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.

MAG Public Involvement and Title VI/Environmental Justice
The Maricopa Association of Governments is seeking public comment on its updated Title VI and Environmental Justice Plan and its updated Public Participation Plan. Under the latest federal transportation guidelines known as Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), public involvement and Title VI/environmental justice remain critical components of the transportation planning process. As part of this process, MAG periodically updates these plans to incorporate new guidelines or techniques as they become available. When updating either plan, MAG makes each plan available for public review for 45 days, in accordance with federal guidelinges. Any comments received during the 45-day period will be reviewed and considered prior to final approval by the MAG Regional Council. The plans are scheduled for final approval during the May 2014 MAG Regional Council meeting. To provide your public comment on these issues by email, click here.

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.
