City to host Public Open House on Recommended Transportation Network for Downtown

Last year, the City of Casa Grande initiated the Downtown Traffic Circulation Study that builds upon the values expressed in the recently adopted Casa Grande General Plan 2020 Update and focuses on improving circulation within and through Downtown Casa Grande. Downtown Casa Grande is an asset that must be maintained as the heart of the community; creating a circulation system that allows for pedestrian- and transit-oriented development, as well as the ability to efficiently move people and goods to and through Downtown, is critical to ensuring that Downtown Casa Grande is economically sustainable and a place that attracts residents, visitors and business investment.

On Monday, September 20, the City will host a public open house to present the long-range transportation network recommendations and implementation plan. Participants will interact with study team members and be able to review displays of the recommended transportation network and provide feedback. Residents and stakeholders are invited to join members of the study team anytime between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. at Council's Chambers at City Hall 510 E. Florence Blvd.

Following the public open house, the study team will present the recommendations to Council at their Study Session.
