Armory Park Plan Published

Susan Beirer and Steve Grede made a presentation to APNA last May regarding a plan to document and preserve the public landscape (streetscape) of Armory Park. At that time it was agreed that the final document would be added to APNA website when finished. That has now happened and now Armory Park Conservation Master Plan 2017 is available to be downloaded as a PDF. It has been published by the Heritage Conservation Program of the College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture.

The plan came out of Helen Erickson’s Preservation Planning spring 2017 class.  Whatever your level of interest in Armory Park’s public spaces you will find something for you in this document. If your interest in the history and landscape is not too deep, scan through the pictures and read some of the related text. You will learn some new things about Armory Park. If you are deeply interested, you won’t want to miss a single word.

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.
