Phoenix is both the capital and the largest city in Arizona. Symbolically, the Capitol Mall represents the State and its aspirations; functionally, it accommodates the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. Because of its proximity to downtown, the Capitol Mall is poised for an inclusive revitalization and redevelopment that will establish Phoenix as a national exemplar of the 21st-century Capitol City. The Capitol Mall Centennial has been developed to achieve this significant goal. Unlike many historic capitol districts, which are isolated and uninviting, the Capitol Mall, as envisioned in the Capitol Mall Centennial Plan, features a series of sustainable connective infrastructures that make public spaces and services more accessible; enhance the efficiency of the complex and facilitate more effective governance; and promote an identity for a world-class capitol community.
