Transportation Tyranny

Agenda Item of Concern:


ITEM 3. INFORMATION ONLY: Presentation and discussion regarding the Grand-35 Study.


TALKING POINTS: Do not implement Road Diets. This project is meant for transportation 50 years out. Implementing road diets in one of the fastest growing areas of Maricopa County is not properly planning for transportation down the road. 


Stop implementing Road Diets, expanding Bus Rapid Transit, and expanding Light Rail. These policies put small businesses out of business, increase crashes and serious injuries, increase traffic and pollution. Valley Metro's revenue from ridership is only 16%. 81% comes from Member Cities and Federal Funding. Public Transit is failing, and Phoenix needs to stop propping up failing industries. These policies do not generate the results Phoenix residents want to see.
