Paul's Note - February 12, 2021

Earlier this week, it looked like COVID-19 cases were trending down slightly, but this morning’s Arizona Department of Health Services numbers show new cases have increased again. 

This is why it is still important to take precautions: maintain social distance and wear a mask when you are in public. Also, if you are eligible, make an appointment to get a vaccination.

Attend a Public Meeting on Accessory Dwelling Units

At the request of Mayor and Council, the City of Tucson is considering changes to the zoning code to allow Accessory Dwelling Units. An Accessory Dwelling Unit, or ADU, is an independent housing unit with its own kitchen, bathroom, living and sleeping space, built on the same lot as a primary residence. These units have been legalized in other communities in order to create more affordable housing, support multi-generational households and provide more options for residents who wish to age in place.

Paul's Note - February 5, 2021

My office has heard a lot of concerns about the planned Reid Park Zoo expansion. The expansion was initially approved by voters in 2017 when there was a ballot issue approving a new one-tenth of one cent sales tax to fund zoo operations. That led to a management agreement between the City and the Tucson Zoological Society the following year.
