A message from Community Resource CSO Monica Van Norman, Tucson Police Department: “Here is an opportunity for you, our community members, to become more involved in helping Tucson Police Officers make our communities safer. A workshop will be held February 15th, 6-8 pm for those of you who would like to join TPD’s volunteer team, or if you’re thinking about it and would like more information on the program.”
Reminder: the APNA meeting is Tuesday 2/12 at 7 PM at St Andrew’s Parish Hall. Come and hear what’s going on the neighborhood, including an update from Page Repp on the Dusk Festival. If you recall, at a previous meeting, Page took feedback from the neighborhood regarding the festival. At the end of the discussion, by a motion of hands from the audience, it was determined that we would have Page come back in February to discuss updates to noise mitigation, street closures and times for the festival.
From APNA President Anne Cooper:
Just a few notes and updates from the meeting last Tuesday.
Page Repp, promoter of the Dusk festival was at the meeting to hear feedback from the neighborhood regarding the festival. Brent Dennis (Parks and Rec) and Greg Jackson (City Manager’s office) as well as Steve Kozachik were also there to answer questions about Armory Park and the permit process for events at Armory Park.
The majority of the questions at the meeting and from the listserv could be listed into 3 categories: 1) noise, 2) access – specifically on 6th Avenue, and 3) privatization of the park.

Heads up! Our next Brush and Bulky (B&B) collection will be the week of 12/31/18—which means probably 1/2/19 or 1/3/19.
Why are we having B&B now? It’s because the City has redone the entire zone structure to avoid splitting neighborhoods. Also for 2019 it’s launching “Brush and Bulky Plus.” We will be in a new zone, 05. We and others in Zone 5 will be the guinea pigs for this new program. We expect to have a City rep explain it at an upcoming APNA meeting.
