Dear Neighbors: 
Just a few notes and updates from the meeting last Tuesday.

The majority of the questions at the meeting and from the listserv could be listed into 3 categories: 1) noise, 2) access – specifically on 6th Avenue, and 3) privatization of the park.

APNA’s 11/13/18 Meeting: Crime, Armory Park, Dusk Festival

Some notes from APNA President Anne Cooper about last Tuesday’s general meeting:
We had representatives from the police department and Pima County attorneys office discuss crime in the neighborhood and how we can continue our dialogue to make Armory Park a safe neighborhood. We will continue to actively partner with them to ensure the police coverage we are enjoying continues.
(please see police incident report below).
We had a continued discussion about Armory Park and in particular the Dusk Festival. As a followup to this and the listserv discussions, I have invited and confirmed Brent Dennis (the head of Parks and Rec), Steve Kozachik (Ward 6 councilman) and Greg Jackson (city managers office who approves special permits for Armory Park) to the next APNA meeting on December 11th. I will send out reminders in advance so that we can get as many people who want, to attend. Come with your questions and solutions – we want this to be a fruitful discussion.
