Phoenix Magazine Project Update

July 1, 1971

Author Leo Moore gives an enthusiastic description of the Rio Salado dream and he describes how things may be developed in the year 2000. He describes progress made by the Valley Forward Association, who took the lead on moving the Project forward in 1969. In May of 1971, they “turned over $34,000 to MAG (Maricopa Association of Governments) for a study of the feasibility of building the Rio Salado.  The study is being done by the California firm of Daniel, Mann, Johnson and Mendenhall.”
