- Funding Viability - An issue highlighted in recent months is that of what funding constraints on the roadway designs exist. Given the amount of information recently developed, the City has a clearer perspective on what those are. These were not as clear prior to having developed current data.
- Property / Business Owners Section - displays included boards 1-5, plus:
- Development Diagrams
- Options & Tools for Property Revitalization
- RTA MainStreet Business Assistance Program - Property and business owners qualify for a number of free services that will help make businesses as strong as possible prior to construction begins.
- City of Tucson Real Estate Office - No acquisitions are allowed until the project reaches a design and alignment decision; however, property and business owners may still have questions about how the process works, and what benefits they are entitled to.
