Electric Vehicle Code Amendments approved by Mayor and Council

On Aug. 23, Mayor and Council approved an amendment to the Unified Development Code to ensure that new commercial development in Tucson is Electric Vehicle (EV) ready. These new regulations would require all new commercial development, multi-family, office, and retail to include EV stations or outlets, as well as conduit to support future expansion of EV capacity.

These new requirements come after more than a year of stakeholder and public engagement, community input, and technical analysis to develop the proposal. The new regulations will go into effect on Dec.1, 2022.

Sometimes individuals in our community have needs and challenges that our various departments and agencies are just not well suited to addressing.  Sometimes an individual might have problems that require the assistance of multiple agencies or departments. Sometimes an individual just needs a little bit more focused care than others.  That’s where our new Community Safety, Health and Wellness team comes in.

Back in 2018, you and your neighbors passed Proposition 407, also known as Tucson Delivers Parks and Connections. This $225 million bond package goes to capital improvements. The money goes to improving city parks, including pools, splash pads and ball fields, as well as connections like walking/bicycle paths and pedestrian/bicycle safety improvements.
