A number of major streets in Pima County’s District 1 will receive road repair work after the Board of Supervisors approved the release of a $5 million pavement rehabilitation appropriation from the county’s general fund.
County residents are invited to spread Thanksgiving love with Pima Animal Care Center dogs through PACC’s annual holiday dog-walking event. The event runs from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 27 at 4000 N. Silverbell Road.
I am very pleased to announce that District 1 will be receiving a large portion of the $5 million allocated for road repairs this year. Although the County Administrator did not approve of road repair funds being allocated for neighborhood roads, there was some good news for residents when the Board approved $1.9 million for arterial road repair projects in District 1 at the November 18th Board of Supervisors meeting. While I did ask for consideration of funding neighborhood roads in failing condition, I was informed by the Director of Transportation that only arterial roads would be addressed. Regardless, at this time of Thanksgiving, I am very thankful that my fellow Supervisors approved any funding for District 1 road repairs and hope we can continue to work to find solutions to our road problems.
