Gift Cards to Save 4th Avenue Business: Round 2!

Round 2 of the Fourth Avenue Gift Card Program goes live on May 4 at 6am!

Historic Fourth Avenue is the heartbeat of Tucson. Its character is defined by the many unique, locally owned businesses within the district. Preserving and supporting those businesses is fundamental to preserving the character of Fourth Avenue itself. The Fourth Avenue Merchants Association (FAMA) and an Anonymous Angel will add $10 to each card which goes directly to the merchant. Together we will be making a $35,000 investment in the future of our community’s small, locally owned businesses.

For $25 you receive a $35 gift card for use at the following participating Fourth Avenue Businesses:

City of Tucson E-Scooters Pilot Program

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.

City Airs “Quality of Life” Plan for De Anza Park

About 60 people, a full house with many of them from West University homes and businesses and City offices, crowded into Trinity Church on August 9, 2018, to hear about a new police plan to combat homelessness and crime at our neighborhood’s two parks.

Call for Good Contractor References: Preferred Provider List Update!

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.

That is why it is important that we share with each other the names of people who have worked for us and done a great job!

So if you have had a good experience with someone who has worked on your historic home recently, please email Carolyn the name and contact information. This will only take you a minute but can save your neighbors much gnashing of teeth and pulling of hair. Consider it your first good deed for 2018!
