PHX Renews is an initiative started by City of Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton to reduce the number of empty lots throughout the city by using them as community and educational spaces.
It all began on a 15-acre lot in the center of the city at Central and Indian School that now boasts more than 11 sponsors, dozens of community gardens, a pet exercise area, art installations of local artists and much more.
Since then, PHX Renews has also partnered with Shine Coffee to transform a small empty lot on Central and Vernon Avenue into a pocket park. And other vacant lot transformations are in the works.
