Tucson Equitable Transit Oriented Development (ETOD) Strategic Plan
This Equitable Transit Oriented Development (ETOD) Strategic Plan involves bringing community members together to identify opportunities for equitable reinvestment and access along a future 15-mile-long North-South High Capacity Transit corridor connecting the Tucson Mall on the northside to downtown Tucson and to the Tucson Airport on the southside.
Cushing Terrell is leading a dynamic team of local Tucson experts and national transit and urban design professionals in facilitating conversations around mobility, universal access, equity, and affordable housing in a thoughtful and comprehensive way. The study includes an extensive outreach and engagement phase intended to connect and empower traditionally underserved and Latinx populations in Tucson to understand the values, aspirations, and desires of the community to address climate and resiliency, access, and equity for all people.
Cushing Terrell’s approach focuses on building connections, meeting people where they are, and learning from the collective wisdom of people who live, work, or travel in the study area. Our methodology is guided by a whole-systems approach that is built upon strengths-based facilitation methods that focus on relationship-building to engage everyone on even footing, connecting different perspectives, and honoring people’s lived experiences.
