Bednarek has been with the City for more than 20 years, 15 of those years with the Planning and Development Department.</span><br> <p>“I am honored to serve as Director of the Planning and Development Department for the City of Phoenix," said Bednarek. “I am excited to lead our incredible team in collaboration with our community to make Phoenix an even greater city."</p> <p>During his time with Planning and Development, Josh oversaw the creation of the City's <a target="_blank" href="/pdd/tod">Transit-Oriented Development</a> policy framework for expanding the light rail system and the related Walkable Urban Code, which supports pedestrian-friendly amenities, business opportunities and more diverse housing options. He oversaw the update of the City's General Plan in 2015, and as Director will oversee the current process of the 2025 update to that plan that will go before voters in November of 2024.   </p> <p>Over the last five years, Josh has been promoted to Deputy Director and then Assistant Director within the department. During this time, Josh led the transition of Planning and Development's public meetings and hearings to virtual formats. He and his team members updated several sections of the Zoning Ordinance including an expansion of the Walkable Urban Code, enhancements to landscape requirements to address the City's tree and shade goals, and the allowance for interior suites with cooking facilities in new residential subdivisions. </p> <p>Josh has a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from the University of Arizona and a Master's Degree in Urban and Environmental Planning from Arizona State University.</p> <p>​ </p> <span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span> <p> <br> </p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/pddNews
Pueblo Grande Museum Opens New Exhibit in Time for Super Bowl Weekendhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/2649Parks and Recreation2/6/2023 10:50:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2649/The-Zuni-World-Exhibit.jpgPueblo Grande Museum Opens New Exhibit in Time for Super Bowl Weekend<div class="ExternalClass9E372231FAC74E40AB069E2E7E283AD5"><html> <p>Phoenix residents and visitors in town for Super Bowl are invited to stop by the <a href="https://pueblogrande.org/" target="_blank">Pueblo Grande Museum</a> on Thursday, Feb. 9 from 7-8 p.m. to celebrate the opening of their new exhibit, <em>A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne: The Zuni World.</em><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> </span></p> <p>The exhibit, on loan from the <a href="http://www.ashiwi-museum.org/" target="_blank">A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center</a>, uses art as a means for mapping and has become a metaphor for the power of maps. Maps act as a physical expression of one's place in the world and the universe.<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> </span></p> <p>Over time, the Zuni world has been remapped, with names changed, boundaries drawn, and cultural presence erased. The Zuni World exhibit challenges these assumptions through 31 artistic representations of Zuni maps and places in the Southwest.<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> </span></p> <p>Representatives from the A:shiwi A:wan Museum and Heritage Center will give a presentation about the exhibit. The presentation will discuss how the A:shiwi/Zuni people continue to carry on the importance of the land their ancestry migrated through and understand their identity is connected to the landscapes that color the region.<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;"> </span></p> <p> <em>A:shiwi A:wan Ulohnanne: The Zuni World </em>will be on display at Pueblo Grande Museum from Feb. 9- Sept. 17.<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parksNews
Take a Bite Out of Phoenix: City of Phoenix Partners with Local First Arizona to Celebrate Local Foodhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/environmental-programs/2648Environment & Sustainability2/3/2023 3:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2648/downtown phoenix.JPGTake a Bite Out of Phoenix: City of Phoenix Partners with Local First Arizona to Celebrate Local Food<div class="ExternalClass3669C6E761BB4CD8AAA863BA947B4852"><html> <p>​<span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">J</span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">ust </span><span style="background-color:window;color:windowtext;font-size:10pt;">in time for Super Bowl, the City of Phoenix Office of Environmental Programs and Local First Arizona are teaming up to launch its Phoenix: Let's Eat Local! campaign on Feb. 4 celebrating local restaurant owners, farmers, advocates and more to help build stronger food systems in Phoenix communities.</span></p> <p>“I can't think of a better time to launch this campaign," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “There are so many incredible local restaurants in Phoenix that I hope visitors will be able to try while they are here for the big game. Eating local is the ultimate way to get a taste of what Phoenix is about." </p> <p>Several areas were selected to highlight during the campaign due to the diversity of the Phoenix food scene. Roosevelt Row, Melrose, and Grand offer a well-known food community in the downtown Phoenix area, while Miracle Mile continues to emerge. South Phoenix, Maryvale, Eastlake Park and Nuestro Barrios Unidos features unique local neighborhood character and diversity in population.</p> <p>As a part of the campaign's initiative, the City of Phoenix is working towards making sure all residents have access to affordable, healthy local food options. On March 4, 2020, Mayor Kate Gallego and Phoenix City Council approved the 2025 Phoenix Food Action Plan, which features a goal to offer healthy food for all by 2050. </p> <p>“When residents support local food, they are supporting Phoenix communities as well as contributing to a more sustainable city," said Environmental Programs Administrator Nancy Allen. “When Phoenix businesses work together to produce, process and distribute food locally, they are also helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions."</p> <p>In addition to connecting residents with local food options, the Phoenix Food Systems Program helps connect Phoenix residents with local farmers and food business owners with resources to grow food and operate a more sustainable business. It also empowers residents by educating them on how to grow their own produce. </p> <p>Residents can learn more about the Phoenix: Let's Eat Local! campaign and see a directory of local eateries in various Phoenix areas by visiting <a href="/oep/phxeatlocal" target="_blank">phoenix.gov/oep/PHXeatlocal​</a>. ​<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/oepNews
