PAG Seeks Your Opinion on Tucson’s Transportation Needs
February 12, 2014
Want wider roads? More sidewalks and bike paths? Expanded transit? The public may submit their thoughts for consideration in the update to Pima Association of Governments’ long-range plan.
PAG, the region’s metropolitan planning organization, recently launched the 2045 Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) planning process. When finished, the 2045 RTP will identify goals, challenges, performance targets and projects for the PAG region over the next 30 years, guiding how transportation funds are spent in this community.
The 2045 RTP will consider all elements of the regional transportation network, including, but not limited to:
- Land use and growth forecasts
- Public transportation
- Congestion management
- High-capacity transit
- Transportation finance
- Transportation safety
- Bikeways and sidewalks
- Aviation improvements
- Highways and arterials
- Road Maintenance
The RTP incorporates the projects included in the Regional Transportation Authority plan and projects that are included in PAG’s five-year transportation improvement program, which is updated annually.
In developing the RTP, PAG wants to hear from members of the community about goals, concerns and regional priorities for the future of our region’s transportation system. To do so, PAG is conducting a regional transportation survey from now through the middle of March 2014.
