PLAN TUCSON, the new City of Tucson General & Sustainability Plan, has been ratified by voters at the November 5, 2013 General Election.
The results of the November 5, 2013 General Election indicate that Plan Tucson, the City's new General and Sustainability Plan (Proposition 402) has been ratified by the voters. The City's Plan Tucson Team would like to THANK ALL MEMBERS OF OUR COMMUNITY THAT DEDICATED THEIR TIME AND EFFORTS in the preparation of the Plan through actively participating in policy working groups, workshops, and/or public hearings, and/or reviewing and commenting on multiple drafts of the Plan.
The ten-year Plan provides guidance on community building, but the public process itself contributed to building community by bringing together both a broad range of people representing governmental agencies and non-governmental organizations, including neighborhoods, business groups, developers, educational institutions, social agencies, environmental organizations, and others. So many of contributed so many hours of their valuable time, sharing perspectives on a host of topics, sometimes agreeing and sometimes strenuously disagreeing. There were "ah-ha" moments and "uh-uh" moments. The final document, however, reflects the commitment to our community, stoical perseverance, and willingness to seek common ground of all those involved. Again, thank you.
We will follow up shortly with details on when Plan Tucson will take effect.

Mayor and Council adopted the Plan on July 9, 2013, and then on August 6, 2013, amended the Plan to address a request from the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.

That map can be seen on pg. 3.138, along with a reference to the map on pg. 3.136.
