by the City demonstrates our investment in them, which in turn, is an investment in our community."<br></p> <p>The City of Phoenix is actively recruiting for many essential jobs including police officers, dispatchers, solid waste and street maintenance workers, mechanics, customer service representatives, administrative professionals, accountants and more. Whether you're an experienced professional or just starting your career, working in public service offers many rewards.

Phoenix Looking for Community Input at GO Bond Committee Meetingshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/budget-and-research/2402Budget & Research7/1/2022 12:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2402/Phoenix-Skyline-with-Crane-in-Background.jpgPhoenix Looking for Community Input at GO Bond Committee Meetings<div class="ExternalClass2711FC69F2244C9182870D8D4241A10B"><html> <p> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">On June 7, 2022, </span> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">the Mayor and City Council approved moving forward with a proposed General Obligation (GO) Bond program of $500 million</span> <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">. GO Bond programs help to fund critical infrastructure and rehabilitation needs of City facilities such as parks, libraries, fire and police stations, affordable housing, streets, and storm drains. GO Bond Programs require City Council and voter approval.</span> </p> <p> <strong>What is a General Obligation Bond?</strong> </p> <p>General obligation (GO) bonds are municipal bonds which provide a way for local governments to finance large capital improvements. A bond program includes both the authority to issue bonds and a listing of the purposes for which the funds may be used. General Obligation Bond Programs, such as the City of Phoenix's Bond Program, require voter approval. The City of Phoenix is the fifth largest City in the country and has not had a GO Bond Program since 2006.</p> <p>The City Council appointed a citizen's GO Bond Committee on June 1, 2022, to evaluate and prioritize <a target="_blank" href="/bond/reports-presentations">proposed projects</a> identified in the Capital Needs Study, and to hear from residents what they would like to see in the next GO Bond Program. In addition to an Executive Committee, there are eight subcommittees: Arts & Culture, Economic Development and Education, Environment & Sustainability, Housing, Human Services & Homelessness, Neighborhoods & City Services, Parks & Recreation, Public Safety, and Streets & Storm Drainage. </p> <p>Subcommittees will receive presentations about proposed projects from City departments, hear from the public, then rank the projects that will be recommended to the Executive Committee. The Executive Committee is charged with making recommendations to be considered by City Council. The City Council will then decide if a GO Bond Program will go to the voters. If approved by Council, voters will ultimately choose whether or not to adopt the GO Bond Program, in November 2023.</p> <p>Committee meetings will take place between August 2022 and December 2022 and will be open to the public for comment. The Executive Committee will meet for the first time on August 8, 2022, then the first subcommittee meeting will take place on August 12, 2022.  More information on committee meetings and how residents can participate is available online at Phoenix.gov/bond. </p> <p> <strong>What type of projects will be proposed?</strong> </p> <p>General Obligation Bonds pay for major capital improvements that serve a public purpose, such as renovating and building new parks and libraries, investing in the Phoenix Housing Plan, the Climate Action Plan, street and storm drainage projects and even public safety infrastructure like a new fire station or police precinct. </p> <p>Money from GO Bonds cannot be used for ongoing operating costs such as administrative expenses and employee salaries. </p> <p> <strong>Does the proposed 2023 GO Bond Program anticipate an increase in secondary property tax rates?</strong> </p> <p>No. The GO Bond Program does not include a planned increase in the City's secondary property tax rate, which is used to calculate secondary property tax revenues dedicated to paying the debt service on GO Bonds. This means that future property tax revenues at the existing secondary property tax rate are projected to be sufficient to repay the bonds, absent unanticipated legislative and/or economic changes. </p> <p> <strong>How to share your Input</strong> </p> <p>Community input is encouraged at the City's <a target="_blank" href="/bond/meetings">GO Bond Committee meeting​</a>s. Anyone interested in speaking can sign up online to speak, or attend in person, at one of our hybrid, in-person and virtual, meetings. </p> <p>Residents can also engage with the City on social media by using the #GOPHX2023, or by using the interactive GOPHXTOOL, an online tool that allows residents to tell the GO Bond Committee which projects they would like to see recommended to City Council. Residents may also call or submit comments electronically.</p> <p>For more information, please visit <a target="_blank" href="/bond">phoenix.gov/bond</a> or call (602) 262-3111.​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/budgetNewsbudget-and-research

The City of Phoenix is thrilled to welcome the NFL and its fans to the heart of downtown Phoenix. <br> <br> Free to the public, this multi-day outdoor festival will include an immersive fan experience with live music, entertainment, local cuisine, and multicultural celebrations.  <br> <br> “Downtown Phoenix has changed a lot since the last big game. We look forward to visitors experiencing the growth of business, restaurants, arts, entertainment, and our massively improved transportation," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This festival builds on the fan experience which will showcase our city to thousands of people. They'll discover why we are the fastest growing big city in America." <br> <br> “Our newly upgraded Margaret T. Hance Park will be the perfect green pocket of our downtown core to kick off 2023 Super Bowl festivities," District 7 Councilwoman Yassamin Ansari said. “Thousands of families and visitors will get to enjoy a state-of-the-art playground and desert oasis, all while getting a taste of our delicious local cuisine, diverse cultures and community."<br><br> “We are eager to welcome the diverse crowd of football fans to one of the City's most eye-catching parks while showcasing the best in entertainment and culture Phoenix has to offer," said Phoenix Parks and Recreation Director Cynthia Aguilar. “Phoenix Parks is ready to help provide an unforgettable fan experience."  <br> <br> Margaret T.
