A conference underway today in Phoenix aims to make cities more generous to their ecosystems.
Changes in Maryvale, Real and Perceived
As part of our series profiling different communities in Phoenix, we head to West Phoenix. Maryvale was once a highly desirable area to buy a family home. But changes in the area's demographics--and changes in perception through the years--have altered the way many people look at Maryvale. We find out what community members think about the place they call home, and what they want from the city of Phoenix government. Steve Goldstein has this report.
