A message from Ward 6 Council Member Steve Kozachik: “The weather is heating up. Consequently, we are seeing a lot of dehydration among the Central American guests who are now arriving at the monastery. Some report having been penned in outdoor corrals in El Paso, then having been bussed here with no fluids being offered. Their condition validates those stories. If you are so inclined, we could use 6-packs of small bottles of Gatorade/Powerade, or powdered or liquid flavored Pedialyte. We now hear directly from Border Patrol that they will be dropping up to 300 guests in the next few days – bypassing ICE in the process. The problem is not decreasing in magnitude.”

A message and a request from APNA President Anne Cooper:
As many of you know we had Page Repp, promoter of the Dusk festival, come to the APNA meetings in December and last night to discuss the 3 main concerns that arose from the Dusk festival last November. To reiterate they were:
2) Access and
3) Start/end time of festival
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.
