Broadway Citizens Corridor Task Force Update


The Citizens Task Force (CTF) for the Broadway, Euclid to Country Club
project is holding its first meeting on Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 5:30
p.m. in the Copper Room at Randolph Golf Complex, 600 South Alvernon
Way. The first Broadway CTF meeting will involve introductions of the
project team and other CTF members, an overview of the project, a
presentation regarding Context Sensitive Solutions planning and a
discussion of the CTF role and ground rules.

Following the CTF meeting, at approximately 7 p.m., the project team
and CTF will host a public listening session at the same location. This
session will feature an opportunity for CTF applicants, neighborhood
association leadership from neighborhoods in and around the project
corridor, area businesses, and members of the general public to share
their thoughts on the Broadway project.

Comments can be shared by participating in small group discussion or by
submitting written comment cards for consideration by the CTF and
project team as the project progresses. The topics that will be covered
include the roadway’s look and feel, community character, economic
vitality, and the future of Broadway as a gateway to downtown Tucson.

The Broadway, Euclid to Country Club project is an important part of
the 2006 voter-approved Regional Transportation Authority Plan. The
project will directly impact the future mobility and urban form of
Tucson and the entire region. For more information, visit the project

voter-approved, $2.1 billion RTA plan that will be implemented through
2026.  Details about the RTA plan are available at
