Which downtown Phoenix “character area” do you live/work in?

In early July, the Phoenix City Council voted to adopt the Downtown Plan, a vision for future growth, neighborhoods, and parking, and the first part of the Urban Form Project.  The Plan defines Character Areas within the plan boundaries (roughly bound by Seventh Avenue, Buckeye Road, Seventh Street and McDowell Road) with the goal of ensuring that city planning and zoning decisions stay consistent with the Character Areas.  So what Character Area do you live and/or work in?  Click here and then go to the specific page(s) of interest:
