Ward 6 Info

West University Neighborhood is located in Ward VI. Our Council Member is Steve Kozachik. Contact info: (520) 791-4601 or email

Parking

Most West University streets have controlled parking. You can get a sticker to affix to your car that allows you to park in front of your home from ParkWise (791-5071). You can also receive a parking permit that you can give to guests to display on their dash. Do not park on the easement, you can be ticketed. Tickets cost $50 or more. Should you plan on having a meeting in your home during the hours that the parking restrictions are in effect, call ParkWise (791-5071) the day before, tell them when the meeting will be and about how many cars there will be and they will avoid ticketing.

Reporting Zoning, Building Code and Other Violations

Reports of zoning violations, building code violations and complaints about weeds, trash, junk cars, etc. should be reported to the City Department of Neighborhood Resources at 792-CITY or 792-2489.

Reporting Transportation Related Concerns

Is there a pothole you’d like to see fixed? Is a street sign missing? Is a tree limb hanging too close over a roadway or sidewalk? Report these issues and their exact location to the Tucson Department of Transportation (TDOT) by email or by phone: (520) 791-3154.

Graffiti

We are told that the best way to battle graffiti is to remove it quickly. If you cannot remove the graffiti on your property yourself, call the Graffiti Removal Program at 792-2489. There is also lots of helpful info in the Graffiti Removal Program section of the City of Tucson website.

Museums

The neighborhood is home to many workshops, studios and galleries of local artists and artisans as well as museums. The University of Arizona brings several museums and art galleries to the neighborhood, including the University of Arizona Museum of Art, the John P. Schaefer Center for Creative Photography and the Arizona State Museum. The Postal History Foundation is also within the West University Neighborhood. 

Parks

West University has two parks. DeAnza at Speedway and Stone has volleyball courts. Catalina Park has a children’s splashpad open seasonally, and playground equipment. Through the efforts of our neighbor Judy Sensibar, WUNA was the recipient of a $500,000 grant for upgrades to Catalina Park and these improvements have led to a vast increase in family usage of the park.
