Wednesday’s special council meeting, where the results of six community meetings will be presented, is critical for the South Phoenix Light Rail Expansion project’s future.

In response, one day before the session, the Build South Central Coalition held a final rally outside City Hall to advocate for the project.

Former Mayor Greg Stanton, mayoral candidates Kate Gallego and Daniel Valenzuela as well as other community activists were in attendance.

Proposition 104, passed in 2014, raised sales taxes in order to fund expanding transportation services to the Phoenix community. Light rail supporters called for the city council to remember their prior commitment to the project.
