The South Mountain Citizen Advisory Team, tonight in its first meeting of 2005, will continue its discussions on the South Mountain (Loop 202) Freeway project.
The team is expected to address the Pecos Road route under review by the Arizona Department of Transportation.
ADOT has recently begun unveiling the streets in Ahwatukee Foothills that could connect to a freeway should one be built.
The team will also discuss the draft environmental impact study now
under way that ADOT is hoping to release to the public by 2006.
The team is made up of representatives from municipalities, businesses, homeownership associations, schools districts and environmental groups that may be affected by the construction of a freeway spanning from Ahwatukee Foothills to the West Valley.
Members of the Ahwatukee Foothills Chamber of Commerce, the village planning committee and the Ahwatukee Lakewood Homeowners Association are among the team's members.
The public is invited to attend tonight's meeting from 5:30 to 8:30 at the Gila River Indian Community District 6 Komatke Center in the meeting hall on the northwestern corner of 51st Avenue and St. John's Road, north of Pecos Road.
