Economic Vitality

Transportation planning is vital to the economy and economic development of the region. In addition to Pima Association of Governments’ role as a metropolitan planning organization, we engage our Economic Vitality Advisory Committee, including partners such as the Economic and Business Research Center in the Eller College of Management, to conduct analysis and planning to support trade, tourism, land use and workforce development goals.

Smart Region

Smart communities are those that work together to solve issues beyond the reach of one jurisdiction, addressing needs of urban, suburban and rural areas through economic planning, data and connectivity. PAG’s efforts in this area focus on public-private partnerships in six key areas. Our planning efforts include an assessment of the region’s Advanced Communications Infrastructure.
