As the planning and design work begins, some key studies and reports will provide a basis for discussion and decisions:
- Traffic Engineering Study. (Complete; dated March, 2012)
Executive Summary 8/30/12 Special Traffic Analysis
This study considers the effects of 2040 traffic volumes on the proposed cross-section, and integrates the Pima Association of Governments (PAG) High Capacity Transit Study plans. The 'Conclusions' section of this study (pgs. 28-30) identifies what roadway improvements are warranted based on the data and modeling analyses. The Executive Summary (34 pages) and full report (254 pages) are provided below.
In August, 2012, a special traffic analysis was done by the project team using adjusted projections reduced by 25%. This was provided to aid discussions in October focused on transportation, defining 'functionality,' and transportation performance measures.
- Phase 1 Draft Report: Historic Buildings Inventory. (Complete; dated October 2012.)
Report Summary Map Appendix (coming)
An inventory of buildings alongside Broadway has been conducted. The buildings were reviewed for their eligibility to contribute to a future commercial historic district, or to be listed individually, on the National Register of Historic Places. Buildings are mapped that are eligible as contributors to a future historic district, or as individually listed buildings on the NRHP, or that are architecturally significant but not yet old enough to be eligible. State Historic Property Inventory Forms for all properties were completed. The final version of the document has been distributed to the Citizens Task Force for discussion at their November 8, 2012 meeting.
Historic Property Inventory Forms completed for all adjacent properties to Broadway.
Appendix A (Volume 1) - Summary, all properties inventoried
Appendix B (Volume 2) - Eligible properties, south side
Appendix C (Volume 2) - Rincon Heights Historic Dist. forms, north
Appendix D (Volume 2) - Eligible properties, north, not Rincon Heights
Appendix E (Volume 2) - Ineligible properties, south side
Appendix F (Volume 2) - Ineligible properties, north side
- Land Use, Urban Form, and Significant Structures Report. (Complete; dated November 2012.)
This document provides an "existing conditions" evaluation and assessment of existing land uses and structures, and will inform discussions on compatibility of future land uses.
NOTE: The Project Charter document was initially required prior to beginning the Planning & Design phase of the project. While it is still desired that there be a record of mutual agreement and understanding by all involved on this project - the Citizens Task Force, the project technical team, and the Technical Advisory Committee - it is not required immediately. The document remains here as a reference.
