Mediation services for GPANA members – As president of GPANA, Denise Garland gets calls regarding disagreements between neighbors. While this is outside the realm of GPANA’s mission, it could be helpful to steer conflicts to a mediation service. Doing some research, Denise found one agency that can help to handle these types of conflicts: Arizona Mediation Center, 1846 East Innovation Drive, Oro Valley. Contact Nicole Casaus (520) 200-8575. A mediation service can be a less expensive way (compared to hiring a lawyer) to resolve conflicts between neighbors. Mention GPANA for a special rate.
