Central City is unique among the villages because its core is downtown, the urban center for the entire city. Downtown Phoenix, with its many government, business and cultural facilities, is the focal point of the expanding metropolitan region. Many of the oldest neighborhoods in Phoenix surround the downtown. Some are designated historic districts and contain fine architecture and tree-lined streets. Most have strong neighborhood organizations that work on improvement efforts to enhance an old-fashioned neighborhood environment. Central City Village is a government and employment center; a transportation hub including freeways, public transit and Sky Harbor International Airport; and an exciting cultural, recreational and convention center.
The Central City Village Planning Committee generally meets the 2nd Monday of the month at 6:00 p.m. at Emerson Court - Phoenix Elementary School District, 1817 N 7th Street (SEC 7th Street and Palm Lane). The committee will alter from this schedule in 2017 for one meeting: Monday, October 16 (3rd rather than 2nd Monday). Please consult the public meeting notices page for an agenda to confirm that the meeting will occur.
