Meetings, Agendas and Minutes

The Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) is a Council of Governments (COG) that serves as the regional agency for the metropolitan Phoenix area. When MAG was formed in 1967, the elected officials recognized the need for long-range planning and policy development on a regional scale. They realized that many issues such as transportation, air quality and human services affected residents beyond the borders of their individual jurisdictions.

MAG was founded in the spirit of cooperation. MAG members believe that by uniting, they can solve common problems, take an active role in long-range regional issues and address concerns that affect all of the communities.

MAG is the designated metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for transportation planning in the Maricopa County region. MAG has also been designated by the Governor to serve as the principal planning agency for the region in a number of other areas, including air quality, water quality and solid waste management. In addition, through an Executive Order from the Governor, MAG develops population estimates and projections for the region.

2014 Heat Relief Maps

The summer heat in Arizona can be deadly.  According to the National Weather Service, the Phoenix area averages 110 days of temperatures above 100 degrees.  It is important to protect yourself from the dangers of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.  Vulnerable populations like older adults, children, people who are experiencing homelessness and those who work outdoors, need to take extra precautions.  The Maricopa Association of Governments has partnered with non-profit organizations, the faith-based community, cities and towns in the region and others to form the Heat Relief Network and to provide heat relief maps.

Three maps have been created to indicate resources available in the community:

The collection map provides regional locations that are collecting bottled water and other donations such as clothing, unopened sun block, and food items for those who are in need.  The hydration and refuge map indicates regional locations that people can go to for water, refuge or both.  Our online map includes all collection, hydration and refuge locations in a single, mobile friendly map. Additional information from our Continuum of Care Committee on protecting yourself from the dangers of Arizona's heat can be found here and at the Maricopa County website. For additional information on regional heat relief efforts, please contact Brande Mead at (602) 452-5060.

Web Cards Help Track Progress of Projects
MAG, in conjunction with the Arizona Department of Transportation, has developed a new user-friendly way for members of the public to track projects that are being implemented as part of the Regional Transportation Plan funded by Proposition 400. A web-based, one-page card has been developed for each freeway project. Each card provides information such as a description of the project, its benefits, and a timeline. The first set of project cards are available on the MAG website at http://projectcards.azmag.gov.
