Phoenix is Fastest-Growing U.S. City; Here's Where They Come Fromhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/ced/851Community and Economic Development1/23/2020 7:00:00 AMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/851/NEWSROOM_CED_0023.jpgPhoenix is Fastest-Growing U.S. City; Here's Where They Come From<div class="ExternalClass063B9942E2844186885073BF3F1D48B7"><html> <p>​More than one-quarter of a million new faces are calling Phoenix “home” since the 2010 Decennial Census. The city’s population of 1.7 million makes it the fastest-growing American city. Yet, finding a Phoenix native is still a challenge. More than three of four new residents move to Phoenix from elsewhere. <span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">In that same period, n</span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">early one million new</span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> faces now </span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">call "Arizona" home, according to the Census bureau. Where were the prior homes before Phoenix?</span></p> <p style="text-align:center;"> <em>By Eric Jay Toll for PHXNewsroom</em> <br> </p> <p>Data generated from website analytics say that Phoenix is one city where far-fewer plan to leave when compared to ​other major U.S. markets. With 22 percent of its renters looking to go elsewhere, only San Diego, with 21 percent of its renters, has a lower percentage of renters looking to leave.  Most of those who want to leave California plan to come to Phoenix, according to the <a href="https://www.apartmentlist.com/rentonomics/2020-q1-renter-migration-report/" target="_blank">ApartmetList</a> study.<br></p> <div> <p>Phoenix comes in second lowest on the places apartment dwellers want to leave. That’s according to aggregated data from ApartmentList. The analysis reports that a third of all new renters moving to Phoenix come from Los Angeles.<br></p><h3>Census says almost 70,000 Californians left state last year​​<br></h3> <p>While the value of this type of data is limited to the source’s clients and the data points selected for the aggregation, it echoes 2018 data from the <a href="https://www.census.gov/topics/population/migration/guidance/metro-to-metro-migration-flows.html" target="_blank">U.S. Census Bureau</a> for metros and the 2019 state-to-state population movement. <a href="https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-kits/2019/national-state-estimates.html" target="_blank">Census data</a> say nearly 70,000 Californians moved to Arizona last year. <br></p> <p>ApartmentList data say that more than eight times as many Angelenos, 33.2 percent, moved into Phoenix in 2019 as moved in from Riverside, California, 4.6 percent, the second city on the list of inbound renters’ place of origin. Third position Chicago generated 4 percent of Phoenix’s move-ins. The data also say that while 22 percent of current Phoenix apartment dwellers plan to relocate into other metros, among U.S. metros, only San Diego has a lower percentage.<br></p> <p>The renter data are compiled by analyzing a website user’s current place of residence with their ApartmentList searches into other cities. The data are limited to renters. Census data are estimates generated from a sampling of people who have actually moved from one metro to another. These data include renters and home buyers.<br></p><h3>Phoenicians moving out go to L.A., Tucson and Prescott​​<br></h3> <p>Los Angeles, Tucson and Prescott are the cities outbound Phoenix residents searched most often, according to ApartmentList. However, of Valley residents searching for a new place to rent, 77.6 percent looked somewhere within the Phoenix metro area. Only 22.4 percent looked to leave.<br></p> <p>In comparison, a little more than two-thirds of Denver and Austin residents looked to stay in their metro areas; in Chicago, more than 40 percent planned to leave the city. Nearly two-thirds look to leave the Bay Area and Silicon Valley. <br></p> <p>Those later data coincide with a study reported in the <a href="https://sf.curbed.com/2019/2/20/18233498/poll-2019-leaving-san-francisco-oakland-silicon-valley" target="_blank">Curbed San Francisco</a> reported that more than half of Bay Area residents want to leave the area.  <a href="https://www.reuters.com/article/us-california-population/half-of-california-voters-have-considered-leaving-over-housing-costs-politics-poll-idUSKBN1WC2DG" target="_blank">Reuters ​</a>reported that more than half of California voters would consider leaving over housing costs.<br></p><h3>A third of those looking to leave cities are looking to Phoenix<br></h3> <p>There are other interesting patterns in the ApartmentList data. Across the U.S., 34 percent of those looking to rent elsewhere are looking in Phoenix, tying with Los Angeles for 12th in the U.S. Denver topped the list with 48 percent of those looking elsewhere including Denver in their search. For Denver, however, 31 percent of its interested renters are looking to other metros, compared to 21 percent for San Diego and 22 percent for Phoenix, the first and second metros for fewest looking to leave.<br></p> <p>Orlando is on the bottom of that list, with 50 percent of its looking renters searching for a metro somewhere else for a new home. Orlando is followed by Riverside, California; Detroit, Chicago, and Charlotte, North Carolina.<br></p> <p>Census data also track immigrants to metros from other nations. Over the last five years, over 10,000 Asians, including Indians, moved into the Valley. That pace actually makes Asian nations the second-largest source of new residents for Phoenix. Central American immigrants, 7,300, would position as the fourth-largest source. Almost 6,000 came from Mexico and Canada, which would fall into the fifth-largest position.<br></p> </div> <h4>Top 10 Sources of New Phoenix Area Residents (2013-2018)<br></h4> <div> <table

July 4th Holiday Parking Restrictions at Phoenix Trailheadshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/1972Parks and Recreation6/27/2022 8:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1972/smp gate house.jpgJuly 4th Holiday Parking Restrictions at Phoenix Trailheads<div class="ExternalClassCD038A15350B4DB5A413B1493F30C9C4"><html> <p>​​To reduce​ fire danger, the <a href="/parks" target="_blank">Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department</a> will restrict parking access to trailheads located in the city's desert parks and mountain preserves on July 4 starting at 3 p.m. <a href="/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/1858" target="_blank">The annual ban of open fires in those areas that started on May 1 remains in effect</a>. All trails will remain open. Trailheads will reopen at the regularly-scheduled time on July 5.</p> <p>City of Phoenix Park Rangers will close entrance gates at 3 p.m. to Camelback Mountain, Deem Hills Recreation Area, Lookout Mountain, Papago Park, Phoenix Mountains Park and Recreation Area, Phoenix Mountains Preserve, Phoenix Sonoran Preserve, North Mountain Park, Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area, and South Mountain Park/Preserve. Additionally, the upper lookouts in South Mountain Park/Preserve will be emptied and closed at 1 p.m.</p> <p>The following list of regulations will apply on July 4 in those areas:<br></p> <ul style="" class="" dir=""><li>Fireworks are prohibited</li><li>Open wood and charcoal fires are prohibited (part of annual fire ban already in effect)</li><li>Propane or gas grills may be used, but only in established picnic areas</li><li>Smoking outside enclosed vehicles is prohibited (part of annual fire ban already in effect)</li><li>Alcoholic beverages prohibited</li><li>Glass beverage containers prohibited<br></li></ul> <p>As the temperature increases and humidity drops this time of year, those utilizing the city's desert parks and mountain preserves should use extra caution. Heat-related illness is common from May to October, and generally occur because the victim has been overexposed to heat or overexerted their body based on physical condition or age.</p> <p>The Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department and Phoenix Fire Department remind trail users to <a href="/parks/trails" target="_blank">“Take a Hike. Do it Right."</a> when enjoying the city's desert parks and mountain preserves. All trail users should follow these important and potentially life-saving hiking safety guidelines:</p> <ul style="" class="" dir=""><li><strong>Watch the Weather:</strong> Yes, “it's a dry heat" - but Arizona's temperature can be deceiving and deadly. Hike when it's cool outside, try early mornings and evenings when there's more shade.</li><li><strong>Dress Appropriately:</strong> Wear proper shoes, clothing, hat and sunscreen.</li><li><strong>Bring Water:</strong> Hydrate before you go. Have plenty of water, more than you think you need. Turn around and head back to the trailhead before you drink half of your water.</li><li><strong>Keep in Contact:</strong> Carry a mobile phone.</li><li><strong>Team Up:</strong> Hike with others. If hiking solo, tell someone your start and end times, and location.</li><li><strong>Be Honest:</strong> Do you have a medical condition? Asthma, heart problems, diabetes, knee or back problems? Don't push yourself! (Even trained athletes have been caught off guard by getting dehydrated on Arizona trails.)</li><li><strong>Don't Trailblaze​:</strong> Enjoy the Sonoran Desert's beautiful and undeveloped landscape, but please stay on designated trails.</li><li><strong>Take Responsibility:</strong> Don't be “that person" - the one who wasn't prepared, shouldn't have been there for health reasons or ignored safety guidelines. Be the responsible hiker, who takes a hike and does it right!</li></ul> <p>For the safety of pets, dogs are prohibited on any City of Phoenix trail when the temperature is 100 degrees or warmer. The Arizona Humane Society advises that temperatures in the 90s are also unsafe for pets to be outdoors. <a href="https://www.azhumane.org/pet-safety-tips/" target="_blank">Learn how to keep pets safe during Arizona's warm weather months</a>.</p> <p>Detailed information about Phoenix's more than 41,000 acres of desert parks and mountain preserves, and 200-plus miles of trails, is available at <a href="/parks" target="_blank">Phoenix.gov/Parks</a>.</p> <p>Additional information about how residents can have fun this summer and keep their family and friends safe is available at <a href="/pio/summer" target="_blank">Phoenix.gov/Summer</a>.<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parksNews

Viewer discretion is advised.</strong> <br> <br>The Phoenix Police Department has released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an in-custody death which occurred on June 10, 2022.</p> <p>This incident occurred in the area of 91st Avenue and McDowell Road when Phoenix police received several calls about a man believed to be under the influence, banging his head against a vehicle, and acting erratic.</p> <p>Officers were dispatched to the scene and learned the subject of the call may also be bleeding. Tolleson fire personnel were also dispatched. </p> <p>The first officer to arrive at the business saw the subject of the call, later identified as Caleb Blair, and attempted to give him commands via a public announcement system. The officer saw Blair nude, and acting erratically. Additional officers arrived and Blair was detained for his safety and taken to a shady section of the parking lot. Officers also requested fire personnel, who were staging nearby, to respond to the scene.</p> <p>Minutes later, the Tolleson Fire Department arrived on the scene and began treating Blair. After a short time, his handcuffs were removed to better provide medical care.</p> <p>While being treated, Blair lost consciousness.
