This was an hour-long lecture that outlined the history of Midtown Phoenix and explored some of the wider contexts for Phoenix’s post-World War II urban development. A Brief History of Midtown Phoenix was originally delivered on 29 April 2019.
As then-President of the Board of the Midtown Neighborhood Association, I worked in conjunction with my counterparts at Downtown Voices Coalition and the Phoenix Downtown Neighborhood Alliance to present a mayoral debate on issues relevant to central-city Phoenix. KJZZ’s Christina Estes moderated and all four mayoral candidates were in attendance.
The Downtown Phoenix Podcast was a project I created in 2014 to bring spacious conversation to issues relevant to the urban moment in Phoenix. The first (and, so far, only) series consisted of eight episodes featuring interviews and perspectives that weren’t normally a part of the urban Phoenix conversation.
