•  Workshop Results, 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 20

Design workshops are an intensive collaborative process where the community works with a design team, city staff and others to develop a collective vision for the future of transit-oriented development and produces a plan for the revitalization of the Eastlake-Garfield District.

Reinvent PHX is a community-based planning effort to guide transit-oriented development in five districts along the light rail corridor.  This planning effort will serve as a model for other transit-oriented places along future light rail corridors throughout the city and region.

Reinvent PHX is a collaborative partnership between the city of Phoenix, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Arizona State University, St. Luke’s Health Initiatives and several other local, community-based organizations committed to improving the quality of life in Phoenix.
