Making sure the original light rail line got built didn’t signal an end to PCA’s commitment to mass transit projects. When Prop 104–an initiative that aimed to boost sales tax for transit from .04 to .07 for a 35-year commitment–went before voters in 2015, PCA was a major force in the campaign, advocating to its membership and beyond that for Phoenix to become a world-class city, expanding our transit and increasing pedestrian connectivity was paramount. Prop 104 passed by a comfortable margin and those tax dollars will help pay for new light rail routes, expanded bus service, street repairs and transit infrastructure.
"As a long time member of Phoenix Community Alliance, it is especially gratifying to see how diverse the revitalization and development projects are in the Central Phoenix Corridor. The heart of Phoenix is alive and well".
"PCA is striving to complement city - building with community building...bringing in new voices - residents, neighborhoods, and businesses large and small - for a stronger, more inclusive alliance of the Phoenix community".
"I would never consider dropping my membership".
"I have been honored to be involved as an Executive Board member of the PCA for over 20 years. Our organization has been in the trenches to help promote Downtown Phoenix as a destination area where people can live, work and play. If you are a stakeholder in downtown Phoenix I urge you to get involved with the PCA organization as this is the organization that is at the pulse of all the downtown activities of development, marketing, cultural and business development. As the Chairman of the Central City planning and development committee I am so excited about the future of downtown and can't wait to be a part of the next 20 years of Downtown Phoenix Transformation!!"
"During central Phoenix's "lean times," the Phoenix Community Alliance focused on city-building to help fill-in key puzzle pieces like the Arizona Center, Convention Center, downtown and midtown high-rises, Steele Indian School Park, light rail, and the presence of higher education, among others. After the Great Recession and the current revitalization cycle, PCA is striving to complement city-building with community building... bringing in new voices – residents, neighborhoods, and businesses large and small – for a stronger, more inclusive alliance of the Phoenix community".
