City of Tempe to honor former City Councilmember Leonard Copple
A special dedication ceremony for former Tempe City Councilmember Leonard Copple will be held Dec. 15 to commemorate the naming of the Copple Courtyard at the Tempe Transportation Center, located at 200 E.

Copple in honor of his faithful support of transportation issues during his many years of service as a Tempe City Councilmember and community volunteer. A dedication ceremony will occur from 3 to 4 p.m. followed by a reception.
A true visionary, Leonard had the foresight to help create a sustainable, urban transportation system that provides much-needed connectivity within Tempe and throughout the larger metropolitan area. His influence is evident in the design and function of the Transportation Center. Always generous with his time and his talents, his desire to serve the community he loved so very much has contributed to improving the quality of life for Tempe residents now and in the future.
Leonard Copple passed away in May 2010. He served on the Tempe City Council in 1994 and again from 1998 to 2006 and the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission from 1984 to 1989.
