Based in Tucson, this location marks Barrio’s second location in Maricopa County with the first being at the Mesa-Gateway Airport.</span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <br> </span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;">Established in 1991, Barrio Brewery holds the distinction of being Arizona's oldest brewery, and the only brewery in Arizona 100% employee-owned. The latest addition at the Deer Valley Airport will feature local microbrews and regional favorites, serving contemporary Mexican cuisine and traditional pub grub. Travelers and neighborhood patrons will be able to enjoy an earthy, down-home, comfortable dining experience. Their hours of operation are Sunday through Thursday from 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM, and Friday through Saturday from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM.</span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <br> </span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;">“I remember attending many community-based events at the old restaurant in Deer Valley Airport,” said Councilwoman Ann O’Brien. “Like many members of the North Phoenix community, I was thrilled when Barrio Brewery announced their intent to open their second valley location at DVT! I’m even more grateful the team at Kind Hospitality understood the sentimental value the old restaurant held in my constituents’ hearts. They’ve managed to incorporate many of the aspects that made the old restaurant so endearing and nostalgic.”</span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <br> </span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;">Barrio Brewery will feature a full bar with their local brews, breakfast and lunch/dinner menus, community meeting spaces, private dining rooms, as well as some of the old model planes from the previous restaurant incorporated into their design. Patrons will also be able to bring their growlers in to fill them with their favorite Barrio beer, as well as grab-and-go 6-packs.</span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <br> </span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;">This is sure to be a special evening filled with celebration, featuring delicious hors d'oeuvres and an official ribbon-cutting ceremony.</span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <br> </span> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <strong>Event Details:</strong> </span> </div> <div> <ul> <li> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <strong>What</strong>: Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting – Barrio Brewery</span> </li> <li> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <strong>When</strong>: Tuesday, January 23rd – 5:30pm</span> </li> <li> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <strong>Where</strong>: Barrio Brewery – Deer Valley Airport (702 W Deer Valley Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85027)</span> </li> <li> <span style="font-size:13.3333px;"> <strong>Media Contact</strong>: Derrik Rochwalik, Councilwoman O'Brien's Chief of Staff, derrik.rochwalik@phoenix.gov, call or text (480)202-7347​</span> </li> </ul> </div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district1Newsdistrict-1District 1AnnO’Brien

The Sister Cities Program was created to foster relationships between the people of Phoenix and our Sister Cities around the world to promote friendship, peace, and prosperity.<br></div> <div></div> <div> <br> </div> <div>The relationship between Ennis, Ireland, and Phoenix, Arizona was established in 1988. Former Phoenix City Councilman Howard Adams was a major influence in the development of the Ennis Sister City Program. The Irish Cultural Center (ICC), located in Downtown Phoenix, was established in 1988 with the installation of the Hunger Memorial, acknowledging the immense loss of life due to the 19th century Potato Famine. Two past Irish presidents, Mary Robinson and Mary MacAleese, have visited the ICC.<br></div> <div></div> <div>“I’m very excited to be representing the City of Phoenix as we celebrate the 35th Anniversary of our Sister City relationship with Ennis, Ireland,” said Councilwoman O’Brien. “My own family history with Ireland runs deep and my connection with the Irish Cultural Center is rich. I look forward to continuing to foster stronger relations with my fellow Ennis elected officials and continue the long history of sharing cultures.”<br></div> <div> <br> </div> <div>The most recent Phoenix delegations to Ennis were in 2005 and 2013.</div> <div> <br> </div> <div> <strong>Media Contact: </strong>Derrik Rochwalik, Councilwoman O'Brien's Chief of Staff, ​​derrik.rochwalik@phoenix.gov, call or text (480)202-7347<br><br></div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district1Newsdistrict-1District 1AnnO’Brien

Councilwoman O’Brien Releases Yearlong Study into Homeless Causes and Solutionshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-1/2791City Council District 16/26/2023 4:05:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2791/Newsroom_Council_News_01.jpgCouncilwoman O’Brien Releases Yearlong Study into Homeless Causes and Solutions<div class="ExternalClass20D57CA94AC043D4991A034AA785ED7A"><html> <div>For the past year, Councilwoman Ann O’Brien’s office has been researching causes of the homeless epidemic and how other cities and towns across the Country have implemented solutions to reduce their homeless populations and increase the quality of life for community members and their neighborhoods. During this period of research, her staff met with stakeholders ranging from elected officials from all over the country, to non-profit leaders operating in the sphere of homeless solutions ranging from shelters, to mental health facilities, to drug rehabilitation programs.<br></div><div><br></div> <div>In research, it was discovered that while Phoenix only has 37% of the regional population total, Phoenix bears the brunt of the homeless problem with 71% of the region’s homeless population. Factors leading to that could include the fact that Phoenix houses the Human Services Campus, a regional group of homeless service providers, in our Downtown Core. Additional factors could be related to the exponential increase in housing prices and the exponential decrease of traditionally affordable and attainable housing units.<br></div><div><br></div> <div>“Homelessness is a complex problem derived of compounding issues. I don’t believe these proposed solutions I’ve put together are the end all be all, but many of them are proven solutions in various cities and towns who are experiencing the same growth in homeless populations and the same constraints put on us by our court systems,” said Councilwoman O’Brien.<br></div><div><br></div> <div>This plan includes solutions such as calling for the creation of a Community Court system within our City Courts to provide services to the traditionally service-resistant individuals who are committing crimes. Also included in this document are calls for more partnerships between the State and the County related to additional legislation to explore regional services so Phoenix does not bear the brunt of all of Maricopa County’s problems.<br></div><div><br></div> <div>“I think this plan provides well-rounded thoughts and ideas for city staff to explore. We didn’t get to this problem overnight and it will not be an overnight solution. However, I believe, through some of these solutions, we can work to implement new city strategies to catch folks before they become homeless and create new city programs designed to make our neighborhoods and parks safer and hold people accountable for their actions,” Councilwoman O’Brien continued.<br></div> <div> <br> </div> <a href="/district1site/Documents/Proposed%20Homeless%20Solutions%20Plan.pdf" target="_blank"> <div>To view Councilwoman O’Brien’s proposed solutions plan, click here.​<br></div> </a> <div> <br> </div> <div> <strong>Media Contact:</strong> Derrik Rochwalik, Councilwoman O'Brien's Chief of Staff, derrik.rochwalik@phoenix.gov, call or text (480)202-7347<br></div> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district1Newsdistrict-1District 1AnnO’Brien

It was a place for families to gather for the holidays, friends to share movies with, a hot spot for my generation to cruise around the mall in our cars, and the first place in Phoenix where we could ice skate! Previously filled with teenagers occupying the seats in the food court, parents school clothes shopping for their kids, and senior citizens doing their own form of cruising by mall walking, Metrocenter now sits empty and ready for its next phase in life!<br></div><div><br></div> <div>“I’m sure a lot of us have our own Metrocenter mall memories,” says Councilwoman Ann O’Brien. “For me, it could be one of my many shifts working at Parklane Hosiery, or how every time I heard the sirens of a fire truck, I would scatter so my dad never found out I was out cruising with the boys from my class!”<br></div><div><br></div> <div>But, fear not my dudes! Join us at a free outdoor event filled with music, food, kids’ activities, a car show, photobooths, memory walls, and even a 1980s costume contest as we share memories of the past and usher in the future of Metrocenter Mall. The outdoor event will be held at Metrocenter Mall and is free to attend. <a href="https://www.eventbrite.com/e/metrocenter-a-fond-farewell-event-registration-631778224677" target="_blank">Folks interested in attending the free event can register through this link.</a><br></div><div><br></div> <div>A little-known fact, but a most excellent movie was once filmed in Metrocenter! As part of the farewell tribute to Metrocenter, Harkins is partnering with my office for this event to provide a special showing of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure in their theaters located in Metrocenter. Much like Bill & Ted, we’re going back in time to offer the average movie ticket price from the 1980s of $5 a ticket! <a href="https://harkins.com/movies/bill-and-teds-excellent-metrocenter-event/2023-05-21" target="_blank">Tickets for the movie can be purchased via Harkins through this link.</a><br></div><div><br></div> <div>Come join us at Metrocenter Mall while we party on one last time!<br></div> <div></div> <div> <strong> <br> </strong> </div> <div> <strong>Event Details:</strong> <br> </div> <div> <ul> <li> <strong>What</strong>: Metrocenter: A Fond Farewell Event</li> <li> <strong>When</strong>: 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.; May 21st, 2023</li> <li> <strong>Where</strong>: Metrocenter Mall</li> <li> <strong>How</strong>:<a href="https://www.eventbrite.com/e/metrocenter-a-fond-farewell-event-registration-631778224677" target="_blank"> Register for free event here;​</a> <a href="https://harkins.com/movies/bill-and-teds-excellent-metrocenter-event/2023-05-21" target="_blank">Reserve movie ticket here</a></li> <li> <strong>Note</strong>: Registering for the free event does not reserve a seat in the movie.

Similar to existing programs in Scottsdale and Chandler, these lockboxes will contain a key to the home, possible medical information such as known prescriptions, pre-existing medical conditions, allergies to medications, as well as any access cards needed to gain entry. The code to the lockboxes will be archived with 911 dispatchers and will be provided to first responders answering an emergency call.</p> <p>The intention of this program is to prevent forced entry into homes where the caller may not be physically capable of answering the door. As of now, our first responders must force entry by breaking a window or door – causing damage to the residence.</p> <p>“I'm thankful for the partnership with the Phoenix REALTORS and for their continued commitment to the safety of all our residents," Councilwoman O'Brien said. “This program will allow our first responders to safely enter a home and help our most vulnerable residents quicker and without damaging their property."</p> <p>The Phoenix REALTORS has committed to donating 100 lockboxes for the pilot program with a larger commitment to continue to partner at full buildout. Similar partnerships are utilized in the same program found in Scottsdale and Chandler with their realtors' associations.</p> <p>“With time and information being at a premium when emergencies arise, we are grateful for the opportunity to help both vulnerable residents and first responders when precious seconds are at stake by providing lockboxes," said Butch Leiber, president of Phoenix REALTORS. “We look forward to seeing results from the pilot and eager to help expand the program by working collaboratively with the City of Phoenix and Phoenix Fire Department."   </p> <p>“I've always been committed to seeing what other cities are doing surrounding public safety and engaging in best practices," Councilwoman O'Brien continues. “This program is a shining example of what other cities are doing right and implementing similar programs in Phoenix."</p> <p>If you're a District 1 resident who is over the age of 65 or are an adult with disabilities, <a target="_blank" href="https://action.phoenix.gov/c1.pl?341fa8e018e7b54a18d08905ca04cb60784262fe3fe933b5">you can visit this website to apply for the pilot program.</a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Media Contact:</strong> Derrik Rochwalik, Council District 1 Chief of Staff, 480-202-7347, <a target="_blank" href="https://action.phoenix.gov/c1.pl?3b1ffea3f15a76ec1ba8aa29b0c50388b7369de202a74bc1">derrik.rochwalik@phoenix.gov</a></p> <p><strong>About District 1</strong><br> District 1 is located in northwest Phoenix.

These parks were identified by the Parks Department as the parks with the highest rates of crime and park violations. The security monitors would supplement existing Park Rangers and operate overnight when Park Rangers are not patrolling. The park identified as the highest need throughout the City was Cortez Park in District 1.</p> <p>Since then, community members have identified the need for increased patrols at two additional parks in District 1 – Deer Valley Park and Telephone Pioneer Park. After speaking with officers in the Black Mountain Precinct, Councilwoman O'Brien was informed of the need for new bikes and equipment to make patrolling of parks more efficient for the officers.</p> <p>“Since day one of stepping foot into my office I have been committed to ensuring our officers have every tool they need to adequately patrol and enforce our laws," said Councilwoman O'Brien. “If providing these bikes helps our officers get into the parks and deter negative activity, I'm happy to reach into the District 1 budget to provide them."</p> <p>Councilwoman O'Brien is allocating 100 percent of the funds directly out of the District 1 office budget to ensure the bikes are used specifically for the officers within the Black Mountain Precinct where the additional parks are located.</p> <p> <strong>Media Contact:</strong> Derrik Rochwalik, Council District 1 Chief of Staff, <a href="https://action.phoenix.gov/c1.pl?33f4c4fef6c759ea647241c13f6022ddc53f5d822f07ba06" target="_blank">derrik.rochwalik@phoenix.gov</a> or (480)202-7347<br></p> <p> <strong>About District 1</strong> <br> District 1 is located in northwest Phoenix.
