Have you noticed graffiti around your neighborhood?  That could be an ominous sign.  You want more information about it and how to eliminate it?

While it may be easy to ignore or think that graffiti is not a severe problem, it must get reported to local law enforcement as soon as it occurs. In the City of Phoenix, there are three ways you can report graffiti:

  1. If you see graffiti happening, call 9-1-1
  2. To report graffiti, call Crime Stop at 602-262-6151 or visit Phoenix.gov/AtYourService
  3. To request graffiti removal, call Graffiti Busters at 602-534-4444 or email blight@phoenix.gov

The Cactus Wren Block Watch (CWBW) has partnered with our precinct to help our CAO’s obtain things the city is not able to provide for them.  One of the items is a 10 foot tall inflatable officer, a pop-up to provide shade and other items used in community-relations.  The CWBW is proud to be able to help out wherever they are able.  Here are a couple of pictures from the delivery to the precinct on March 3, 2021.

 

The Cactus Park Community Alliance

Welcomes Ann O’Brien

It is my honor and privilege to be elected as the Phoenix City Councilwoman representing District 1. I look forward to my inauguration on April 19, 2021. 

Born and raised in Phoenix, I am a graduate of Greenway High School and Arizona State University. My husband, Terry, and I raised our two children in North Phoenix; Amanda, who is a high school math teacher, and Thomas, who is a mechanical engineering student at Northern Arizona University.  

While raising Amanda and Thomas, I began to volunteer in my children’s school and serve as President of the Stetson Hills PTSA which led me to substitute teaching and coaching junior high softball. In 2014 and 2018 I ran and won a seat on the Deer Valley USD school board. A focus on the school board was a crucial realignment of school boundaries to ensure every student in the district has the resources they need to succeed. My community advocacy continued with Julie Read in the effort to keep homeless sex offenders from being housed in our neighborhoods, serving on the Deer Valley Village Planning Committee for three years, and advocating for a new fire station in North Phoenix.

I decided to run for the Phoenix City Council because I passionately believe in the power of bringing people together to solve problems – to find common ground in service of our community. I am proud of my record, and look forward to continuing to tackle the serious issues facing our community. 

My priorities on the City Council include: 

  • Protect public safety by ensuring our police officers and firefighters have every tool they need to do their jobs so that we can lower response times and save more lives. We must also invest in training, equipment, and comprehensive safety measures, as well as making sure our community centers and recreation programs serve as strong community hubs. 
  • Make our neighborhoods safer and healthier places to raise a family. Strengthening our neighborhoods was why I entered public service, and will focus on ensuring everyone can access great local schools and high-quality jobs, enjoy well-maintained parks and roads, and feel safe at home. 
  • Strengthen our economy by attracting more high-quality employers like State Farm and USAA to Phoenix, while seeking out new employers that offer the high-tech, high-wage careers of the future. 

I look forward to meeting you and working with all residents to strengthen the future for our neighborhoods, our district and our city.

Heads-up folks, this message from the City of Phoenix:

Attention City of Phoenix Water Services customers: Phoenix Water Services customers have received notices at their home with the information to call back to schedule a time to allow someone to enter their homes to check the quality of their water. This is a scam!

#PHXWater employees do not go door to door to check on the quality of your water and they will not enter your home.

Never allow anyone to enter your home without verifying who they are. If you have any questions regarding City Services or want to verify any notices you receive, you may call Phoenix Customer Services Monday – Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 602-266-6251.
