We are embarking on another discussion about the long range future of our community, this time it’s on a topic I’ve spoken and written about before: our water future.
Tucson Water is preparing a new comprehensive long range plan for the first time since 2004, based on a nationally recognized integrated approach to water resource management known as “One Water.”
The City of Tucson will observe Presidents Day next Monday, Feb. 17. All City offices, except for emergency services, will be closed.
Residential and commercial trash and recycling will not be collected on Monday, but the Los Reales Landfill will be open. All City of Tucson residential and commercial customers will have their trash and recycling services delayed by one day next week.
The City of Tucson’s Planning and Development Services Department (PDSD) is inviting the public to provide comments on two proposed text amendments to the City’s Unified Development Code (UDC) during a public hearing at the Mayor and Tucson Council meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 19. The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m.
On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, Granite Construction, under contract with the City of Tucson Transportation Department, is scheduled to begin work on the Five Points Art Enhancement Project at the intersection of Sixth Avenue, 18th Street and Stone Avenue.
The new art will consist of five overhead steel arches with electrified signs spanning each roadway segment of the intersection. The art also includes a six-foot-tall statue of Cesar Chavez that will beplaced on the point of the intersection, between Stone Avenue and Sixth Avenue.

Tucson Water is asking these questions and more as part of developing a long-range plan based on an integrated approach to water resource management known as “One Water.”
