The South Central Corridor has a history of both division and togetherness. Now is the time for the community to work together toward the future that is better, more connected and healthier for all. Thanks to voter approval in 2015, the City of Phoenix and Valley Metro are bringing the light rail to South Central Phoenix in order to build county-wide connections, develop workforce capacity and spur neighborhood revitalization. Transit-Oriented Development, also known as TOD, is the creation of compact, walkable, pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use communities centered around high-quality train systems.
In 2016 the City was awarded a Federal grant to engage the community and support local businesses along the light rail extension. The product of this grant exercise will be a living document, inspired by the hearts and voices of the community—your needs, desires and dreams of a better life for the generations to come. Our intent is to leave behind a legacy for our community and for the City of Phoenix, demonstrating a national precedent for TOD planning in support of its people.
We bring collective experience and expertise working with the families and business owners of South Central Phoenix. In fact, many of the team members have lived and worked in this community for more than 200 years collectively. You are our neighbors and friends.
