Mayor Gallego to Co-Chair Effort for Water Solutionshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/mayors-office/2130Mayor's Office11/4/2021 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2130/50L_Photo_001.jpgMayor Gallego to Co-Chair Effort for Water Solutions<div class="ExternalClassC0610D0E3DD840D3886F1E0D24415B12"><html> ​​(GLASGOW, SCOTTLAND) – Mayor Kate Gallego has been named Public Sector Co-chair of the <a target="_blank" href="https://50lhome.org/">50 Liter Home Coalition</a> (50L Home), a collaborative of private, public, and civic leaders who aim to reinvent the future of urban water use through innovations that reduce carbon emissions and promote water security for all.  The announcement came during today's <a target="_blank" href="https://ukcop26.org">COP26</a> sessions, which featured Mayor Gallego and IKEA Group's Chief Sustainability Officer leading a discussion on how cities can address multi-system challenges around water security.<br><br>“Our members and partners in the 50L Home Coalition envision a future where water efficiency and zero-carbon living are an irresistible aspiration for all," said Braulio Eduardo Morera, Director of the 50L Home Coalition. “To achieve such an ambitious target, it is essential we engage with cities and communities and listen to their leaders. We are delighted Mayor Kate Gallego has accepted our Coalition's invitation to be our Public Sector Chair. Her vision for Phoenix as a desert community that prioritizes sustainable growth will be a north star for our work; together we will innovate new water and energy solutions, learn from global best practices, and share what Phoenicians have learned."<br><br>“Just as we have led in innovations like cool pavement, we will continue to find new solutions to address water scarcity and drought," said Mayor Gallego. “I look forward to my role as Co-chair and piloting programs cities around the world have designed, so we can demonstrate the results, and lessons learned, and share them widely. The breakthroughs will become the standard practices of the future."<br><br>The 50L Home Coalition is a global action-oriented platform that unites leaders from the private, nonprofit, and public sectors to address two of the world's most pressing challenges: water <br>security and climate change. This global collaboration aims to transform the way we use water and energy at home, and change the narrative on domestic water consumption by making a water-efficient lifestyle – one where each person uses 50 liters of water per day – both attainable and irresistible. In selecting Mayor Gallego as Public Sector Chair, the Coalition noted her strong environmental leadership, driven by a desire to keep Phoenix a frontrunner in sustainability.<br><br>The 50L Home was inspired by Cape Town's response to a major drought and the looming prospect of a 'Day-Zero' in 2017 and 2018 – the day the city would be forced to turn off water service to all citizens. Cape Town residents had to significantly reduce their water use at home to only 50 liters per person per day. Many cities all over the world are facing a similar threat of Day Zero conditions due to severe water scarcity, while millions of urban dwellers still don't have access to safe drinking water in their homes.<br><br>“As a desert city, Phoenix is a living lab for water and energy innovation, with an essential need to make the most of every drop. The work we do now will inform the lives of the next generation, including my son," said Mayor Gallego. “I want them to experience a verdant, vital world that has recovered from its most serious threat."<br><br>Launched on October 27, 2020, the 50L Home Coalition is supported by an emerging group of global private partners - including Electrolux, Engie, IKEA, Kohler, Procter & Gamble (P&G), Suez, and Arcadis. It was convened by the World Economic Forum, 2030 Water Resources Group, and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.<br><br>Mayor Gallego joins private sector co-chair Shailesh Jejurikar, Chief Operating Officer of P&G. The Public Sector Co-Chair role represents non-governmental organization, international governmental organizations, as well as other government or other interested groups that join the 50L Home initiative. <br><br>50L Home was selected by the World Economic Forum as one of its Lighthouse Projects in 2020. Lighthouse Projects exemplify the ways in which stakeholders are making concrete progress to address the pressing societal, economic, environmental, technology, regional and industry<br>challenges of our time. In May 2021, 50L Home was recognized by Fast Company as an Honorable Mention in the General Excellence category of its 2021 World Changing Ideas Awards.<br> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/mayorNewsmayors-officeMayor being Interviewed holding microphoneMayor's Office#MayorsOffice @mayorgallego #COP26 #ClimateChange #WaterCOP26, Mayor Gallego, Glasgow, 50LHome Coalition, Climate Change, Water Conservation, Jeanine L'Ecuyer602-526-1335jeanine.lecuyer@phoenix.govMayorGallego

New Shelter Opens in Phoenix Offering Heat Relief and Services for 200 People Experiencing Homelessnesshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/human-services/2353Human Services5/19/2022 6:30:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/DghnsnD-KvcNew Shelter Opens in Phoenix Offering Heat Relief and Services for 200 People Experiencing Homelessness<div class="ExternalClassB249F91E0EFE42B882B508A50F4E2C27"><html> <p>​<span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span>The City of Phoenix and Maricopa County partnered to open a facility in central Phoenix that will provide day and nighttime relief from the summer heat for 200 people experiencing homelessness.<br><br>“Arizona's summer heat can be deadly. We need to ensure that everyone, especially our most vulnerable residents, has a safe place to stay cool during our hottest months," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “This shelter is just one part of the City of Phoenix's strong commitment to leading with services and connecting those who are unsheltered with the appropriate resources."<br><br>The facility, owned by the City of Phoenix, is located near 28th and Washington Streets. The shelter is a closed campus, meaning there are no walk-up services and clients need to be referred to the facility by a caseworker. One unique aspect of this project is it prioritizes serving people experiencing homelessness in the surrounding neighborhood.<br><br>“It's really tough to have a conversation of bringing a shelter to a community, but I understood the need in our city and in my district and the importance of it," District 8 Councilmember Carlos Garcia said. “There had to be a process to talk to the folks around here and make sure that this became an asset for the community around this shelter. This shelter is not only adding bed space, but it is also making sure that it has the resources wrapped around people sleeping here. The services provided will hopefully set them on a path to be permanently housed. I'm grateful for our partnership with the neighborhood, City staff, St. Vincent de Paul, and Maricopa County. I know that we are all invested in this being a successful model that can be replicated." <br><br>People staying at the facility will have dedicated beds to sleep in, access to three meals each day, showers, and a secure place to store their belongings. Pets are also welcome. St. Vincent de Paul will operate the center and provide comprehensive case management services to each resident. Staff will be able to assist individuals with obtaining identification, accessing medical and financial services and connecting to employment and housing opportunities.<br><br>“It's a great privilege and responsibility to be one of the lead partners on this pilot program," said Jessica Berg, Saint Vincent de Paul Chief Program Officer. “We like to think that City and County chose SVdP for not only our proven track record of running a successful shelter, but also for our culture of dignified service, kindness and working collaboratively with our neighbors. Together, we will save lives this summer, get more people into housing, and build a better community for all of us."<br><br>The City and the County divided funding for the project through American Rescue Plan Act funds. The City of Phoenix contributed $2.6 million, and the County contributed more than $2 million.<br><br>“With homelessness increasing across the region, we need to address both the immediate and long-term needs of individuals and communities. This partnership achieves that," said Maricopa County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Gates, Supervisor for District 3. “First, it provides shelter that will literally save lives during the intense summer heat. Second, it connects people experiencing homelessness to resources that can help them find jobs and permanent housing." <br><br>The heat relief location will be open and operating through this joint funding model through October 31, 2022, with the goal of the City continuing year-round operations through 2024.<br><br>Learn more about how to manage the extreme heat of summer visit <a target="_blank" href="/heatsite">Phoenix.gov/HeatSite</a> and <a target="_blank" href="http://www.heataz.org/">HeatAZ.org</a>. <br><br>Find cooling stations and water through the Heat Relief Network: <a target="_blank" href="https://hrn.azmag.gov/">https://hrn.azmag.gov</a>​<span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/humanservicesVideo
Critical Incident Briefing: May 1, 2022 – 19th Avenue and Southernhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/2351Police5/13/2022 9:49:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/HC2wOINZOnMCritical Incident Briefing: May 1, 2022 – 19th Avenue and Southern<div class="ExternalClass66119E6225964D719E64467797E4FE36"><html>​The Phoenix Police Department has released a Critical Incident Briefing (CIB) video that includes audio, visuals and information related to an officer-involved shooting (OIS) which occurred on May 1, 2022.<br><br>This incident occurred in the area of 19th Avenue and Southern Avenue. An officer was at a gas station in the area, working through an unrelated call for service, when he was notified by a community member about a man nearby who was waiving a machete. The officer saw the adult male suspect walk south along 19th Avenue on the sidewalk waving the machete around, before eventually walking into a vacant dirt lot. The officer called for backup and tried to keep the suspect contained to the dirt lot, away from any other community members.<br><br>The second officer arrived on scene and positioned herself and her vehicle between the suspect and 19th Avenue in an attempt to keep him away from the roadway, which was busy with vehicle and pedestrian traffic. The suspect ignored the officer and continued walking southbound along 19th Avenue, and eventually into the roadway.<br><br>The third officer to arrive on scene retrieved a less lethal stunbag shotgun from his patrol vehicle before approaching the suspect. He gave multiple commands for the suspect to drop the weapon, and then used the stunbag shotgun when the suspect approached him. The stunbag rounds had minimal effect on the suspect, causing him only to pause for a moment before advancing toward the officer again. At this point, the officer dropped the stunbag and fired his duty weapon, striking the suspect and causing him to fall to the ground.  <br><br>When the suspect fell to the ground, he dropped the machete. Officers were able to move it away as they approached him to take him into custody and begin first-aid. The officers continued to provide aid until the Phoenix Fire Department arrived and assumed care before transporting the suspect to a local hospital for treatment.<br><br>The suspect remains hospitalized, and upon release, will be booked into jail for aggravated assault on a police officer.<br><br>The officer involved in this shooting has been with the department for 2 years and is assigned to the South Mountain Precinct.<br><br>Conclusions about whether the actions of the officers are consistent with department policy and the law will not be made until all facts are known and the investigation is complete. An internal investigation by the Professional Standard Bureau is currently underway, in addition to a criminal investigation. Once the criminal investigation is complete it will then be reviewed by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.<br> <br>Public records law required redaction of certain personal identifying information before video is released publicly. That is why you may see some parts of Body Worn Camera (BWC) blurred or covered with a black box. Redacted video is released to local media in conjunction with the release of this Critical Incident Briefing for independent review and publication. Complete, unedited versions of the BWC are released to attorneys and the courts as evidence in a criminal case.<br><br></html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
