This year’s ITS Arizona Annual Conference will be held on Tuesday, September 24th and Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the Mesa Convention Center, Building C, located at 263 N Center Street in Mesa, Arizona.
The theme of this year’s conference – ITS – The Path to Smart Mobility– underscores the conference’s goals of providing participants with a one-stop resource focusing on evolving smart mobility applications that are enhancing the multi-modal transportation options while presenting challenges and opportunities to the communities in integrating the technologies into public spaces. Elected and appointed officials, business and community leaders and emergency responders and public safety personnel will contribute to the rich dialogue while learning about the technical challenges facing the transportation community.
The ITS Arizona Annual Conference is almost here!! Don’t forget to register before September 1 to secure the early bird registration fees.
As part of Day 1 of the conference, Traffic Technology Services in cooperation with City of Mesa will host a Connected Vehicle live demonstration.
City of Mesa has an exciting career opportunity for the position of City Plans Examiner.
A City Plans Examiner is a skilled technical classification which performs responsible plans examination work in support of the central plans review function of the Development Services Department or Transportation Department including screening and preliminary plan review. Work involves researching historical background information pertinent to individual permit applications; performing technical analyses of plans, specifications, and reports; and reviewing construction documents for completeness, accuracy, and conformance to applicable codes, ordinances, and national standards.
The 27th ITS World Congress in Los Angeles, CA, October 4-8, 2020 will explore “The New Age of Mobility.” The recent explosion of new technologies and new forms of mobility are transforming the future of transportation. At a time in which we are focused on moving people, data and freight, how will we prepare for a future that is increasingly more connected, autonomous, shared and electric? The technologies that make our roads safer will also reduce congestion and greenhouse gas emissions and move us closer to a future of seamless mobility — one that is safer, greener and smarter.
On Thursday, July 18, ITS Arizona visited the Andre House to volunteer for their nightly dinner service. The Andre House provides warm meals to those in need on six nights of the week. The ITS Arizona group of volunteers prepared the ingredients for the meal, cleaned the dining room, and served food to the guests. We met many other volunteers that make the dinner service possible on a regular basis. This was a great opportunity for us to meet other members of the community, learn to prepare a big meal together, and support the community. In addition, the ITS Arizona provided the Andre House with a monetary donation to support their ongoing service.
Thank you to all who volunteered with us! Stay tuned for more opportunities to volunteer with ITS Arizona.
