There is growing awareness among residents, public officials, and business leaders that improving our region’s pedestrian environment, for all people, is essential for enhancing our quality of life and ensuring our community’s long-term vitality. After all, walking is good for our health, for our air, for our roads, for local businesses and for our neighborhoods. But, in order to make this a truly pedestrian-friendly region, our sidewalks, paths and roadways must be safe, comfortable and accessible for all users.
Through the month of April, PAG is conducting a regional pedestrian survey to better understand residents’ pedestrian behaviors, attitudes, needs, and demands. The results of the survey will guide a pedestrian planning process and help determine our region’s priorities for a more walkable future.

The Regional Pedestrian Plan
To continue to build on and support the increasing momentum in the Tucson region for greater walkability, Pima Association of Governments has recently started a process to create a Regional Pedestrian Plan. The Plan will:
- Emphasize the importance of walking as a mode of transportation in the Tucson region
- Help us better understand our regional pedestrian needs
- Set regional pedestrian goals and targets
- Identify priorities for pedestrian improvements and investments
To learn more about the Plan, or to request a hard copy of the survey, please contact Patrick Hartley at Pima Association of Governments (firstname.lastname@example.org or 792-1093). Thank you!
