“This Spring, voters passed Proposition 101, the five-year, half-cent sales tax increase that will be used to repair streets and address public safety capital needs. The Tucson Department of Transportation is kicking off its effort to identify and repair local streets under Proposition 101 with a Tucson Delivers – Better Streets Open House on Thursday, August 24, 2017, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., at Sabbar Shrine Center, 450 S. Tucson Blvd.
TDOT will make a short presentation at 6:15 p.m. about the accomplishments of the Proposition 409 Road Recovery Bond Program and how the Proposition 101 Better Streets Program will work. Large maps of City streets will be on display, and open house attendees will be encouraged to submit their street-related concerns on comment cards and connect their comments to locations on the maps using a numbering system. TDOT staff will also be available to talk with those attending and answer questions. The Bond Oversight Commission will be invited, as its members will be designating local streets for repair under the Better Streets Program. Local streets will be selected based on public input and street condition as evaluated by comprehensive engineering analyses. Your Ward 2 office will be giving you more information about this event in the coming weeks.”
