ARE WE THERE YET? THE ROLE OF TRANSPORTATION IN DRIVING ARIZONA’S GLOBAL ECONOMY
These are some of the questions addressed in a transportation primer released by Arizona Forward, the state's oldest environmental nonprofit. Its charge is to promote cooperative efforts to improve the livability, sustainability and economic vitality of Arizona’s cities and towns.
Arizona Forward was founded as Valley Forward in 1969, one year before the first Earth Day. We expanded statewide in 2013.
We mobilize business leaders and policymakers to leverage their collective power to influence how we best grow our communities, stimulate our economy and enhance our environment.
Our diverse membership of large corporations and small businesses, along with municipal, county and state agencies, educational institutions, related nonprofits and concerned citizens help ensure: smart growth and development, efficient transportation, improved air quality, responsible water management, energy alternatives and meaningful education.
