Arizona Forward's Statewide Sustainability Summit was held May 29, 2018. A panel of expert speakers led more than 250 guests in a conversation about urban waterways renewal projects. Our goal was to generate ideas to guide the Rio Reimagined project in Phoenix and the Santa Cruz River Heritage Project in Tucson. We are in the early stages of efforts that will continue far into the future, and we are committed to maintaining the enthusiasm and momentum.
