View 32 plays host for firefighters

Out with the old, in with the new. But before new View 32 homes would be built the local fire department was able to enjoy the old building.

Watt Communities gave the vacant office/retail space to Phoenix Firefighters for a unique training operation. Phoenix firefighters were able to kick, drag and drill through interiors as part of a real time emergency.

“It gave us a realistic setting with an important benefit: we could break down walls, conduct a roof attack that coordinated our Engines and Ladder companies, and complete other exercises that firefighters have to execute regularly on actual emergency calls.”- Phoenix Fire Department Battalion Chief Mark Huff

Final note from Councilman Gates

Final note from Councilman Gates

 

As Phoenix Councilman Bill Gates parted from our District 3 neighborhood to run for Maricopa County Board of Supervisors on May 31 he left behind a lasting impact of renewal in our community of North 32nd Street.

 

 

“The revitalization project of North 32nd street in District 3 has been one of my priorities as a councilman and I’m proud of the success and continued community involvement we’ve had along the North 32nd Street Corridor”- writes Councilman Gates in an OP Ed piece in the Arizona Republic June 2, 2016.

In the article Councilman Gates speaks of the visible changes that have already taken place along 32nd Street such as the community signage, road diet, and influx of business including Original Breakfast House, Karsten’s Ace Hardware, and Home Fur Good.  And as North 32nd Street continues to thrive we look forward to new businesses and housing projects.

“This revitalization effort has been a wonderful opportunity to reach new residents who now feel they can share input, complaints, concerns, and recommendations with the city.  With the level of community involvement along the North 32nd Corridor, we will enjoy continued reinvestment in the area.  We’ll know we’ve really made it when Fox Restaurant Concepts, Upward Projects, or LGO Hospitality opens a restaurant along North 32nd.”

Thank you, Councilman Gates.
It was a great honor to work with you to support our North 32nd Street Neighborhood.
