Earlier this year, my colleagues and I approved funding to expand the city's public Wi-Fi network to provide free, extended coverage at city facilities. This coverage will go beyond the buildings into the parking lots and public areas and will be available daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The additional internet access for low income families will not only help parents with online medical appointments but will also allow their children the same schooling opportunity as those who already have reliable access. <br><br>I am very proud of the city staff who worked tirelessly this summer to make this possible, and hope this service provides some relief to families. I will continue to work with staff to expand Wi-Fi services and provide additional resources to families and residents."<br><br><strong>City of Phoenix facilities offering free Wi-Fi in District 7 are:</strong><br>Desert West Senior Center--6501 W.

DiCiccio and Nowakowski Present Plan for Relocation of Human Services Campushttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-7/1523City Council District 79/24/2020 12:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1523/Newsroom_Council_News_07.jpgDiCiccio and Nowakowski Present Plan for Relocation of Human Services Campus<div class="ExternalClassFB103D0561CF459A8D4695F52D246D01"><html>​There is a current push to expand the Homeless Services Campus in downtown Phoenix. Many of the neighborhoods surrounding the campus - already under siege - are fighting to prevent this due to the extraordinary impacts of so many chronic street-homeless being concentrated in their neighborhood. They're right, but so are homeless advocates who say we need more shelter and low-income housing options.<br><br>Rather than expand the campus, and thereby increase the impacts on neighborhoods that are already bearing the brunt of our homeless crisis, we respectfully urge our colleagues, along with state, county, and city officials from throughout Arizona, to consider a better solution: St. Luke's.<br><br>We will never again have an opportunity to acquire a fully built, large scale hospital to serve the needs of our homeless population. St. Luke's has room to support the expansion of shelter and service options for our homeless, in an area with easy access to mass transit, and one that is significantly more isolated from any surrounding neighborhoods.<br><br>Relocating the Human Services Campus to St. Luke's will provide a better environment to assist our homeless population AND help protect our neighbors and neighborhoods. Further, relocating the Campus from the current location would allow for the sale of this extremely valuable piece of property – monies from which could be used to create new shelter and housing options throughout the Valley.<br><br>The City of Phoenix alone does not have the resources to accomplish this plan, but Phoenix should not have to stand alone. We must take a regional approach in order to resolve this issue. The State of Arizona, Maricopa County, and our other surrounding valley cities need to step up as well – and they should. Homelessness and housing insecurity affect us all, and everyone needs to have a hand in addressing these issues. It cannot solely weigh on Phoenix. <br><br>Accordingly, we are asking elected officials throughout the State of Arizona to support our plan to relocate Phoenix's Human Services Campus to the former St. Luke's hospital location, and seek to allocate any and all resources necessary to provide these critical services to the most vulnerable among us, while also protecting our neighbors and neighborhoods.​<br><br>Sincerely,<br><br><img src="/district6site/MediaAssets/DiCiccioSignature.png" style="margin:5px;width:201px;height:57px;" />         <img src="/district6site/MediaAssets/CouncilmanNowakowski_Signature.png" style="margin:5px;width:234px;height:43px;" /><br>Councilman Sal DiCiccio                                          Councilman Michael Nowakowski<br>Phoenix Council District 6                            ​           Phoenix Council District 7<br><span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span>​<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7

Violence is never the answer. <br><br>In light of today's incident, and other incidents around the country, effective immediately, Phoenix Police will have two officers patrolling together at all times. I stand with Chief Williams on this decision, to ensure our brave officers have proper back-up. <br><br>I am also thankful that the court security officer who was shot at, was not seriously injured. He is in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery."​<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7
