E-scooters are being deployed in Tucson as of Sept 12, 2019. Many will be in our part of town and we will start seeing them on our neighborhood streets fairly quickly. This is a pilot program with two operators: Bird and Razor. Each operator may launch and operate up to 500 scooters (1,000 total), and can launch an additional 250 scooters in “opportunity zones” – characterized by a high percentage of low-income households without access to a motor vehicle.

All are welcome!
On Saturday, February 16, we exceeded our goal of 80 trees and planted 101 new trees with the help of Trees for Tucson. Most of the trees went in the right-of-way in front of our homes, but many neighbors also chose to buy trees for their yards. We started the morning by planting five new Pistache trees along the western edge of Catalina Park, pictured above.

Top police officers, from Chief Chris Magnus to Lt. Jen Turner and four others, spoke passionately about the huge difficulties in policing homeless people living in De Anza…

It has been a couple of years since we updated the Preferred Provider List, which is a very useful benefit of WUNA membership.
Most of us have historic or at least older homes and fixing them requires a knowledge of older systems and finishes. Some trades people enjoy the challenge, others hate dealing with our complex issues – and others pretend they know how and make things worse.
