In March 2012, Pima Association of Governments (PAG) sought proposals from qualified professional firms and individuals to develop a Tucson Modern Streetcar Land Use and Development Implementation Plan. The Plan will address barriers, gaps and needed refinements in the current City of Tucson land use plans, zoning maps, and development and design standards to support development around the Tucson Modern Streetcar (Sun Link) route.
PAG’s Regional Council approved the selection of The Planning Center and its subconsultants for the project in June 2012 and work began soon thereafter. The public can check back at this site for updates during the project.
This project is managed by PAG in coordination with the City of Tucson. PAG’s approval or acceptance of consultant work documents will not imply or require implementation of consultant recommendations by the City, but rather signify that the documents are complete and valid. The City of Tucson will be solely responsible for implementing outcomes from the study.
