APNA Formally Adopts "Development Principles" for the Armory Park Neighborhood

After working on them for the past two years, holding numerous public and committee meetings on them, and finalizing what should be included,
APNA has formally adopted a set of Development Principles that future developers can review to make sure their projects are in keeping with neighborhood residents’ wishes. These principles and a soon to be developed “Manual of Usage” will compliment the Armory Park Historic Zone Advisory Board’s guidelines, throughout the greater neighborhood, not just the Historic Neighborhood Preservation Zone. In fact, APNA will soon have at least two historic districts ( APHD / APHPZ and the new Downtown Historic District) within the year.

Please read the attached document, and let us know what you think!

I am a relatively recent Armory Park resident (2/16) along with my wife, Donna and our little dog Lulu. In our 7+ decades, Donna and I lived over 30 years in Anchorage, Alaska before moving to Arizona. We have been Arizona residents for 16 years before coming here including 12 in Green Valley and four in west Tucson. We love the neighborhood for its history, walkability and interesting residents. Lulu insists on walking every day so you may see us following her around and picking up trash to keep our neighborhood presentable.
