100 Year Old City Flag will be on display at Phoenix City Hall 9:00:00 PM Year Old City Flag will be on display at Phoenix City Hall<div class="ExternalClass3BDFE9D342F646ABBF78D7E3ADD269B1"><html> <p>​In 1921 Phoenix was a small city of 48,000 and residents were optimistic about the future. Phoenicians felt they needed a symbol of their prosperity and so the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce conducted a contest to design what would become the official flag of the city of Phoenix. The winning design is a 52 inch by 66 inch rectangle of heavy grade soft blue silk taffeta with an orange fringe. Embroidered in the center is a phoenix bird over a gold flame sunburst background. A white ribbon scroll at the bottom is embroidered with the legend, "City of Phoenix, Arizona". Back in 1921 the flag cost $175.<br></p><p>At the unveiling of the flag in the Phoenix City Hall Atrium, Mayor Kate Gallego said,<br>"Just like the Phoenix Rising, our flag is on display again, reminding us of the history of our great city. It's a time to celebrate the accomplishments of the City of Phoenix. Our history helps us build and move towards our future."</p><p>The City of Phoenix Official Flag is considered a public record and Phoenix City Clerk Denise Archibald is in charge of taking care of it.</p><p>Archibald said, "The City of Phoenix Flag was adopted by ordinance on November 23rd., 1921 and it has been under the care of the city clerk.  We ensure that the flag is kept in a safe and secure environment that's conducive to its preservation and conservation. Now we are here celebrating the 100-year anniversary of this flag. It will be on display at City Hall in the atrium between November 23rd. and the end of December. Then it will come back to the city clerk for safekeeping. I believe next year we will go ahead and try to maintain the flag, as we usually do, and have some conservation efforts completed on it just to make sure that it's always preserved and in a good state."</p><p>Much like the mythical Phoenix Bird, the first official city of Phoenix flag has risen again from the dust of time.</p><p>"I think the flag is beautiful" said City Clerk Denise Archibald. "The history is rich and we're just proud to be able to keep it safe and in good condition and will continue to do so for many years to come. I'm just excited that we have this opportunity to celebrate its 100-year anniversary."<br></p><p><span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br></p> </html></div>
Federal and Local Leaders Celebrate Light Rail Funding Transit11/23/2021 9:00:00 PM and Local Leaders Celebrate Light Rail Funding<div class="ExternalClass54FA082EDE2441AFA7BB1609B7863679"><html> <p>Federal and local dignitaries gathered Friday, Nov. 19 to celebrate the signing of a $158 million full funding grant agreement for the Northwest Light Rail Extension Phase II (NWEII). <br></p><p>The extension adds 1.6 miles of track, three stations and a multimodal transit center to the existing 28-mile light rail system. The event culminated an exciting week for transportation with the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act signed into law on Monday. <br></p><p>“This extension is going to enable more people to enjoy safe, fast, frequent and reliable public transportation, and it’s an environmentally-friendly project,” said FTA Administrator Nuria Fernandez. “This connection will tie people to downtown, to Arizona State University and Sky Harbor International Airport—high-activity areas where there is job generation.”<br></p><p>Connecting from the existing end-of-line at 19th Avenue and Dunlap, the extension will provide greater transit access to Phoenix residents west of the I-17 thanks to a new rail-only bridge that will be built over the freeway and the first elevated station. It is expected to serve 5,700 riders each day.<br></p><p>“With the Northwest Extension Phase II, we see a community identifying transportation needs, developing smart solutions, standing up for its values and investing local dollars in these projects.” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “Thanks to this project, communities will now have better and more affordable access to jobs, healthcare, services, downtown and everywhere that Valley Metro reaches.” ​<br></p><p>“The construction of this light rail connection will serve thousands of daily riders, opening up opportunities for folks to access education and good-paying jobs,” said U.S. Senator Mark Kelly. “That’s how we continue to make the Valley a great place to live and to work. Like the other infrastructure projects we will see in our state, it’s going to put folks back to work.”<br></p><p>“One of the things I’m most proud of from my time as mayor is asking voters to grow our economy with an expansion of light rail into new neighborhoods throughout the city,” said U.S. Representative Greg Stanton. “But even with voter approval, it cannot happen without federal investment. Making this extension a reality is a catalyst for economic and social transformation, connecting the Northwest Valley to economic opportunities, jobs, education, health care, social services and more––in this region and beyond.”<br></p><p>“This extension will power our economy, connecting new parts of the city to educational institutions, employment centers, and a vibrant offering of arts, culture, and sports,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Combined with support coming from President Biden’s new infrastructure plan, we will strengthen our multi-modal transit system, reduce greenhouse gasses, and speed towards our climate goals.”<br></p><p>“Transit plays a major role in serving our diverse community and the fastest-growing county in the United States,” said Valley Metro Board Chair and Mesa Councilmember Francisco Heredia. “We will need all transit and transportation solutions on the table as we expect over a million more people to be coming to the Phoenix area in the next 10 years.”​<br></p><p>“Our system is relatively young—only 13 years old—but in that time, has changed our communities for the better,” s​aid Valley Metro CEO Scott Smith. “We have seen unprecedented mobility, development and change for the good. Northwest Extension Phase II has a huge impact because of where it is, crossing a boundary between central and west Phoenix, and ending at one of the most exciting and unique redevelopment efforts in the entire country.”  ​<br></p><p>The project’s total cost is $401 million, paid for by the federal Capital Investment Grant, Proposition 400 regional funds and city of Phoenix Transportation 2050 funds. Construction began in September 2020 and the extension is scheduled to begin operating in 2024.</p><p>For more photos of the event, <a target="_blank" href="">visit ​​​the Valley Metro Flickr site</a>.<br></p><p>For more information on Phoenix light rail projects <a target="_blank" href="">​</a>.​<br><br></p><p><br><br></p> </html></div> Transit
City Council Approves Findings of Preservation Style Study and Development11/22/2021 4:00:00 PM style.jpgCity Council Approves Findings of Preservation Style Study<div class="ExternalClass46ECF195E6774CF189D588C31B7FD2A8"><html> The Phoenix City Council has adopted key findings of an impact study of the city's historic preservation efforts over the past several decades. The study titled, <a target="_blank" href="/pddsite/Documents/Preservation%20Phoenix%20Style%20Report_Draft%20for%20Council%20(4).pdf">“Preservation Phoenix Style,"</a> identifies Phoenix's unique historic character and how historic preservation efforts have benefited the city.<br><br> “Our historic neighborhoods provide stable and viable assets to the city and the residents who live there," said Councilwoman Laura Pastor. “Phoenix is a great example of a city that truly champions its history and understands the tangible value preservation plays in a city's growth."<br><br> In 2020, the city council authorized a national consultant to conduct the research. The consultants met with small business owners, adaptive reuse developers, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego and Councilwoman Laura Pastor, city department directors, and key community members who were involved early in the historic preservation program. The city's historic preservation program was adopted in 1985, along with the Historic Preservation Ordinance, to protect, enhance and preserve areas of historical, cultural, archaeological and aesthetic historic significance. <br><br> “The study confirms what preservation advocates intuitively know: that historic preservation has economic, social, cultural and environmental benefits,"  said Historic Preservation Officer Michelle Dodds. “The study also demonstrates that our old housing stock provides affordable housing and should be maintained."<br><br> The study found Phoenix used innovation and creativity to provide tangible benefits to the economy, environment and culture. Below are some of the key findings of the study.<br><br> <ul> <li>The historic neighborhoods of Phoenix are dense, 1,000 people per square mile more dense than residential neighborhoods in the rest of the City.</li> <li>Historic neighborhoods in Phoenix are walkable—most rated “Very Walkable," as contrasted to “Car Dependent" for the City as a whole. </li> <li>During the real estate crisis which accompanied the Great Recession, foreclosure rates in historic neighborhoods were measurably lower than the rest of the City, a pattern that has continued in every year since.</li> <li>Even during the last five years of a boom cycle in real estate, property values in historic districts have outperformed the city as a whole.</li> <li>Phoenix historic neighborhoods are diverse neighborhoods, by race, ethnicity, and income.</li> <li>Phoenix historic neighborhoods are also diverse in their housing stock with a much wider range of housing options than most Phoenix subdivisions.</li> <li>These neighborhoods also have a diversity of housing prices, with two-thirds of the housing stock having values in the mid-market range of $200,000 to $400,000. </li> <li>The tree-cover typically found in historic areas has six times the air quality benefits per acre, five times the water saved, and sequesters five times the CO2 of the rest of the city. Commercial areas with a concentration of heritage buildings are magnets for small businesses, legacy businesses, and businesses in the creative and knowledge categories.</li> <li>95% of all businesses in the heritage commercial areas employ fewer than 20 workers. </li> <li>Legacy businesses—those in business for 25 years or longer— make up 12% of businesses in heritage commercial areas, versus 3% in the city overall. </li> <li>Job growth rates for businesses in the creative and knowledge sectors have all been higher over the past decade in heritage commercial areas than in the City as a whole. </li> <li>Forty-six percent of Phoenix households are considered low income, very low income or extremely low income. The city's inventory of older housing stock is providing affordable housing largely without subsidy, likely due to its age, condition and smaller unit size. </li> <li>It is critical that older affordable housing be maintained as it is not possible for Phoenix to build itself out of the affordable housing crisis.</li> </ul> For questions about Historic Preservation contact the city of <a target="_blank" href="/pdd/historic-preservation">Phoenix Historic Preservation Office</a>.​​<br></html></div>
