Envision, Engage, Enhance
The “Sun Corridor” refers to Arizona’s megapolitan area stretching from Nogales in the south to Prescott in the north, with Phoenix at its core. Being the fastest-growing region in the Intermountain West brings serious challenges for the region’s future. Sonoran Institute’s expertise in land use planning, smart growth, and resource management; our conviction that environmental protection and economic prosperity are compatible; and our collaborative, community-focused approach, uniquely position the Sun Corridor Program to advance a vision for a sustainable and prosperous region in Central and Southern Arizona. We enlist the following strategies to achieve that vision:
1) Envision a future that responds to the need for prosperity and an improved quality of life;
2) Engage diverse cultures and points of view in decision-making and environmental issues; and
3) Enhance our community by promoting conservation of limited natural resources.
Visit the Sun Corridor pages below to learn more about our projects and find out how we translate our strategies into actions. Your financial support and involvement in the responsible growth of our region and conservation of precious resources are greatly appreciated.
