From 1994 to 1999 we worked tirelessly to establish important protection for our neighborhood. 

One of the most difficult challenges in a central city area is to maintain the vitality of its mature neighborhoods. Too often deterioration forces such as property neglect, illegal land use, excessive rentals, cut thu traffic and a community laissez faire attitude result in neighborhood breakdown. They tear away the soul of the neighborhood resulting in a loss of what once was a consistent and recognizable homogenous character. 

The Arcadia Camelback area is a mature neighborhood with in the Phoenix Central City planning area. Its setting, landscape, character and uniform quality of home make it unique and and area work maintaining. The Phoenix zoning provisions for a Special Planning District are design to recognize the desired character of a neighborhood and identify strategies to maintain that quality and livability.
