Planning and Development Staff Fast-Track Development Fighting COVID-19https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/planning-and-development/1728Planning and Development1/28/2021 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1728/langham storage.jpgPlanning and Development Staff Fast-Track Development Fighting COVID-19<div class="ExternalClass5AA28F5B0FE9452D91DB33D5CDD56C23"><html> <p>The state of Arizona continues to receive hundreds of thousands of COVID vaccines, and as more are on the way the need for the proper storage is essential.</p><p> The city of Phoenix Planning and Developme<span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span>nt Department has been vital to getting the storage facilities up and running  with very specific requirements. The Pfizer vaccine requires cold storage at minus 94 degrees F, far lower than the typical freezers in use at medical centers for other vaccines. Planning and Development staff expedited the reviews and inspections for both Mayo Clinic Hospital and Langham Logistics. Mayo had to make some significant electrical upgrades to add 10 new freezers to its vaccine storage system. The plan review process, which is normally performed in-house, was accommodated in the field. The city's Planning and Development staff helped contractors work through issues and get the approval of plans immediately to get the freezers up and running and ready for shipments. </p> <p>Langham Logistics, located at 7200 W. Roosevelt, is a 64,870 square foot warehouse being converted for cold storage use. The large-scale project requires a fast turnaround for plans and for inspections and staff was able to get the facility running under a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy while other items are being finalized.</p> <p>“It is not just the vaccine, it is everything related to the pandemic," said Phoenix Building Official Stephen Dudley. “The urgency and scale of the COVID-19 pandemic have required the city of Phoenix Planning and Development Department staff to respond quickly to projects at every phase of the pandemic, including setting up testing sites, building research labs, upgrades to hospital facilities and construction of vaccine cold storage facilities. Our staff has taken great pride in their work on these projects and the contributions they are making to fight this pandemic, knowing the work they do is aimed at saving lives."  </p> <p>Over the past several months, staff has also been working to expedite a COVID-19 research lab at 5020 N. Black Canyon and an N95 mask manufacturing facility at 2145 S. 7th Street.</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/pddNewsplanning-and-developmentPDD

Phoenix Planning and Development Department Launches New On-line Services for Short-term Vacation Rental Property Registrations and Searcheshttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/planning-and-development/1614Planning and Development11/6/2020 4:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1614/newsroom image.jpgPhoenix Planning and Development Department Launches New On-line Services for Short-term Vacation Rental Property Registrations and Searches<div class="ExternalClass2C3B66A710F548C098B19B0D74C531C0"><html> <p>​Searching for or registering a short-term vacation rental property in Phoenix is a lot easier now, thanks to a new online self-registration portal. The city of Phoenix's Planning and Development Department just launched the portal that will make the registration process more efficient for property owners. It will also make it easier to find rentals and the owner's emergency contact information by surrounding property owners should there be management issues. </p> <p>In 2019, the Arizona Legislature authorized municipalities to create provisions for short-term vacation rentals (Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S. §9-500.39) to help manage them as the law requires all cities to allow them within their city. Phoenix adopted the Short-Term Vacation Rental Ordinance (G-6653) in early 2020, to implement the law passed by the State Legislature. </p> <p>The Short-Term Vacation Rental Ordinance<a href="/pddsite/Documents/ORD6653-G%20_Signed%20Short%20Term%20Vacation%20Rental%20Ordinance.pdf" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"> (ORDINANCE G-6653)</span></a> requires owners of short-term or vacation rentals to register with the city and provide emergency and complaint contact information. The ordinance outlines vacation rental violations and reaffirms prohibited types of uses, such as banquet halls and large parties, and introduces an enhanced penalty structure.</p> <p>Two new features have been added to the website and takes customers directly to the online PHX At Your Service Portal<span style="text-decoration:line-through;">s</span>.  Property owners should visit  <a href="/pdd/codes-ordinances/short-term-rentals" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;">https://www.phoenix.gov/pdd/codes-ordinances/short-term-rentals</span></a> to register their short-term vacation rental property. Neighbors impacted by a short-term vacation rental property should visit that site to find the contact information for the manager of that property to communicate about renter issues.</p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/pddNewsplanning-and-developmentPDD
