GPANA Board Meeting Snapshot:  May 19, 2018

  • Our recent successful campaign in defeating  the oversize, electronic/ digital sign at the Wildlife Museum brought to light an inconsistency in what Pima County laws require for ‘Notice’.  Zoning cases involving suburban or rural parcels, written notice must be provided to other property owners if the properties are within 1000’ of each other.  However, in matters requesting Variances, the notice requirement is only extended to 300’.  GPANA will contact our District 5 Supervisor Richard Elias to voice our support for requiring 1000’ for all Notice requirements.


  • We remain vigilant in matters that could affect our neighborhoods, such as the Evangelos and Las Lomas properties that remain on the market, as well as the appeal of the Enclaves property owner brought after the Board of Supervisors denied his request to build on a Protected Peak.  We’ll also keep you informed of any changes to the schedule for the Speedway/Gates Pass road improvements.


  • Please ask your neighbors to join GPANA if they’re not already members and let us know if there are any issues that you think we need to know about.


  • Crime update:  no residential burglaries have been reported to the Sheriff in the past several months, though some petty thefts and graffiti have been noted.
