A message from APNA President David Bachman-Williams:
Hello Armory Park Neighbors and others,
We are going to have a virtual APNA board meeting tomorrow on Zoom. If you are interested in being included in the meeting please email Ken Taylor at email@example.com
Ken will make sure you get an invitation to be part of the Zoom meeting. If you are interested in being invited to all future APNA board meetings please let him know that, too. He will send out the invitations shortly before the meeting. You click on the link provided in his email and wait with everyone else in the virtual “waiting room”. Ken will then let us all in.
We are beginning the meeting 15 minutes early, at 6:15 so that our vice-president, Liz Burden can lead us through some icebreaker activities to get familiar with the way a Zoom meeting works. The actual meeting will start at approximately 6:30.
Attached is the agenda for the meeting. If you have any questions please let me know.
Come and hear what’s going on in the neighborhood and around town! Here’s the agenda for this month’s APNA Board meeting:

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.”
Please join the Tucson Police Department for “A Day in the Park with TPD” this Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm at Santa Rita Park. They will be in the park with several different static displays from their SWAT Team, Bomb Squad, Rapid Response Team, K9 and others. Tucson Fire Department will also be in attendance with one of their Engine trucks.
Food and activities will be on hand for everyone. Please come by and thank the police department for their service!
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.
