The next APNA board meeting is Tuesday, April 12 at 7 pm at St. Andrews Episcopal Church. Agenda posted below. Two key presentation of note are scheduled, about the proposed development plans for the lot at 4th & Broadway (by Ron Schwabe, Peach Properties), and about the proposed 18th street traffic mitigations (by City of Tucson staff).

One thought on “APNA Board Meeting, April 12”
In 2009, APNA was notified that the City of Tucson wants to put a traffic signal at Park Ave. and 18th St. New traffic reconfigurations are coming to our area because of the new Kino/22nd St. intersection (which is at 100% completion and scheduled to start this year). 18th Street will become a signalized route from I-10 to Ajo Way, and potentially a major truck route. APNA held several neighborhood meetings about this proposal, and 18th St. residents within the neighborhood generated a petition to close 18th St. at Jacobus. The City refused.
The Neighborhood then charged the Transportation Committee to work with the City to develop strategies and mitigations that could potentially minimize the impacts to the Armory Park neighborhood. Armory Park has also worked with Millville and Santa Rita Neighborhoods to minimize the impacts throughout the area. The City developed plans, with the T.C.’s input, and petitions were circulated. So far, they include new traffic circles and partial closure with mitigations on 18th St. Following approvals/recommendations from the Fire Dept., Police, Sun Tran, TDOT, Environmental Dept., Ward offices and various other agencies, the plans are now at the 75% Completion state and the resident petitions are at 80% approvals.
Please come share your thoughts and comments so APNA can proceed with mitigations before the traffic signal goes in this Fall!
