A 30-year plan for regional transportation improvements is before the public for review through June 23.

The Pima Association of Governments is inviting residents, businesses and the general public to share their thoughts on proposed regional transportation improvements to be included in the 2040 regional transportation plan.

This is the third and final phase of "a variety of public input opportunities that occurred throughout the two-year plan development process," the release said.

The value of the recommended improvements identified within the 2040 RTP is $18.3 billion. Additional needs of over $14 billion were identified for which no funding is available, the release said.

In compliance with federal mandates, the regional transportation plan identifies proposals for national, state and local roadways, transit or bus services, aviation, bike and pedestrian facilities as well as programs such as ride sharing, VanPool and Safe-Routes-to-School.

It includes projects funded through the Regional Transportation Authority plan, which Pima County voters approved on May 16, 2006. The $2.1 billion RTA plan is being implemented over the next 20 years.

To review the draft plan and comment upon it, go to www.PAGnet.org, or visit the Pima Association of Governments, 177 N. Church Ave., Suite 405, Tucson; city engineers' offices for Marana, Oro Valley, Sahuarita, Tucson and South Tucson, tribal offices or all branches of the Pima County library system.

The 2040 regional transportation plan is scheduled for presentation to PAG's regional council for final approval at its June 24 meeting, which will be held in the 5th floor conference room at 177 N. Church Ave at noon.

For more information about the plan, call John Liosatos, PAG's transportation planning manager, at 792-1093.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
