Study Underway to Assess Future Transit Needs for City of Eloy
The future of public transit in the City of Eloy is the focus of a new study being conducted by the Sun Corridor Metropolitan Planning Organization in Pinal County.
The study, funded by the Federal Transit Administration, is seeking public input on current and future transit needs in Eloy, including potential transit connections with adjacent communities.
A public open house will be held on Tuesday, June 5 from 5-7 p.m. at the Eloy Santa Cruz Library, 1000 N. Main Street in Eloy. The meeting will start with a brief presentation, followed by the opportunity for attendees to discuss public transit needs with the study team and fill out a survey.
The nine-month study will update a 2011 study to analyze the potential for, and viability of, a transit system designed to meet the anticipated future population and employment growth in the city and surrounding communities.
The study area is the current city limits of Eloy, with a focus on areas that are under development and potential connections with existing transit providers such as the Pinal Hispanic Council, the Eloy Adult Center and Central Arizona Regional Transit in Coolidge as well as the transit plan being developed by the City of Casa Grande.
The study includes the use of a map-based on-line public comment tool that features a public survey and can be found at https://gg.mysocialpinpoint.com/eloy-transit#/. Two public open houses will be scheduled as well to gather community input for use by the study team.
The study will assess current conditions to develop short-range and long-range transit plans as well as a plan for implementing both.
For more information about this study, please contact Jason Hafner, Sun Corridor MPO Transportation Planner, at (520) 705-5153 or at email@example.com.
