Access Sunnyslope, a project of the Maricopa County Department of Public Health, worked with community partners and residents to make it easier to get to the places people visit in Sunnyslope for food, fun and services. The project gathered feedback from residents about their awareness and use of the SMART Circulator, a free neighborhood mini-bus used to access services in the area.
Resident Ambassadors were also selected to help "be the voice" of their fellow community residents. For two months, ambassadors conducted walkability assessments in their neighborhoods and along the SMART Circulator route. The findings from these assessments helped to shape advocacy recommendations for Sunnyslope residents to pursue with the City of Phoenix.
