The Arizona Smart Growth Scorecard is a tool for community self-assessment developed by a working group of the Growth Cabinet. It is designed to strengthen the ability of local officials to plan for future growth and development and to adopt comprehensive strategies that address growth-related pressures. Arizona's Growing Smarter Guiding Principles were developed by the Growing Smarter Oversight Council. The Guiding Principles are organized into six major categories which provide the basis for the Scorecard: responsibility and accountability; preservation of community character; stewardship of natural resources; opportunity for broad choices; essential service infrastructure; and economic development.
The State of the System Report is a compilation of the physical inventory and status of the Maricopa County Department of Transportation’s infrastructure. It addresses roadway congestion, traffic safety, low volume road paving, bridges, and pavement conditions. Also, included are recommendations for future improvements within each of the infrastructure categories. The SOS report has been produced annually since 1998.
