The City of Tucson and Pima County’s Eviction Prevention Program, administered by the Community Investment Corporation, got some recognition this week from local media.
Hispanic Heritage Month
By Ward 5 Council Member Richard Fimbres
September 15 through October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month, which traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries.
BrightView Landscaping, under contract with the Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility (DTM) Streets Maintenance Division, will be trimming palm trees for the next few weeks in City median islands. There will be intermittent, median island travel lane closures as the contractor moves through the project areas. Crews will work from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Work dates and trimming locations for this week are:
Monday, September 13, 2021, to Tuesday, September 14, 2021 –
I often mention climate change in my notes to constituents, and each time I do, someone writes to me taking issue with my bringing it up. Sometimes, it’s to deny that there is climate change; sometimes it’s someone who is mad that I mentioned it at all.
Please join the City of Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility and the Ward 4 Council Office in a virtual public meeting to view the UPDATED art proposed along Houghton Road – 22nd St. to Irvigton Rd.
There are two meetings available:

On Wednesday, September 8, 2021, and Thursday, September 9, 2021, crews from Next Generation Electrical, under contract with the City of Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility (DTM), are scheduled to conduct work on the traffic signal pole at the Stone Avenue and Broadway intersection. Crews will adjust the pedestrian push button on the northeast corner of the intersection.

The Ward 5 Council Office, as well City of Tucson offices, except for emergency services, will be closed Monday, Sept. 6, in observance of Labor Day.
Council Member Fimbres and the Ward 5 staff hope you have a safe holiday weekend.
Anyone who has lived in Tucson for more than a few years knows about our monsoon season. Last year’s monsoon season was, well, a bit less than what we would expect. August is typically our wettest month at just a shade under 2.5 inches of rain. We only had 1.6 inches of rain the entire monsoon season in 2020, running from mid-July to September.
On Saturday, September 4, 2021, Scott Avenue will be closed just north of Congress Street for the Cobra Arcade Bar Block Party. The closure is scheduled to begin at approximately 9 a.m. until about 3 a.m. on Sunday, September 5.
The traveling public is asked to detour west on Congress Street and north on Church Avenue to access Pennington Street. Southbound travel on Scott Avenue approaching Congress will not be allowed through the intersection but vehicles will be able to access the Pennington Street Garage.
