Don't Forget to Weigh in On the State's Transportation System at This Community Forum Wednesday

Posted By on Mon, Sep 28, 2015 at 11:56 AM

Hey Tucson, you all should share your thoughts and talk transportation pros and cons at a community discussion Wednesday sponsored by the Arizona Town Hall.

Remember I mentioned this earlier in the month?

The forums have been happening all over the state, with the purpose of getting citizens involved, and identifying "solutions for critical policy and economic issues" caused by private and public transportation. 

“The overall theme for each forum is exploring how the current transportation system is intimately interwoven and has impact on key factors such as the economy, jobs, community, health, lifestyle, education, housing and certainly, the environment. Through the community forums, we want to inform Arizona citizens of research and recommendations which came from the 106th statewide Town Hall..." said Tara Jackson, president of Arizona Town Hall, in a statement to the media a few weeks ago . "We want to hear from people who are affected by transportation issues. Those range all the way from concerns about roads and infrastructure to thoughts about public transportation, or transportation’s impact on the environment. We want the report to represent people, in the true spirit of a Town Hall which reflects consensus from the broad spectrum of the public."

Comments gathered at the statewide forums will then be distributed to state legislators, the public and others.

To register, visit, or call 602-252-9600. 

The discussion is happening on Wednesday, Sept. 30 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Pima Community College's Community Campus, 401 N. Bbonita Ave., Room A-109/A-112. Lunch at the event is $20.

Luckily, all buses are in route again, so car-less citizens you will have a ride there.
