City Manager Mike Hein’s recent decision to delay work on a signature Rio Nuevo project, a reconstructed Mission San Agustín, sparked consternation among City Council members. Here are two views – from Councilwoman Regina Romero, who represents the Ward 1 site for that project and others, and from Councilwoman Nina Trasoff, who has been overseeing planning for downtown improvements as chairwoman of the council’s Rio Nuevo subcommittee.

REGINA ROMERO: City unwavering in support of $1B in West Side revitalization

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
