Phoenix's historic neighborhoods are more walkable and diverse than other parts of the city

The Phoenix City Council has given its approval to a report that examines the city’s historic preservation efforts over the past several decades.

Called Preservation Phoenix Style, the report finds, among other things, that the city’s historic neighborhoods are more walkable, have lower foreclosure rates, more diverse housing prices and more tree cover than other Phoenix neighborhoods.

The report goes on to point out other benefits to the city of preservation and discusses some of the ways Phoenix goes about that effort.

The Show discussed the analysis with Roger Brevoort, a Valley preservation activist, consultant and realtor.
