An Open House for the 30% Plan has been scheduled for March 29, 2016. This is an opportunity for the community to meet with various members of the design team to ask questions and receive information. The location will be at the Sabbar Shrine Temple, 450 S. Tucson Blvd., starting at 5:30 p.m.
Comments on the 30% Plan will be received and reviewed by the project team through April 15, 2016. All comments received by April 15 will be provided to Mayor and Council, with responses as necessary, at their April 19, 2016, meeting.
REAL ESTATE UPDATE
The project team recently held five Acquisition 101 meetings for the Grant Road and Broadway Boulevard corridors. We received positive feedback from the meetings with an overall rating by attendees of 4.3 out of 5. The Acquisition 101 presentation has been posted online on the Broadway website, as well as additional real estate handouts and information.
Additionally, over 80% of the property and business owners who received a Relocation Planning Letter have completed their interviews with Tierra Right of Way to date. James MacAdam, the City of Tucson's Broadway Boulevard Ombudsman, is still meeting with interested property owners along the corridor. Please contact him for questions or need to discuss your property, at (520) 837-4068 or email at James.MacAdam@tucsonaz.gov.
The City and Project Team also continues to work closely with the MainStreet Business Assistance Program, which assists business owners with issues related to potential construction impacts.
