The Sierra Vista Metropolitan Planning Organization (SVMPO) is seeking review comments on an update to its five-year Transportation Improvement Program.

The 2023-2027 Transportation Improvement Program describes how regional transportation funds might be spent to meet future transportation needs. This plan ensures that federal funding is eligible for transit activities within the region and identifies potential projects for Vista Transit.

A Regional Transportation Open House will be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the City of Sierra Vista library conference room, located at 2600 E. Tacoma St. SVMPO staff will be available to discuss with attendees’ regional plans and studies, including the drafted five-year transportation program.

This annual update does not include any new construction projects. Three design phases are planned for the Moson Road Corridor, Buffalo Soldier Trail Pavement Resurfacing and the Skyline Drive Resurfacing Projects. The City of Sierra Vista’s sidewalk and multiuse trail network will be improved to enhance access along transit routes. This pathway connection project is funded by grant funding awarded by the Federal Transit Administration.

The SVMPO Board of Directors will consider adopting the annual regional Transportation Improvement Program at its meeting on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.

The draft 2023-2027 Transportation Improvement Program is available for review on the SVMPO website at Review comments, suggestions or questions may be submitted on- line at, by e-mail to, or by leaving a phone message at 520-515-8525. Public comments will be shared with the SVMPO Board of Directors before they consider the annual Transportation Improvement Program for adoption.
