Pima County

Pima County, preparing a new 10-year comprehensive plan, solicited public input in many areas under the heading, “Pima Prospers.”  They have now released a Draft Comprehensive Plan.  A section of it talks directly about several areas as “Community Development Targets.”  

Presentations were held in various communities throughout May to explain the proposals.  

“Special Areas” will receive special zoning to develop or maintain the unique character of a neighborhood.  

“Appropriate site design,” the draft states, “will enhance the economic life” of the designated area.  

The special areas in question include Catalina Foothills, Picture Rocks, Tucson Mountans, Ajo Corridor, Mission-Valencia Area and others in Pima County.  

The 103-page draft, which is not a final document, can be viewed at webcms.pima.gov/government/pima_prospers.
