Important Contacts

I strongly urge you to attend the  Baffert meeting (Monday 12/18, Armory Park Center, 6 PM) if at all possible. Your views are important. Bill Duffy, APHZAB Chair, passed some important contacts via our listserv, quoted here in italics:

Several people have asked how they can share their views on the Baffert proposal if they are unable to attend the Monday meeting. Here are some points of contact:

John Beall, Special Manager, Entitlements and Special Exemptions Team, Planning and Development Services Dept (PDSD): 520-837-6966 john.beall@tucsonaz.govThe announcement letter IDs Beall as the principal PDSD contact.

You can also submit written comments to PDSD Director Scott Clark ( or PDSD Deputy Director Lynne Birkinbine ( PDSD’s snail mail address is: Planning and Development Services, Public Works Building, 201 N Stone Ave, Tucson AZ 85701.

I would recommend sending a copy of any comments to Ward 6 Council Member Steve Kozachik ( He has been very helpful to us on this project and I believe shares our concerns. 

I am repeating this important information in hopes that it may reach someone who does not subscribe to the listserv and because it will always be accessible here in the Historic Preservation category; just click on that label in the right column.

  1. Hi Jon – I did some investigating and found no visible movement on this. The developer must make a report of the meeting before moving on in the rezoning process. The sense of the meeting was that most did not object to the proposed structure but a large majority objected to removing the property from the Armory Park HPZ. Stakeholders have been looking for a way to accommodate on building height in a way that makes the project economically viable, complies with current city code and does not create a destructive precedent for HPZs. Thanks for your question.


  2. Any update on what happened at this meeting? Been trying to find out where the Baffert project is at, I live just around the corner from that lot. Thanks!
