Who We Are

Pima Association of Governments is a metropolitan planning organization for the greater Tucson region and an association of local, state and tribal governments that works to build consensus among its members and the public on regional planning for transportation, water quality, air quality and economic vitality.

Metropolitan Planning

our work

PAG is a federally required and state-designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO). This means it represents the government agencies in the region to secure federal funding for transportation improvements through long-range planning activities and short-range transportation improvement programming. PAG is also federally required to conduct regional air quality, water quality and solid waste planning.

decision making

Pima Association of Government uses committees to guide its activities by involving member jurisdictions in regional discussions and decision making; share knowledge and responsibility for action, and access specialized skills in the community. Policy advisory committees and technical committees review plans and programs as they are developed, vet proposals, and help shape the planning and implementation of PAG’s work.
