Mayor Greg Stanton’s Neighborhood Advisory Committee members will get a first-hand look of best practices and challenges their communities face by touring each other’s neighborhoods.
Beginning Wednesday, neighborhood leaders will take bus tours to each other’s communities, beginning in South Phoenix.
“I’m proud that our neighborhood committee is so dedicated to not only learning about each other’s communities, but also learning from their successes and challenges,” Stanton said. “In Phoenix, we’re all in this together. When one community benefits, we all benefit.”
