Public Participation

Pima Association of Governments invites the public to participate in its meetings and events to become familiar with metropolitan planning, and how you can provide input and be more engaged in PAG’s planning processes. Your participation will help ensure planned outcomes meet the needs of our regional community in the areas of mobility, sustainability and livability.

We are committed to an open and transparent process, involving  the public, our local, county, state and tribal members as well as our federal, state and local partnering agencies.

PAG Regional Council and committee meetings are open to the public. Public meeting notices are posted on the PAG website and onsite in the office lobby.

PAG provides advance notice of public comment periods, public hearings and other public activities and uses a variety of methods to engage the public and seek input. This includes conducting virtual and hybrid meetings, community stakeholder meetings, surveys, focus groups or special events. We continually update our public participation strategies to include the best and most up-to-date practices to engage with you.

Communication tools include email distributions, social media or traditional media advertising, social media posts, newsletters and news releases.

The public has access to PAG planning data and is invited to participate in focus groups, workshops and surveys as plans and programs are developed. Activities are designed to encourage an exchange of information and ideas.

You may request to be added to PAG’s email distribution list to receive notices, newsletters or other announcements to stay involved and current on the latest planning information.
