South Phoenix neighbors push to stop Central Avenue light-rail expansion

By Jessica Boehm | The Republic

Despite a Phoenix City Council defeat in April, south Phoenix residents are not giving up their efforts to derail a proposed six-mile light-rail extension down Central Avenue.

More than 200 residents recently crammed into a gymnasium at the South Mountain Community Center to protest the extension that they believe will bankrupt businesses and bring crime to their neighborhoods.

For more than an hour, residents questioned why the city would spend so much money on something they did not want, shared fears of heightened criminal activity and brainstormed ways to make their point to the City Council.
