At the urging of residents and community leaders, the Arizona Department of Transportation has begun to give updates about the freeway that, if implemented, would impact Ahwatukee Foothills. A department representative will attend the meeting.
Recently, the department revealed which streets would make logical connection points with a freeway, should it be built along the Pecos Road alignment: 40th, 32nd and 24th streets, Desert Foothills Parkway and in the vicinity of 17th and 25th avenues.
The committee also will discuss whether any Ahwatukee Foothills projects
might be included in the 2006 bond election.
The passage of a bond package in 2001 paid for Pecos Park and the community center that is expected to open in fall 2006.
"We thought we could kick off the new year by asking what do you think Ahwatukee Foothills will need?" said Chris Hood, a planner with the city.
