The city of Phoenix is facing a steep budget shortfall, which means that many city services likely will be impacted.

The city manager has proposed a budget that includes cuts to community centers, senior centers, pools and after-school PAC programs.

Residents are invited to a series of Community Budget Hearings in April to share what’s important to them, as well as offer suggestions for increasing revenue to the city’s General Fund.

Upcoming budget hearings include:
• 10 a.m. Thursday, April 3, Devonshire Senior Center, 2802 E. Devonshire Ave.
• 6 p.m. Thursday, April 10, Madison School District Office Board Room, 5601 N. 16th St.
• 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, April 13, Sunnyslope Community Center, 802 E. Vogel Ave.
• 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 16 at in Singer Hall at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central Ave.
