City Council Amends Public Space Regulations

The Mayor and Tucson City Council last night passed several revisions to the Tucson Code that regulates the use of City parks, sidewalks, and the provision of services to homeless in the community.

Under the new rules, groups will need a permit to sell or distribute food at parks and nearby sidewalks. Permits will not be needed for distributing water, nor will they be required on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.

Also, people on sidewalks only will be allowed to store items that are four cubic feet or less between the hours of 10 p.m. to 7 a.m., but no items are allowed at other times.
