The Gateway Overlay zoning code preserves the Tucson Mountains' scenic views.
GPANA supports the 2002 Gateway Overlay Zone with stricter standards within 600 feet of designated gateways to Tucson, including Gates Pass Road west of Anklam. It includes further setbacks of 40 feet from the original Pima County right-of-way on this scenic route to museums, parks, and other attractions.
