Pima Association of Governments (PAG) is updating its draft Public Involvement Policy. The PIP provides a structure for active public participation to help PAG better identify regional needs that can be addressed in our plans and policies. A 45-day public comment period was conducted Oct. 17, 2017, through Nov. 30, 2017.
PAG is an association of local, tribal and state governments and a metropolitan planning organization that is federally required (23 CFR 450.316 [b] ) by the Federal Highway Administration to have a public involvement process to qualify for federal funds dedicated to advancing regional transportation planning efforts. This PIP also addresses Federal Transit Administration requirements for a public participation process for the FTA-required Program of Projects (49 U.S.C. 5307[c]), which is developed by the City of Tucson. The draft PIP is an update to PAG's original policy prepared in 1994, updated in 2006 and amended in 2012.
We invite you to read the draft PIP.
A copy of the draft PIP also is available for review at Pima Association of Governments, 1 E. Broadway Blvd., Suite 401, Tucson.
The draft PIP will be considered by the Regional Council for approval at its March 22, 2018, meeting.

Current Public Involvement Policy
Pima Association of Governments encourages public involvement to ensure consensus among the jurisdictions and the people who live in the region regarding regional planning and programming activities. PAG’s Public Involvement Policy provides guidance on how to establish public participation from a wide spectrum of public interests.
The public has access to PAG’s meetings and planning data and is invited to participate in focus groups, workshops and surveys. Activities are designed to encourage a two-way exchange of information and ideas.
