Applications for PAG Citizen Advisory Committee on the Regional Transit Authority

Pima Association of Governments Citizen Advisory Committee

Work is now beginning on the formation of the regional 2045 long-range transportation plan. Also known as the 2045 RMAP (Regional Mobility and Accessibility Plan), PAG is now looking for citizens who want to invest their time in the planning effort.

The work is aimed at identifying the long-term transportation needs of the region. Over time though, the Citizen Advisory Committee will work with the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) on framing the continuation of the RTA. It expires in 2026 and will need to go back to the voters for re-approval. What the RTA responsibilities are, and how much the sales tax is going to be are all a part of this reauthorization planning effort.

If you’d like to get involved in this planning work, you need to get your application in by 5pm on Thursday, April 19th. To find out more information on the process go to their website at www.pagregion.com, or www.rtamobility.com. You can also call Paki Rico for more information at 495.1450.

Pima Association of Governments (PAG), the region’s council of governments and metropolitan planning organization, and the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA), which manages a 20-year regional transportation plan (FY 2007-2026) funded by a half-cent sales tax, are forming a new citizens committee to provide public input on transportation planning efforts.

The PAG Regional Council/RTA Board are seeking to appoint individuals who collectively mirror the diversity of our region. Individuals interested in serving on the committee must reside in Pima County and be of voting age. Employees, committee members or anyone with a contractual relationship related to transportation matters with PAG/RTA or any of the PAG jurisdictional members will not be appointed. Selected applicants will serve up to a three-year term, starting in summer 2018.

Interested applicants may complete an online application at www.PAGregion.com/CAC or visit www.PAGregion.com for application criteria and additional details. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, 2018.

Please consider adding your expertise in livability and constituent representation to this effort.
