Many of those in attendance rode their bikes to the event.<br></p> <p>“It is an exciting day to celebrate completion of this impactful project," Councilwoman Ansari said. “It is very important for the city to continue to create safer micromobility options like this that encourage residents to walk and ride bikes, and reduce the number of cars on the roads. That is how we'll meet the city's climate and sustainability goals."<br></p> <p>Finished in phases throughout 2021 and fully realized on November 23, the project added improved and safer bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure on both 3rd and 5th Avenues between Washington Street and McDowell Road. The project also improved traffic circulation around the downtown area by converting both roadways from one-way to two-way traffic between Washington and Roosevelt streets. Other improvements along both streets include upgraded traffic signals, landscaping enhancements, the addition of shade structures, and new pavement and roadway striping. </p> <p>Community input and engagement helped the city's Street Transportation Department design a project that recognizes and meets the changing needs of downtown road users. The public engagement phase of the project began in 2016 with a three-day, open-house style workshop at which residents could provide feedback. Construction officially began in mid-2020.</p> <p>A <a target="_blank" href="http://www.phoenix.gov/streets/3rdAnd5thAvenuesNorth">future project</a> on 3rd and 5th Avenues north of McDowell Road, currently in the planning phase, will continue the two-way protected bike lanes up to Thomas Road. Community engagement for that project will continue in early 2022 with another virtual public meeting.</p> <p>Additionally, the city also is looking at options to improve bicycle safety on the other side of downtown along Fillmore Street between Central Avenue and 7th Street. A public input process for that project will begin on December 14, with <a target="_blank" href="/streets/fillmore">a virtual public meeting scheduled for 6 p.m.</a></p> <p>To improve safety for all users of Phoenix's roadways, the Street Transportation Department is developing a <a target="_blank" href="/streets/roadsafety">Road Safety Action Plan</a> and is currently facilitating the public engagement phase of that process. Community members are encouraged to provide input that will help shape the plan by taking an <a target="_blank" href="https://live.metroquestsurvey.com/?u=kq5n5y#%21/?p=web">online interactive survey</a> that is available in English and Spanish.​<br></p><br> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7District 7YassaminAnsari

We failed them in these two instances.<br><br>While I wasn't in office when these two events occurred, I've heard time and time again about the urgent need for reform to ensure greater accountability, transparency, and justice. <br><br>City Manager Ed Zuercher and Chief of Police Jeri Williams today announced immediate action items the department is taking while it undergoes review by the Department of Justice and now-requested review by the Arizona Attorney General's office, but we can do more. The following needs immediate attention:<br><ol><li>“Reassigning" the 3 Assistant Chiefs involved in the gang investigation is not enough – their actions were unacceptable and undeniably unethical. They must be fired.<br></li></ol><ol start="2"><li>Officers who avoided being investigated have no doubt been protected by the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the City and the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association. I echo Vice Mayor Garcia's request for a public negotiation process in the future and for city staff to renegotiate the components named in these reports that are a barrier to timely and thorough investigations.</li></ol>We must do everything we possibly can to show responsibility and due diligence in addressing these issues. We cannot wait another year to act on what indisputably is an overreach of power. We owe it to every Phoenician who has been wrongly charged, impacted and to show how seriously we are taking these findings."<br></html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7District 7YassaminAnsari
