We approved increasing pay for our police officers, making our department the highest paid agency in the state.​​<br></p> <p>This is only one step toward restoring credibility with our true heroes. Politicians must stop listening to the anti-police whackos demanding to 'defund the police'. Until politicians stop, police will continue leaving in masses, putting our families in great danger. No amount of money will keep police on the job if they are under attack."<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio

This week is intended to honor those who risk their lives every day in the line of duty, as well as the fallen officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Our men and women in blue need to feel our support now, more than ever.  <br><br> Frankly, one week feels like not enough.<br><br> I want to specifically recognize Officer Ginarro New and Officer Matt Hefter — two Phoenix Police officers we lost in the past year. Their sacrifice does not go unnoticed. <br><br> Phoenix City Hall will be lit up in blue in honor of National Police Week. I encourage that symbol to be a reminder to you, and to City leadership, of the significance of honoring, thanking, and remembering our officers, and the consequences we face when we fail to do so." ​​​<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio
Councilman DiCiccio's Statement on Controversial Street Signs: 'It's OK to say NO to panhandlers'https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-6/2340City Council District 65/5/2022 7:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2340/Newsroom_Council_Statement_06.jpgCouncilman DiCiccio's Statement on Controversial Street Signs: 'It's OK to say NO to panhandlers'<div class="ExternalClass892F537088044212A6EC6C38E600FEDF"><html> <p>​"As of right now, my district is the only district with these signs directing people to give to shelters, instead of giving to people on the streets. I fully support these controversial signs and here's why: Individuals asking for money on street corners or medians create unsafe situations that neither benefit the individual nor our community. But when we give to shelters, who are doing angel work to help those same people get back on their feet with resources like drug rehab or other behavioral health programs, we can have more hope of effecting help. Like the signs read, it's OK to say NO to panhandlers. Give to your local shelters, instead." <br></p><div style="text-align:center;"> <img style="width:300px;margin:5px;" class="" alt="16th St and Camelback (4).jpg" src="https://action.phoenix.gov/users/myteam46126/Media5040.jpg" /> </div><p style="text-align:center;">16th Street & Camelback Road</p><div style="text-align:center;"> <img style="width:300px;margin:5px;" class="" alt="SR51 and Glendale (6).jpg" src="https://action.phoenix.gov/users/myteam46126/Media5041.png" /> </div><p style="text-align:center;">SR51 & Glendale Avenue<br></p><div style="text-align:center;"> <img style="width:300px;margin:5px;" class="" alt="32nd St and Camelback (2).jpg" src="https://action.phoenix.gov/users/myteam46126/Media5042.png" /> </div><p style="text-align:center;">32nd Street & Camelback Road​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio

Swim lessons will also be available throughout the summer at Pecos Pool. As a father, I know how important it is for kids to be able to access their community pools for cool, safe, and active entertainment to beat the desert heat.”</p> <p>Pecos Pool will open for the season on Memorial Day Weekend (May 28 - 30). The pool will then be open six days a week from June 4 through July 31 (closed on Fridays). Admission to swim at Pecos Pool is $1 for ages 17 and under, $1 for ages 60 and older, and $3 for adults (18-59).</p> <p>Swim lessons registration opens on May 12 at noon, and you can <a target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://action.phoenix.gov/c1.pl?3538c17f61c10a2d0bbb1485bf2f9b45da177c887dd80a0f5439f73ad3831f29" href="https://action.phoenix.gov/c1.pl?3538c17f61c10a2d0bbb1485bf2f9b45da177c887dd80a0f5439f73ad3831f29">register online here</a>.

I know that Mountain Vista is a well-used and well-loved playground in District 6.”</span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family:arial;font-size:16px;">These updates were part of a long-awaited project that began with community outreach about a year ago. Staff visited the park in the evenings and on weekends to collect feedback from park visitors. They shared three potential updated playground options, and the design with the most votes was chosen. </span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family:arial;font-size:16px;">The newly improved Mountain Vista Playground is ADA accessible with ramps in the containment areas and sidewalks from the parking area. One of the original play structures, a fire truck climber, was kept and refurbished. That was one thing the community specifically requested be preserved.</span> </p> <p> <span style="font-family:arial;font-size:16px;">“A park should fit the needs of the community members that use it,” the Councilman said. “I am pleased to see how the City took the communities preferences and made them a reality here at Mountain Vista.”</span> </p> <p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> <span style="font-family:arial;">The North Playground is age appropriate for ages two to five.

"The work CPLC does in our community from education to economic development is significant, and I want to make sure the City of Phoenix is doing everything it can to support them." </p> <p>A total of $32,500 in federal funds is going towards a walk-in cooler and walk-in freezer unit for the CPLC Casa Primavera Senior Center. For more than 35 years, the center has been supporting residents at the Casa Primavera Senior Independent Living Apartment Community and many other seniors who live in surrounding neighborhoods. The center has a commercial kitchen to help prepare meals, however the faulty refrigeration system has been a struggle. This upgrade will ensure perishable, fresh foods continue to be available without service disruption. </p> <p>"Food is fundamental, and CPLC should have the equipment they need to offer nutritious options to the seniors they serve," the Councilman added. </p> <p>The federal funds donated are part of the City's larger allocation from ARPA, and were funneled through the City's Resilient Food System Program to CPLC. The City worked with the Arizona Food Bank Network, a regular partner of food pantries, to get the funds distributed.</p> <p>“We appreciate the support and commitment to our seniors,” said David Adame, President and CEO of Chicanos Por La Causa. “CPLC Casa Primavera offers education, nutritious meals, wellness activities, advocacy and social services to promote a healthy lifestyle to the aging population in west Phoenix.”</p> <p>Chicanos Por La Causa is an advocate for underserved individuals and communities. The non-profit organization fights to empower individuals with a hand up, not a hand out, focusing on five key areas of impact: health & human services, housing, education, economic development, and advocacy.</p> <p> <strong>WHAT:</strong> Check presentation for new food pantry equipment <br><br> <strong>WHO:</strong> Phoenix District 6 Councilman Sal DiCiccio, Chicanos Por La Causa President & CEO David Adame <br><br> <strong>WHEN:</strong> Monday, March 21, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. <br><br> <strong>WHERE:</strong> CPLC Casa Primavera Senior Center (1617 North 45th Avenue, Phoenix, AZ 85035)<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district6Newsdistrict-6District 6SalDiCiccio
