To commemorate the completion of pedestrian improvements and water harvesting basins for the Naylor Neighborhood and Changemaker High School, Pima County, the City of Tucson and students from Changemaker High School invites the public to attend a dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new pedestrian bridge at the Swan Park Wash.
Naylor-Changemaker Bridge Dedication
Friday, December 15, 2017
East Side of S. Belvedere Avenue at Swan Park (south of 26th Street)
Pima County Supervisor Ramón Valadez and Changemaker High School students and staff will speak at the ceremony.
The project was funded by voter-approved Pima County Neighborhood Reinvestment bond funds, C2E Grants and the Sonoran Institute. Improvements included an all-weather pedestrian bridge crossing Swan Park Wash, 500 feet of new sidewalks, a new speed table crossing and water harvesting basins.
The project was developed from a classroom assignment at Changemaker High School. Students were to identify a community problem and propose a solution to solve that problem. Whenever the Swan Park Wash flooded, students, parents and area residents were unable to access Naylor-Roberts K-8 School, Changemaker High School, as well as bus stops and nearby businesses. The $229,000 project was completed earlier this month.
