THANK YOU AGAIN to everyone who participated in the Open Houses! With the Plan Tucson Draft available for public review, five Public Open Houses were held in December 2012 and January 2013 in different locations around the city. At each Open House a presentation on the Plan Tucson draft took place during the first half-hour, and participants shared their comments and talked one-on-one with the Plan Tucson team. Comments received at these Open Houses, along with comments received by other means, will be shared at Planning Commission and Mayor and Council public hearings in early 2013.
