What makes a city successful? What gives one community that edge over another? Avondale’s Office of Economic Development and Tourism shares the answers to those questions through an exciting digital tv series, aptly titled Avondale Edge, which launches on Tuesday, August 3.
The nine-episode series will be shared across the city’s many social media platforms, as well on Avondale’s Channel 11, available to Cox subscribers. Produced in partnership with former news anchor and media personality Carey Pena and her company Inspired Media 360, the Avondale Edge series’ high-energy, informative videos tell the Avondale story as its happening now – from the city’s incredible housing boom and the attraction of new innovative companies to how local businesses successfully navigated the pandemic. One episode in the series, titled Champions Race in Avondale, details the excitement surrounding Phoenix Raceway and Avondale as the Home of the NASCAR Championship Weekend.
“With all the growth and development taking place in Avondale right now, we felt it was important to capture that momentum through this series and share it with a much larger audience,” said Ken Chapa, Avondale’s Economic Development and Tourism Director. “In the first episode, you’ll hear from city leadership, including Mayor Weise and City Manager Charles Montoya, on why Avondale is so focused on bringing the right mix of new business, employment, and housing into the city, as well as why it’s so important to take care of the businesses that are already here.”
