1. Recap of Fall General Meeting. About 30 neighbors attended our meeting on Sept. 26th, 7:00 pm at the Tanque Verde Lutheran Church. After a welcome and introductions from our TVVA Board President Peter Reinthal, we began the program. 

Catlow Shipek from the Watershed Management Group gave us an update on the River Run Network and Sabino/Tanque Verde Creek program. Check out their webpage for more information: https://watershedmg.org/river-run-network/overview

Supervisor Steve Christy and his staff discussed the “Just Fix The Roads” program. This program includes a $0.25 property tax increase per $100 of assessed value to go towards road maintenance, and a 13 member Transportation Advisory Committee appointed by each Supervisor and the County Administrator. 
Beth Borozan welcomed us, and introduced Steve Christy District 4 Supervisor, who discussed some of the funding and property tax issues. Next, Lucretia Free told us about the Transportation Advisory Committee and their duties to work with local groups and councils to help prioritize how funding is applied to road repairs. Carmine DeBonis, Deputy County Administrator, gave an excellent presentation on road funding, where funding comes from and how it is applied. Dick Katz, Southeast Regional Council member, told us about his group that works with the County to prioritize road work funding in their area.

After the presentations we enjoyed cookies and lemonade, and great discussions with our guests and neighbors.

2. SolarH2O Rezoning Request. This request for a rezoning was denied by the Pima County Board Of Supervisors. The rezoning request applied to a change of 1.68 acres from CR-1 (Single Residence - Conditional) to CB-2 (General Business), on Tanque Verde Road near Tanque Verde Loop Road, for a self-storage, office, and RV/Boat storage facility. The owners have to wait one year before submitting this plan again, but can submit a different plan with lesser impact before then.
