94th Arizona Town Hall
From Here to There: Transportation Opportunities for Arizona
April 19-22, 2009, Tucson

Participants of the 94th Arizona Town Hall traveled from throughout Arizona and convened in Tucson for three days to discuss the challenges and opportunities transportation presents to Arizona. The Town Hall addressed gasoline prices, alternative fuels and related environmental concerns, and metropolitan, rural, tribal and tourism issues. Participants examined the effects of available modes of transportation, including freight transportation, on Arizona's participation in international trade. Participants analyzed highway travel and congestion, public transit, long-distance passenger rail, air transportation and forms of non-motorized transportation, public involvement in transportation decision making, and the complex topic of transportation finance, all while taking into consideration Arizona's diverse population (including the aging). Participants debated the best approaches to seizing transportation opportunities in light of the current economic recession.

The recommendations include the following elements:

  • Incorporate Existing Resources, Studies and Reports
  • Establish A Citizen Transportation Review Commission
  • Protect and Secure Needed Funding
  • Improve Coordination Between Land Use Planning and Transportation
  • Improve Integration with National Transportation Networks
  • Take Action as Individuals
  • Create a Comprehensive Transportation Outreach and Education Initiative
  • Enact Legislation to Allow Formation of Public-Private Partnerships
  • Utilize New Technologies for Planning and Systems
