The County Needs Your Input on Transportation
By Pinal County
Beginning today and through May 11th, the Draft 2018 Five-Year Transportation Improvement and Maintenance Program for Budget Years 2017-2018 through 2021-2022 is available for public review and comment by visiting the county’s website at:
Updated annually, the transportation program identifies potential funding and establishes a tentative schedule for county-wide planning, construction, and maintenance projects. After the public comment period, the program will be submitted to the Board of Supervisors for final approval in June.
By unanimous vote, the Transportation Advisory Committee approved the draft program in February. The committee is a 10-member panel that is appointed by the Board of Supervisors to annually review, update, and recommend the program of transportation projects. The committee’s recommendation is a culmination of a six month planning cycle that included three public meetings and the evaluation of 36 transportation project requests.
The committee recommended 10 new transportation projects for Budget Year 2021-2022 that addressed the program goals of improving safety, increasing paved mileage, and minimizing dust within the county’s transportation system.
Transportation Advisory Committee meetings for the next planning cycle are scheduled as follows:
Tuesday, September 25, 2018
Tuesday, November 27, 2018
Tuesday, February 26, 2019
The meetings begin at 2:30 PM and are held in the Ironwood Room of the 1891 Historic Courthouse (Pinal County Administrative Complex), 135 North Pinal Street in Florence.
