Phoenix Arizona – All American City by quotes

It’s official: Phoenix Arizona is an All-America City – for the fifth time. National Civic League judges today chose the city as one of 10 winners of the prestigious, nationwide competition. Phoenix was one of 29 finalists presenting at the 2009 All-America City Awards in Tampa Bay this week. Phoenix is the only Arizona winner or finalist for the 60th annual awards.

A committee of approximately 60 people worked collaboratively on the presentation and award application, including 40 community members and 20 city employees. Phoenix highlighted newly developed urban education campuses (ASU Downtown Phoenix Campus and Phoenix Biomedical Campus) providing an economic boost, parks and land preservation strategies and the city’s innovative library teen spaces. The awards called for innovative, recent projects that meet major challenges and include the community in the process.

Participants were barred from using video, PowerPoint and visuals other than simple poster boards during their oral presentations.

“We are honored and proud for America’s fifth-largest city to be named an All-America City for the fifth time,” said Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon. “Our collaborative, progressive projects have improved education and the economy downtown, saved thousands of acres of open space, renovated and built neighborhood parks and provided unique spaces just for teens at all of our libraries. Working with the community means that everyone in Phoenix has a chance to help shape the future of our All-America City.”

The Phoenix delegation included Mayor Gordon, Councilmembers Michael Johnson and Michael Nowakowski, City Manager Frank Fairbanks and Deputy City Manager Rick Naimark, along with community members representing the highlighted projects. Others presenting: a student from ASU’s Cronkite School and a medical student from the UA College of Medicine – Phoenix in Partnership with ASU; two teen Phoenix Public Library volunteers; business representatives from Latino Vibe radio, which supports library teen reading programs, and the Roosevelt Row Community Development Corporation; a Phoenix Parks and Recreation Board member; a young adult who has worked and volunteered for Phoenix Parks and Recreation; and a senior who is a founding member of the Sunnyslope Village Alliance.

No tax dollars were used for any expenses. US Airways, FedEx Express, SuperShuttle, the Greater Phoenix Convention & Visitors Bureau and the Downtown Phoenix Partnership all donated to the effort. The Phoenix Parks and Conservation Foundation and Friends of the Phoenix Public Library also supported the delegation.

Phoenix previously won the All-America City Award in 1950, 1958, 1980 and 1989. It is the country’s most prestigious community recognition award, honoring communities of all sizes for collaborative projects addressing critical issues.

A popular and unique way to take City government directly to its
residents.

For the third straight year, the City of Mesa will be conducting “City Hall at the Mall” Saturday, May 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Fiesta
Mall.

Several City of Mesa departments, including Transportation, Development and Sustainability, Neighborhood Services, Library, Water Resources and Energy Resources will have displays and information set up in Fiesta Mall’s Center Court.

Outside Fiesta Mall, Mesa Police, Mesa Fire and the Solid Waste Management Division will have displays in the south parking lot between Dillard’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods. The displays will include an emergency command van, crime prevention van, police cruiser, fire engine, ambulance and collection truck.

“This is a great opportunity for Mesa residents to learn more about the variety of services the City offers,” Mesa City Manager Chris Brady said.
“They can pick up information on everything from water and energy conservation to summer programs for kids to a list of upcoming events at the Mesa Arts Center and our City museums. This event has been popular the past two years at Fiesta Mall and I am confident this year’s City Hall at the Mall will be just as successful.”

Besides the City displays, representatives from Fiesta Mall will have a table in Center Court to discuss redevelopment news, including information about the new Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods and In-N-Out Burger at the mall.

Attendees will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a $200 Westcor gift card, as well as participate in a raffle for several prizes, including tickets from Arizona Diamondbacks, ASU, City museums and nearby restaurants.
