Revitalization of the Rio Salado is happening through individual projects designed, coordinated, and led by communities that are impacted by the change they create.
A regional vision for this vast riverine transect will take many decades to actualize. Communities along the Rio Salado River balance their individual priorities and needs with the benefits of collaborating with neighboring stakeholders to maximize local support and federal resources. Some have compared the Rio Reimagined’s connected string of future projects to a beaded turquoise necklace, laid across the urban desert, stringing nodes of recreational, environmental, economic, and social services together across cities and nations.
