Goodyear building Water Conservation Committee

Goodyear building Water Conservation Committee

Did you know? About 95 percent of the water entering our homes goes down the drain according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Just in time for Earth Day, the City of Goodyear is now recruiting members to establish a water conservation committee to find ways for everyone to use water more efficiently. The City Council approved the formation of the committee in February. Its goal will be to generate ideas to reduce outdoor water use by one percent each year. The committee will be composed of eleven members and two alternates selected by the City Council and will meet eight to ten times a year according to the City of Goodyear press release. Applications to be on the Goodyear Water Conservation Committee are due by Friday, April 22nd which is coincidentally Earth Day.

Mark Holmes, water resources manager for Goodyear, said irrigation consumes about twenty-nine percent of the city’s total water use. Single family outdoor uses another thirty-five percent of the total water. Sandra Rode, water conservation specialist for Goodyear, said the committee would look at making recommendations into the future five years and also review the city’s existing water conservation plan. She said the ultimate goal of conservation is to protect the quality of life in Goodyear.

For details on how to apply, go to goodyearaz.gov. If you’d like to be more involved with the Goodyear community or if you’d like to buy a home in Goodyear, please contact Lisa Bray today. Happy Earth Day!

“More than Just a Home”

City of Avondale poised for future growth

City of Avondale poised for future growth

If you were lucky enough to catch Mayor Kenn Weise’s State of the City address last week, then you’re sure to be fired up about living in Avondale! His theme of “Striking a Balance” really hit home as it was hosted near the bowling lanes at the newly opened Main Event, one of Avondale’s major new commercial developments.

Weise said Avondale is among the healthiest home construction markets in the country, with an increase of 175 percent in permits for new houses in 2015. “2015 was a great year for Avondale. If 2015 was the year of groundbreakings, 2016 will be the year of ribbon-cuttings,” Weise told a group of about 180 public officials, business leaders and others who attended the event.

As the city observes its 70th anniversary this year, Avondale is one of twenty cities named as finalists for the 2016 All-America City Award. Here are some of the upcoming community projects that further demonstrate Weise’s statements that Avondale is poised for future growth:

  • Copper Springs Hospital, which Weise said will have 150 high-wage jobs.
  • Two locations for QuikTrip gas and convenience stores.
  • Seven restaurants will open in the next eighteen months along McDowell Road.
  • Copper State Rubber facility
  • 200,000 square feet of entertainment and retail space on the city’s east side

“Avondale remains among the most stable government organizations in the Valley of the Sun. People want to live in Avondale. This is where they want to raise their families,” stated Weise. “They will eat, they will shop, they will play here.”

Want to live in the booming City of Avondale? If you’d like information about relocating to Avondale or buying a home in Avondale, please contact Lisa Bray today. My goal is to leverage my knowledge and experience to help you get the best price the market. Your complete satisfaction with my service and representation is the number one priority!
