My office got several calls and emails about a shredding/household hazardous waste drop-off that was originally scheduled for Pima College Downtown Campus on Saturday.

You may be hearing the initials ADU, which stands for Accessory Dwelling Unit. Basically, these are smaller, second houses built on a lot with a larger house. My colleagues and I are considering making code changes that will make them easier to build in Tucson.

Mayor and Council will hold a virtual Public Hearing on October 19 before they consider adopting this code amendment. Email email@example.com to submit comments or request to speak at the virtual hearing.
American Red Cross needs your blood. They continue to battle a truly terrible blood shortage for all blood types right now.

“This dance doesn’t work.”
That was what was told to a member of my staff by a TPD officer that works with the homeless population. He’s right.
