Residents are invited to shape the future of development along Phoenix’s light rail system by participating in a two-week Reinvent PHX community design workshop. Reinvent PHX is a community-based planning effort to create walkable communities by guiding future development along the Phoenix light rail system.
The “opening event” is set for 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, March 24, and the “closing event” will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 4. Both events will take place at the Phoenix Financial Center, 3443 N. Central Ave.
During the two-week workshop, residents are invited to provide input any time between the hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. or online at myplanphx.com. District plans create a guide for investments in streets, parks, housing and business development based on a community vision for the future.
The opening event will provide initial input on designs for walkable communities along the light rail between downtown Phoenix and Bethany Home Road/Christown Spectrum Mall. The closing event will feature designs drafted for this area, based on public input..
Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is a method for building and preserving communities with the goal of making walking, bicycling and using public transit safe, convenient and comfortable for daily living. This effort will be a model for developing other walkable communities along future light rail corridors
