The City of Phoenix Wants Your Feedback on the Transportation 2050 Program https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/public-transit/969Public Transit2/20/2020 5:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/969/Newsroom_PublicTransit_018.jpgThe City of Phoenix Wants Your Feedback on the Transportation 2050 Program <div class="ExternalClass32D19B19844D45E5B9AFDE82D9605472"><html> <p> The voter-approved <a href="https://www.t2050.org/" target="_blank">Transportation 2050 (T2050)</a> transit and streets program continues to move forward, and the city of Phoenix wants to hear from you. Be sure to fill out the <a href="https://www.westgroupresearch.com/Phoenix2050" target="_blank">T2050 survey</a>, where you can comment on transportation improvements including bus service, bus shelters, streets and sidewalks by February 28, 2020. <br></p> <p>If you've been able to take advantage of some of the progress, this is your chance to provide input. And don't worry if you aren't familiar with the improvements - The Phoenix Public Transit and Street Transportation departments have compiled an <a href="/streetssite/Documents/2019_T2050_Progress_Report_3_ENGLISH.pdf" target="_blank">annual progress report </a>to showcase the various achievements made so far. The highly visual report exemplifies the city's continued commitment to ensuring accountability, transparency and tracking measurable goals in the delivery of T2050 programs and projects. </p> <p> <br>The report also provides detailed financial information on everything related to street and transportation improvements in an easy-to-navigate format. <br><br>Progress highlighted in Public Transit includes increased bus service every 30 minutes on all bus routes, 15-minute frequency on most Phoenix core routes, new bus shelters, a new 50th Street light rail station and added RAPID service throughout Phoenix. <br><br>The T2050 Street Transportation Department progress includes repaving more than 400 miles of city streets, preservation treatments on 1,400 miles of city and neighborhood streets, adding more than 141 miles of new bicycle lanes and 27 miles of new sidewalks and replacing 1,450 street lights and nearly 2,900 illuminated street signs. <br><br>Feedback from our residents and riders is a critical part of the process, so make sure to fill it out this survey before February 28. <br><br>The T2050 complete report is available on the program progress webpage, <a href="https://www.t2050.org/" target="_blank">T2050.org</a>. The <a href="https://www.westgroupresearch.com/Phoenix2050" target="_blank">T2050 online survey is available here</a>.<br><br>About Transportation 2050: In Aug. 2015, Phoenix voters approved Transportation 2050 (T2050), a 35-year citywide transportation plan. T2050 is overseen by the Citizens Transportation Commission and includes improved frequency on local bus service, new light rail service and stations and major street improvement projects. Funding for T2050 comes from a 7/10ths of a cent city sales tax that started Jan. 1, 2016. Over the life of the plan, the funds are estimated to generate about $16.7 billion, or more than half of the plan's overall cost. There will be an additional $14.8 billion in federal and county funds, passenger fares and other sources.

Close Friends Remember Commander Killed in the Line of Dutyhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/police/1105Police 4/1/2020 11:00:00 PMhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIcxAN1UN-0Close Friends Remember Commander Killed in the Line of Duty<div class="ExternalClassEF681DB33C964E40A7BD01E6081C34F0"><html> <p>​Sunday's deadly shooting of a Phoenix Police Commander is leaving an unthinkable hole in the department and in his family. <br><br>Charmane Osborn, a lieutenant with the Phoenix Police Department, worked with Commander Greg Carnicle for about 20 years. Greg was her boss twice, as well as good family friends. <br><br>"He has that stern look a lot of the time, and once you got to know him, you knew what a true softy he really was," Lt. Osborn said. "He had this dry sense of humor that would tell jokes."<br><br>Lt. Osborn said Commander Carnicle was tough, decisive, and led from the front. <a href="/newsroom/police/1098" target="_blank">Which is exactly what he was doing on that final Sunday shift where he went first, followed by two younger officers, into a home for a domestic fight call</a>. All three were shot, but only the younger two officers survived. <br><br>Lt. Osborn said the commander was always looking out for the best interests of the Phoenix Police Department. <br><br>"I actually talked with Greg last Tuesday night," Lt. Osborn explained through tears. "He was encouraging me to make sure I was going to take the commander's process and test. Just ever supportive and trying to ensure that I was making smart career choices."   <br><br>Behind the badge was a caring family man, Osborn explained. Commander Carnicle was married to his wife, Ann, and together, had four children: CiCi, Rachel, John, and Veronica. He also had four grandchildren and two more on the way. <br><br>"So devoted to his family and making sure that his kids knew that he loved them and that he was involved in their lives by coaching sports, coaching his grandson," the lieutenant explained. <br><br>In the last few years, the growing Carnicle family had the chance to go on a cruise together and attend numerous Diamondbacks games – Greg was a big fan. <br><br>As his family, friends, and the force mourn this loss, Lt. Osborn said she knows what Commander Carnicle would say if he could.<br><br>"He would be like 'What are you doing? There's no crying in police work. Suck it up buttercup!'" Lt. Osborn smiled, "This is how we do this. Keep going. Carry the mission forward." <br><br><a target="_blank" href="/newsroom/police/1103">Read more about Commander Carnicle's 31 year career with the Phoenix Police Department.</a></p> </html></div>https://phoenix.gov/policeVideo
​April 1 is Census Day! Have You Been Counted?https://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/article/1104Articles and Features4/1/2020 7:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1104/Census Day 2020.jpg​April 1 is Census Day! Have You Been Counted?<div class="ExternalClass5D742A53467E4C10B4BC24CC3091C557"><html> <p>​With all the other news happening, one important date still needs to be on your calendar: Today, April 1, is Census Day in the United States, and participating is one of the easiest ways you can support the city of Phoenix, just by filling out the online Census form.</p><p>You should have already received a code in the mail that you can use to complete the Census form for your household online at <a target="_blank" href="https://my2020census.gov">My2020census.gov</a>. You’ll be asked basic demographic questions about your household, including how many people are living in the home; if your home is owned or rented, and about the age, sex, race, and relationships of the people who are in the household.</p><p>“Participation in the Census is critical for Phoenix, because it impacts our funding across so many areas for years to come,” said Albert Santana, the city’s Census Director. “The form only takes ten minutes to complete, so it is one of the simplest ways to ensure that we have the resources we need to operate.”</p><p>In Phoenix, an accurate 2020 Census count represents $533 per person, or approximately $866 million a year.  This funding helps to provide vital resources, programs and services such as housing, transportation, education, public safety, and so much more. </p><p>The city of Phoenix has been working in partnership with the Maricopa Association of Governments to encourage participation in the 2020 Census through a local campaign, called iCount2020. The campaign highlights the ways that an accurate count in the census supports local governments, and provides information on how to respond to the census online, by phone or by mail; what residents should look for when receiving communication from the federal government about the Census; and a variety of Frequently-Asked-Questions. More information is available at <a target="_blank" href="https://iCount2020.info">iCount2020.info</a>.<br></p><div>You can also help the city of Phoenix by encouraging your friends and family to participate. ​​Share these Census posts on <a target="_blank" href="https://www.facebook.com/CityofPhoenixAZ/videos/239617010497710/">Facebook​</a>, and <a href="https://twitter.com/CityofPhoenixAZ/status/1245414443049201665" target="_blank">Twitter​</a>!​<br></div> </html></div>News
