The Phoenix City Council will discuss potentially adding $154.8 million to the city’s budget plans. That could include money to build three new neighborhood parks in southwest Phoenix, additional funding for the city’s adaptive reuse program to develop vacant or underutilized properties and additional staffing for the Pueblo Grande Museum.
The council will also discuss the creation and deployment of new city offices and staff to respond to climate change and the region’s extreme summer heat.
The new parks are being looked at for southwest areas of Phoenix which have seen some new growth and development along with some existing neighborhoods that need more community amenities.
The proposals will be discussed at a hearing on May 4.
