You will learn about PAG, the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) and how the public can participate in regional transportation project planning, e.g. Dove Mountain Boulevard, Tangerine Road and more. TA members will be getting a special event invitation with all the details in a few days.
Tortolita Alliance (TA) Tee Shirts
TA Tee Shirts are in and most have been delivered. We do have about 25 unisex and 15 women's tee shirts available. The cost is $20 with a portion going to support TA. If you want to order, just go to the Support Tab and order on-line. You can pay at pick-up/delivery.
Dove Mountain Boulevard Road Noise
Many Dove Mountain residents are concerned about road noise along Dove Mountain Boulevard. Especially after the recent chip sealing project. A local group has been formed and they are working with Marana on this issue. You can go to the Dove Mountain Boulevard Improvement Activity website for more information.
La Puerta Del Norte
TA attended, submitted a Comment Letter and made verbal comments at the August 8, 2020 Public Hearing on this proposed annexation/housing development located adjacent to the El Rio Preserve. TA worked closely with the Coalition For Sonoran Desert Protection and Bean Tree Farm in formulating its comments. We will continue to monitor this project.
