Phoenix Celebrates Completion of 3rd and 5th Avenues Improvement Projecthttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phxtv/2169PHXTV12/10/2021 11:30:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/aNH6YI1Xh7MPhoenix Celebrates Completion of 3rd and 5th Avenues Improvement Project<div class="ExternalClass810290B0266345A5BA2E350F573425DE"><html> <p>​<span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span><span style="color:rgb(13, 13, 13);font-family:roboto, noto, sans-serif;font-size:15px;white-space:pre-wrap;">Finished in phases throughout 2021 and fully realized on November 23, the project added improved and safer bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure on both roadways between Washington Street and McDowell Road. The project also improves traffic circulation around the downtown area by converting both 3rd and 5th avenues from one-way to two-way traffic between Washington and Roosevelt streets. Community input and engagement helped the city’s Street Transportation team design a project that recognizes and meets the changing needs of downtown road users. A highlight of the project is that it features the city’s first two-way protected bicycle lane, located along 3rd Avenue between Roosevelt Street and McDowell Road. A future project on 3rd and 5th Avenues north of McDowell Road will continue the two-way protected bicycle lanes up to Thomas Road. Other improvements along both streets include upgraded traffic signals, landscaping enhancements, the addition of shade structures, and new pavement and roadway striping. </span>​​<span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span><br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/phxtvVideophxtvPHXTV

100 Year Old City Flag will be on display at Phoenix City Hallhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phxtv/2149PHXTV11/23/2021 9:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/SGGFvXW5IRA100 Year Old City Flag will be on display at Phoenix City Hall<div class="ExternalClassBD395F3A25984F56A4F0EEA3F315207C"><html> <span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">In 1921 Phoenix was a small city of 48,000 and residents were optimistic about the future. Phoenicians felt they needed a symbol of their prosperity and so the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce conducted a contest to design what would become the official flag of the city of Phoenix. The winning design is a 52-inch by 66-inch rectangle of heavy grade soft blue silk taffeta with an orange fringe. Embroidered in the center is a Phoenix bird over a gold flame sunburst background. A white ribbon scroll at the bottom is embroidered with the legend, “City of Phoenix, Arizona." Back in 1921 the flag cost $175.</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">“Just like the Phoenix Rising, our flag is on display again, reminding us of the history of our great city," said Mayor Kate Gallego, during the unveiling of the flag in the Phoenix City Hall atrium. “It's a time to celebrate the accomplishments of the city of Phoenix. Our history helps us build and move towards our future."</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">The city of Phoenix official flag is considered a public record and the Phoenix City Clerk Office is in charge of taking care of it.</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">“The city of Phoenix flag was adopted by ordinance on Nov. 23, 1921 and it has been under the care of the City Clerk Office," said City Clerk Denise Archibald. “We ensure that the flag is kept in a safe and secure environment that's conducive to its preservation and conservation. Now we are here celebrating the 100-year anniversary of this flag. It will be on display at City Hall in the atrium between Nov. 23 and the end of December. Then it will come back to the City Clerk Office for safekeeping. I believe next year we will go ahead and try to maintain the flag, as we usually do, and have some conservation efforts completed on it just to make sure that it's always preserved and in a good state."</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">Much like the mythical Phoenix bird, the first official city of Phoenix flag has risen again from the dust of time.</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">“I think the flag is beautiful," said Archibald. “The history is rich and we're just proud to be able to keep it safe and in good condition and will continue to do so for many years to come. I'm just excited that we have this opportunity to celebrate its 100-year anniversary."​​<br></p> <span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span> <br> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/phxtvVideophxtvPHXTV
