Recently, the city of Phoenix received a $25,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts that it will be using it to redesign a Downtown street to improve pedestrian accessibility to the market! An artist/design team will be redesigning the block of Pierce Street in front of the market from Central Avenue to 1st Street.
