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.
From APNA President Anne Cooper:
Heads up! Our next Brush and Bulky (B&B) collection will be the week of 12/31/18—which means probably 1/2/19 or 1/3/19.
Why are we having B&B now? It’s because the City has redone the entire zone structure to avoid splitting neighborhoods. Also for 2019 it’s launching “Brush and Bulky Plus.” We will be in a new zone, 05. We and others in Zone 5 will be the guinea pigs for this new program. We expect to have a City rep explain it at an upcoming APNA meeting.
The Armory Park Holiday Party will be held on Sunday, December 16th from 5-8pm at Giovanna’s home located at 505 S 6th ave. This is a potluck party and a sign up sheet has been created through Perfect Potluck. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Can’t wait to see you all there!
