Councilwoman Ansari Celebrates $25M Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Award from the Department of Transportation Set to Connect South Phoenix and Downtown Residents in District 7 https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/district-7/2440City Council District 78/11/2022 11:45:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2440/Newsroom_Council_News_07.jpgCouncilwoman Ansari Celebrates $25M Bipartisan Infrastructure Law Award from the Department of Transportation Set to Connect South Phoenix and Downtown Residents in District 7 <div class="ExternalClassF70A4494D9304172AE3D4CD86144C4C6"><html> <p>​​“Earlier this March, I hosted a District 7 infrastructure tour to spotlight how the Rio Salado revitalization could be fast-tracked thanks to federal funding. I made a commitment to our residents that I would push our city to be competitive and deliver long-promised investments in South Phoenix. Our residents deserve improved mobility and greater access to green spaces, and today, we are seeing one of the first major investments roll out and become a reality.<br></p> <p>This $25M RAISE grant from the Department of Transportation is a critical first step to bringing our residents multi-modal options and to reimagine commutes to work, school, parks and more. I cannot wait for the day when residents of all ages have the choice of either walking or biking along 3rd Street or catching the light rail. This type of investment in people-centered infrastructure is how we build healthy, vibrant communities."<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/district7Newsdistrict-7D7District 7YassaminAnsariStephanie Barnes602-316-0958 stephanie.barnes@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/42/Stephanie_Barnes.jpgDistrict7PHX

 

 

City of Phoenix Holds Community Meeting For Future Fire Station 74https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/fire/2945Fire12/1/2023 8:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2945/Newsroom_FIre_Fix.jpgCity of Phoenix Holds Community Meeting For Future Fire Station 74<div class="ExternalClassF88F974BC06A457EBC50904AB6ED2ADD"><html> <p>​​On Thursday, November 30th the City of Phoenix held a community meeting at Pecos Community Center focused on the plans for future Phoenix Fire Station 74. This will be the fourth fire station addition to Ahwatukee. This will complete the firefighting force for the growing community and greatly reduce response times by crews.<br><br>Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, District 6 Phoenix City Councilman Kevin Robinson, and District 1 Phoenix City Councilwoman and Public Safety and Justice Chair Ann O'Brien were in attendance of the community meeting. Members of the Phoenix Fire Department's Executive Staff and the City of Phoenix's Parks and Recreation Department joined Pearlman Architects to discuss the future fire station. <br><br>The meeting focused on sharing conceptual <a href="https://perlman.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/stream.aspx?id=/Graphics/2023%20Graphics%20Projects/323009%20-%20Phoenix%2074/Public%20Mtg%2011302023/Phx%2074%20Fly%20Around.mp4&referrer=StreamWebApp.Web&referrerScenario=AddressBarCopied.view" target="_blank">designs </a>from Pearlman Architects and the relocation of the Buresa Trailhead. Because the City of Phoenix already owns the land through the Parks and Recreation Department, the project will be fast tracked. But not to fear, the trailhead is not closing and not going far! The relocation of the Buresa Trailhead will be moved less than ¼ of a mile to the west.<br><br>Located on the northwest corner of 19th Avenue and Chandler Boulevard, this will allow for both the enjoyment of the beautiful Phoenix trail and the building of a new 13,250 square foot state of the art fire station. <br><br>Built with sustainability in mind, the future Phoenix Fire Station 74 has been designed per the City of Phoenix building design standards and current adopted building codes. It will incorporate environmental design principals similar to LEED to reduce energy consumption and water preservation.<br><br>The station will be single story and include three bays to house a fire engine and medical rescue. It will also include thirteen unisex dorms for firefighters to operate 24/7, 365 days a year. <br><br>When completed, the Ahwatukee community will have a total of four fire stations with four engine companies, one ladder company, three rescue companies. The city will hire and train 24 new Phoenix firefighters to provide staffing for three shifts and the necessary relief rate. The daily staffing will be six people total, including four on the engine and two on the rescue. <br><br></p> <p>Construction is set for early 2024 with the goal of completing the station by 2025 to begin operations. ​<br><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/fireNews
