The City of Chandler and Valley Metro are hosting a series of public meetings to solicit public comment on two transportation studies; the Chandler Transportation Master Plan 2019 Update (TMP) and the Arizona Avenue Alternatives Analysis Study.
The TMP is being updated to guide the future development and implementation of transportation infrastructure and operations in the City. The Arizona Avenue Alternatives Analysis Study will evaluate high-capacity transit options to connect transit riders along Arizona Avenue to the rest of the region.
In the coming months, residents will be asked for their ideas, opinions and priorities concerning improvements to Chandler’s transportation system, including the roadway system, transit system, bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
The year-long planning process kicks off with three community meetings being held at various times and locations:
Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Desert Breeze Police Substation (Community Room)
251 N. Desert Breeze Boulevard
Monday, Jan. 28, 2019, 3-4 p.m.
Chandler Environmental Education Center (Painted Desert Room)
4050 E. Chandler Heights Road
Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2019, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Chandler Senior Center (Multi-Purpose Room)
202 E. Boston St.
Meeting participants will be able to meet with City and Valley Metro representatives to share their ideas and opinions and surveys will be distributed asking recipients to identify and prioritize the types of transportation improvements they wish to see in the community. The survey also is available online.
The City’s TMP was last updated in 2010. Since that time, the community has changed considerably, including population and employment growth, new residential and commercial development, and the introduction of autonomous vehicle technologies.
