One of the Valley’s fastest growing communities is Phoenix’s west side. In November 2004, the Phoenix City Council approved the West Phoenix Revitalization Strategy and committed $1 million to community improvement efforts. Phoenix’s Neighborhood Services Department is taking several steps to improve this area. Phoenix District 5 Councilman Claude Mattox and Suzanne Thraen, Tomahawk Village Block Watch, talk about how these improvements have impacted the community and look at one of the programs being used in neighborhoods.
