Peoria Seeks Community Conversation on Sustainability

Speakers Series, Web Site Aim to Inform Discussions


PEORIA, Ariz. (April 24, 2009) – Peoria is launching two initiatives – a Web page and a lecture series – to promote environmental sustainability.

City leaders believe the community has some important decisions to make and wants to lay the groundwork for an informed debate.

“The overall theme in Peoria is ‘Building Community’ – a community that will last for future generations,” says Deputy City Manager Susan J. Daluddung. “The speakers will give us ideas to help define our path. Decisions we will be making are crucial to our quality of life now and in the years ahead. We need to understand our options, talk them through and get a perspective on how they line up with Peoria’s values.”

Folks can get off to a good start by visiting www.peoriaaz.gov/sustainability to learn what they can do to reduce their effects on the environment, conserve energy and meet their needs without compromising the needs of the future. Among the areas covered are conserving water, reducing paper use and disposing of potentially hazardous household items such as batteries, home electronics or medical waste.

They also can review the steps their city government has taken toward the same goals, such as purchasing cleaner-running city vehicles, modernizing climate-control systems in public buildings and improving water management.

Community Conversations

Adding to that knowledge base will be the Peoria Building Community Speakers Series, featuring presentations and panel discussions with experts in areas related to sustainability. Each of its five sessions – on May 5, June 2, Oct. 6, Nov. 3 and Feb. 2 – will be held at 4 p.m. in the City Hall Pine Room and air live on Peoria Channel 11.

The series will kick off May 5 with a discussion of urban land-use planning and the economics of Peoria’s specific area plans in the regional context. The session will focus on urban design; community planning; regional growth strategies; shaping growth and redevelopment to re-establish a sense of place, scale, history and environmental balance; creating a community that is diverse, mixed-use and pedestrian friendly; and fostering development that provides a range of housing in close proximity to shopping, jobs, recreation and transit – walkable communities that offer realistic housing and transportation choices.

The focus June 2 will be on desert land conservation and connectivity – specifically, how Scottsdale has managed to preserve land, which is one of Peoria’s sustainability goals. The speakers will be officials from Scottsdale and non-profit organizations involved with the McDowell Sonoran Preserve.

The Oct. 6 session will consider multi-modal transportation and economic development. It will focus on planning, engineering/architectural design and programs to promote multiple transportation alternatives. Revitalization topics will include urban design, planning, architecture and program implementation (including the planning process and public outreach).

Community development and housing will be on the agenda Nov. 3. – neighborhood improvement, housing policy, foreclosure prevention and the economic outlook for the Phoenix area from the perspective of homebuilders. Discussion will touch on financing, rehabilitation and community-development programs; information on housing policy, planning and code-setting processes; the regional financial outlook; incentives for growth in Peoria; preventing foreclosures; and retaining neighborhood quality.

The Building Community Speakers Series will conclude Feb. 2, 2010, with a closing symposium and public forum. Possible topics include reducing energy use, green building and new development types.
