    Legal Issues
    Plans’ Utilization in Implementation of the Unified Development Code
    Plan Amendments
    Future of Neighborhood and Area Plans
    In light of recent actions by City staff and the Mayor and Council, TRRG is once again partnering with Ward 6 Council member Steve Kozachik to host an educational forum on a topic which we believe is of upmost importance to Tucson residents. Steve will share what he learned at the Mayor and Council Study Session on Jan. 9, 2018 concerning how Neighborhood and Area Plans are used by Planning and Development Services Department (PDSD) during the development process. We will then hear from City Attorney and PDSD staff who will address items III.-VI., topics which have been compiled and defined by concerned TRRG members.
    If you live in an area with an Area and/or Neighborhood Plan, if you plan to develop a project in the City, or if your area is under or has potential development, you will want to attend this informative public meeting. Please spread the word among your Neighborhood Associations, friends and neighbors.
    I hope to see many of you, and others, at the January 18th meeting about Neighborhood Plans. Together we can make positive change happen.
