Temporary sign permits and use permits for certain activities will be required and staff is preparing for an influx the closer to the event.</p> <p></p> <p>​Temporary signs require a permit to ensure they are safely placed and do not block visibility for traffic and pedestrians. Please allow seven business days to processes the <a href="/pddsite/Documents/TRT/dsd_trt_pdf_00160.pdf" target="_blank">application</a> (PDF) for a temporary sign permit. You can submit for your <a href="/pdd/onlineservices/electronic-plan-review" target="_blank">application review</a> electronically. Banners also require permits and must not obstruct pedestrian areas, parking areas or traffic. Banners need to be mounted to a solid surface, not attached to railings or hung between vertical posts or columns. </p> <p>​To find out if a specific sign type is allowed, or if a business owner believes an additional use permit may be needed or for any other questions, contact the Signs Section at <a href="mailto:pdd.signservices@phoenix.gov" target="_blank">pdd.signservices@phoenix.gov</a> or 602-495-0301.​<br></p> <h2 id="permit">Temporary Use Permits<br></h2> <p>Businesses looking to expand some of their services during this time may need to apply for an Extension of Premise or a Use Permit.

Pueblo Grande Museum Changing Name to “S’edav Va’aki Museum” https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/2705Parks and Recreation3/24/2023 3:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2705/Sedav Vaaki Museum Front.jpgPueblo Grande Museum Changing Name to “S’edav Va’aki Museum” <div class="ExternalClassC3EF9F18F94E4CFEB05F092CDDF7C8FC"><html> <p>​During a Phoenix Parks and Recreation Board Meeting on Thursday, March 23, 2023, the board voted unanimously to change the name of Pueblo Grande Museum and Archaeological Park to “S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki Museum."</p> <p>The name S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki (Salt River Pima – Maricopa Indian Community spelling) or Central Vahki (English spelling) is an O'Odham name that reflects the connection the site has with the local O'Odham and Piipaash communities. S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki refers to the large platform mound (Va'aki) that is preserved at the site, and the central location of this ancestral village within the Salt River Valley and to the extensive canal system created by these exceptional engineers before Euro-Americans moved into the region.</p> <p>The Parks and Recreation Board also approved the use of the marketing tagline, “Gateway to Phoenix Heritage."</p> <p>“Renaming the Pueblo Grande Museum to the S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki Museum could not come at a better time as our city celebrates Phoenix History Month. The name change reflects our commitment to honoring the Indigenous people who helped build our community thousands of years ago. I look forward to the continued educational impact this museum will have on all Phoenicians," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego.</p> <p>“S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki Museum will continue to be an amazing resource for Phoenix history," District 8 Councilmember Carlos Garcia said. “We must ensure that our local institutions are reflecting the diversity of our area and taking steps to recognize and celebrate all cultures."</p> <p>“This is an important step for our City," said Kelly Dalton, Chair of the Parks and Recreation Board. "This new name reflects our commitment to honoring those who have shaped our culture and history."  </p> <p>“Words and titles matter. This name change will help to have a greater and more direct impact on how this significant ancestral site is interpreted," said Shane Anton, Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Tribal Historic Preservation Officer.</p> <p>The previous name, Pueblo Grande, is defined in the Spanish language and denotes the site as a “pueblo," which is not how the O'Odham would describe their villages or habitation sites. </p> <p>The museum exists to preserve and help interpret the site and the ancestral occupation and to bring attention to living indigenous communities. Located on a site with one of the few remaining platform mounds (Va'aki) differentiates the museum from other museums in Phoenix. Rebranding the museum with an appropriate O'Odham name will better serve museum audiences. This change will elevate the museum's profile and increase interest in the site.</p> <p>Throughout summer and fall, the museum will gradually begin transitioning signage throughout the museum and on the website. </p> <p>In fall of 2023, the new S'e<span style="text-decoration:underline;">d</span>av Va'aki Museum will unveil its new logo during a “reopening" event.</p> <p>The Parks and Recreation Department acknowledges the City of Phoenix is located within Native Land.

Competitors will have an opportunity to develop innovative solutions that will increase access to chilled drinking water in public spaces – and compete for cash prizes.<br><br><div>“To solve an important challenge, Phoenix is tapping into one of our greatest resources— our creative and enterprising residents,” said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Expanding public access to drinking water, especially in areas of high pedestrian and public transit, is essential to keeping our residents comfortable and safe. I’m excited to see the ideas that come from the City of Phoenix’s first Innovation Challenge.”<br></div><div><br></div><div>Groups of five to six people will work together to develop an innovative concept to present to a panel of judges for a chance to win up to $600 per person. <br></div><div><br></div><div>“Access to water in a desert city with over 1.5 million residents is essential," said Vice Mayor Ansari. "However, given the challenges with existing infrastructure and our rapidly rising population, water access is not always guaranteed for our residents, particularly those who are homeless. I'm excited to see the solutions generated by those competing in the City of Phoenix's first Innovation Challenge."</div><div><br></div><div><strong>Here are some details for contestants to consider and discuss:</strong></div><div>• New technologies to provide drinking water in public spaces that could make a system more accessible.</div><div>• Non-tech ideas to provide access to drinking water without using plastic water bottles.</div><div>• Cooling and shading efforts to keep the systems cool so the water stays cool in extreme heat.</div><div>• Education and communication strategies around the systems to build interest and encourage people to use the bottle filling stations.</div><div>• Innovative ideas for maintenance and preventing vandalism, such as tech solutions or wrap-around support from the community or businesses.</div><div>• Adding a public art component to support the project and encourage community engagement and preservation of the system.</div><div>• Sustainable ways to alert if a system isn't functioning properly and potentially losing water, as well as providing alternative options for those who forget their water bottle and would like to use a water filling station.</div><div><br></div><div>Contestants will participate in the hackathon from 11:30 a.m.-5 p.m. and attendees can watch the pitch competition from 5:30-7 p.m. at 850 PBC located at 850 N.

Critical Incident Briefing: March 8, 2023 – 27th Avenue and McDowell Roadhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2702Police3/22/2023 9:47:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/wHL8MN_I45MCritical Incident Briefing: March 8, 2023 – 27th Avenue and McDowell Road<div class="ExternalClassE71424A986CD4F79BDA7558742F1B950"><html>​WARNING: The attached video may contain strong language as well as graphic images which may be disturbing to some people. Viewer discretion is advised.<br> <br>The Phoenix Police Department has released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting which occurred on March 8, 2023.<br><br>This incident occurred near the intersection of 27th Avenue and McDowell Road when Phoenix Police received two calls for service at a business in the area. The first, was from a man who identified himself and requested an officer to meet him at the business to turn himself in. The second call was from an employee of the business who said the man who called police was inside the store yelling and screaming. <br><br>When the first officer arrived, he entered the business and contacted the man described in the 911 call. The man and officer walked outside together. As they began to talk, the man moved close to the officer and pushed him. The officer used his taser causing the suspect to fall to the ground. The officer moved in to take him into custody, but the suspect kicked the officer – knocking the taser out of his hand. The suspect then continued to attack the officer. The officer backed away from the suspect and fired his duty weapon as the suspect continued to advance on the officer.<br><br>Nearby surveillance footage captured a portion of the incident.  <br><br>The suspect was treated on scene by officers and the Phoenix Fire Department. He was transported to a local hospital in serious but stable condition. The officer's body worn camera was activated and captured the incident.<br><br>The investigation into whether the man is related to any previous crimes is still ongoing.<br><br>The officer involved in this incident is assigned to the Maryvale Estrella Mountain Precinct and has approximately 6 years of service with the department. <br><br><p>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officer are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete, it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.<br> <br>Public records law requires redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. That is why you may see some parts of the Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.<br></p></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
