Grandview Message Boards: Resilient PHX funded the installation of three message boards in the Grandview Neighborhood to bridge the communication gap with low-income and elderly residents, and renters in multi-family housing. The goal of the message boards is to share information as democratically as possible, fostering a community culture of inclusiveness and resilience. The message boards play the role of a community newsletter, and the Grandview Neighborhood Association has seen an increase in attendance and a more diverse group of attendees at meetings and neighborhood events.
Grand Avenue Curb Cut/ Raingarden: Resilient PHX is funding a green infrastructure project proposed by the Grand Avenue Merchants Association and a group of skilled volunteers. The goals of the curb cut/ rain garden are to mitigate the issues caused by nuisance rainwater and street flooding, enhance the avenue's appearance and walkability, and create a green space and shade coverage. This project addresses the priorities of the City's Master Tree and Shade Plan and the Complete Streets Plan.
Triangle Tree Planting: In 2016, Resilient PHX funded a community-led tree planting project in the Triangle Neighborhood in central Phoenix. The community leader conducted outreach to low-income residents in the neighborhood and organized a group of 30 residents to plant and maintain trees along streets that were previously without any shade coverage. 30 trees were planted, making the streets more walkable and mitigating the urban "heat island" effect. This project addressed the goals of the City of Phoenix 2050 Sustainability Goals and the Tree and Shade Master Plan.
