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

Only about half of Phoenix pools will be reopening in 2022 due to lifeguard shortages. With 100+ degree days just around the corner, I was excited to work with our Parks and Recreation Department to ensure Pecos Pool was available to the public for another summer. 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>.
