General Meeting Information

March 11, 2014 – 7:00 p.m. at St. Andrew’ Episcopal Church, Parish Hall

Hi Neighbors,

I wanted to extend another invitation to our General Meeting.  During the meeting, representatives from Poster, Frost, Mirto will discuss the Downtown Links Land Use Urban Design Plan (as well as some fantastic acronyms). The “DLUOD” will help “carry forward the revitalization goals and objectives of the greater Tucson Downtown, the adjacent neighborhoods, the adjacent districts, and the various property owners and stakeholders.”  In addition, they seek to avoid controversies like those seen at the Maingate development and The District, and to help launch the planning process for the Streetcar Land Use and Development Implementation Plan (“SLUP”).

I’ve attached documents forwarded by their representative, Evren Sonmez, which outline their work and show exactly where the proposed changes will affect Armory Park. Please take a look:

Also, representatives from Tucson Hullabaloo and Cyclovia have been invited to discuss their upcoming events. I think most are familiar with Cyclovia, but if not, their website is here:  http://www.cycloviatucson.org. Hullabaloo is joining forces with Cyclovia this year to bring family activities and live music to Armory Park on April 5th and 6th.  They’re hoping for a great turn out. But with the increased number of park visitors (they estimate between 6,000 and 8,000 participants), they want to reach out and learn how they can make the Hullabaloo an enjoyable experience for everyone, including neighbors near the park.  Please join us on Tuesday to learn more.

Last but not least, take a look at our spiffy new newsletter if you haven’t received one yet:

Thanks as always,

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.
