Fog Seal:

Paul's Note - June 3, 2022

I’ve long been an advocate for making neighborhood pools as available for Tucsonans, particularly young people, as possible. 

The trouble has always been funding. It took a long time for our budget to recover from the Great Recession, and one of the ways we saved money was by not opening pools and keeping limited schedules for the ones we opened. 

Operation Splash 2022

Protecting the traveling public on City streets during Tucson’s summer thunderstorm season is the objective of the Tucson Department of Transportation and Mobility’s (DTM) Operation Splash campaign. As weather patterns shift to bring moisture into Tucson, crews from DTM’s Streets Maintenance Division will deliver barricades to hundreds of dip crossings throughout the City beginning Monday, June 6, 2022.

Paul's Note - May 27, 2022

I’ve mulled over what to say about the mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Unfortunately, I’ve had to comment about mass shootings too many times while I’ve been in office, including one that killed and wounded several of my friends shortly after I was appointed to the council. 

I’ll leave the comments on this one to Steve Kerr, a person many of us in Tucson have admired for decades.  

Commercial Parking Code Amendments

Planning and Development Services is working developing on a set of changes to the Unified Development Code (UDC) that will affect the minimum amount and type of parking spaces required at certain commercial locations.

These changes to parking regulations are proposed as part of the City's climate action response, ongoing support for local businesses, and goals for high-quality public outdoor spaces. 

Commercial Parking Amendments Public Meeting

The Planning and Development Services Department will host a virtual public meeting to discuss proposed changes to commercial parking regulations in Tucson.

The meeting will be held to discuss the two components of the proposed text amendment which include EV charging requirements and expanded eligibility for the Individual Parking Plan. Public feedback is welcome and will be gathered during this meeting.
