MAG is coordinating with the City of Buckeye to develop the city’s first ITS Strategic Plan. This would help the agency make strategic investments in ITS infrastructure and equip the agency with staff to manage and operate the system. In 2012, MAG developed a document that provided guidelines for ITS planning at smaller local agencies. The project team will use the MAG ITS Planning Guidelines for Smaller Jurisdictions (April 2012), as a reference in conducting this study. Any requirements that may be unique to the City of Buckeye will also be addressed.
The plan produced through this study will probably be adopted by the City of Buckeye and provide input to agency planning efforts in related areas. The plan will primarily help guide the City’s traffic management infrastructure development improve the efficiency and reliability of the transportation system. The plan will also provide guidance for making investment decisions related to future ITS technology infrastructure. The plan will most likely be linked to the general anticipated growth plan for the City. This will drive and support ITS needs over the next 10 years.

In an effort to make information delivery faster, MAG has implemented an e-mail notification system that will make it easier to receive documents such as agendas, minutes and reports. Through a free subscription service called GovDelivery, MAG member agencies and the public will have better access to information that is posted on the MAG Web site.
The subscription service monitors specific Web pages for changes, and when a change is detected, the service sends an e-mail to subscribers notifying them of the change. Users can choose to subscribe to as many of the pages as they wish. There are about 130 monitored pages on the MAG Web site.
As a subscriber, you can choose not only what information you receive, you can also choose how often you receive it—immediately, daily, or weekly.
To subscribe, simply click on the link on the page that says “Sign up to receive email updates.” Users can also click on a Quick Subscribe link on various pages to see a full list and subscribe to any of the MAG pages. To subscribe, only a few pieces of information will be required, such as e-mail address, delivery preferences and organization.
