ABOUT US

Activate Tucson was created in 2004 as a result of the Mayor's Healthy Tucson and the YMCA's Pioneering Healthier Communities initiatives. This community led coalition has continued to grow and expand and demonstrates that we are much stronger together than apart. As a group we work to influence policy, systems and environmental change to have a positive impact on the health and well being of our community and it's members. 

Our Mission:

Our Goals:

To educate, motivate and facilitate long-term collaboration with business, government, schools, communities, neighborhoods, social service agencies and the media toward making the greater Tucson area a healthier place to live work and play and to advocate for policies that support that ideal.

To influence public policy, promote and support information and education on healthier, active lifestyles, and develop and deliver informational

and motivational messages

LSA and Tucson Department of Transportation & Mobility awarded Bloomberg Philanthropies' Ashphalt Art Intiative grant

Last month, Tucson was selected as one of 26 U.S. cities to receive a grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies. Their Asphalt Art Initiative provides cities with grants of up to $25,000, as well as technical support for projects that use art and design to improve street safety, revitalize public spaces, and engage residents of their communities. Living Streets Alliance and Tucson Department of Transportation & Mobility proposed the biggest asphalt art project yet in Tucson's history.

Three more Bicycle Boulevard projects about to roll out

 

Plans are now underway for three more bicycle boulevard projects in Tucson funded by the RTA. Tucson Department of Transportation & Mobility is hoping to hear from those of you who live near one of these corridors or travel on them by bike or on foot:

  • 5th Street from Euclid Ave to 6th Ave

  • 9th/8th Street from 4th Ave to Treat Ave

  • 9th/Castro Avenue from 6th St to Ft. Lowell Rd

This is an opportunity to fine-tune the alignment of these corridors, create safer crossings at intersections with major roadways, and install traffic calming at key locations.

Learn more and take a survey to help design the projects >>
